Summer is here—and it’ll be over before you know it. Full Moon Festival NYC has long set up shop outdoor venues like Governors Island and Brooklyn Mirage, but this year it’s bringing its mix of music and art to Queens event space Knockdown Center. In its seventh year as one of the city’s top summer music festivals, the fest is named for and modeled after the monthly all-night parties on the Thai island of Koh Phangan. This year’s lineup blends pop, hip-hop and dance music presenting more than a dozen acts. Our highlights to the fest are below.
