Focusing on new music and emerging young bands, the CBGB Festival will stay true to the original mission of the CBGB & OMFUG club that once lived on the Bowery. The goal being to help new artists grow, gain visibility and be seen by the music industry.
The festival includes four key areas; live music stages, film premieres hosted by the film makers and screenings, a distilled spirits fest and entertainment conference panels with different festival components spread across 30 venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn over the four days. Pass and ticket prices are being kept as low as possible in comparison to other events around the country.
