Bowie To Start a Creative Festival in NYC in 2007

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Quick on the heels of his release of the Under The Moonlight DVD , David Bowie has announced plans to start a new festival in New York. It's called the High Line Festival and will go down in Manhattan in 2007.

He's following the trend of recent years, where travelling festivals have become replaced by shows that camp out in one location, for up to days at a time. Not wanting to be like everyone else, the High Line Festival will be 10 full-on days of art, music and film. That's a lot of art music and film. Although Bowie will curate the first edition, he'll enlist the help of Josh Wood and David Binder (Hedwig and the Angry Inch). Bowie will then choose all future curators.

The festival is intended to showcase art that "celebrates the spirit of David Bowie's creative vision". Bowie went on to say "That will be an ongoing mission of the High Line Festival – to offer performances and exhibitions that are unique and original to New York."

A festival line-up is to be announced at a later date.
