HUDSON WEST MUSIC FESTIVAL
Saturday, September 8th, noon - 10 pm
Hudson West will present ten acts in its second annual day-long event this September 8th in downtown Jersey City. By popular demand, we're bringing back our two-stage approach which will ensure a continuous stream of live music from coveted national and regional performers. In addition, this year's event will continue our popular, interactive music workshops--all free with the price of admission. Finally, to round out your festival experience, we're cultivating a wide-ranging collection of art, craft and food vendors to satisfy all artistic and epicurean palates.
Date: Saturday, September 8, 2018, noon to 10:00 pm
Admission: $25 in advance, $30 at the door
With some of the best regional and national acts, it is a music festival with a different approach - the selected musicians are intentionally eclectic and cover a broad array of acoustic music ranging from blues, honky-tonk, Django Rheinhardt hot jazz, contemporary singer-songwriters, and some artists with a bit more out-of-the-box sound (baroque-folk, anyone?). See videos on our Performers page or click on any of the performers below:
We will have ten groups and four workshops from noon until 10:00 pm. Your admission price gives you access to all the groups and workshops. No need to register for the workshops, just stop in and join the fun - see our Workshop webpage for more details, or Performers webpage to see more information about the performers.
MUSIC WORKSHOPS, ARTISTS, VENDORS
Free interactive musical workshops, all by musicians performing at the festival, are an extraordinary opportunity to learn. Check them out at Music Workshops.
A fun, festival experience with a full bar, an entire hall dedicated to an array of food and retail vendors, and Roving Sketch Artists capturing the moment.
"...the organizers managed to scale the pinnacle of art-meets-organization on the first try; it was stunning."
