The National will host a two-day festival in New York. The event, called The National presents: There’s No Leaving New York; is set to take place September 29th and 30th, at Forest Hills Stadium. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Future Islands, Cat Power, Cigarettes After Sex, Phoebe Bridgers, U.S. Girls, Bully, Adia Victoria are also on the bill.
“Our show last October at Forest Hills Stadium was one of our favorite shows in the history of the band.” says guitarist Aaron Dessner. “The incredible legacy of the place and the fact that it still feels intimate even given its size, we started talking immediately about finding a way to come back for multiple nights with friends. We couldn’t be happier to announce these shows in September with some of our favorite artists.”
Tickets go on sale at 10am ET Friday, April 13th.
The National have partnered with PLUS1 to donate $1 of every ticket sold, to the Brownsville Community Culinary Center. Members of the band’s newly launched fan club, the Cherry Tree community, will have priority access to purchase. For more info on tickets and Cherry Tree community, head here.
