HONK NYC! 2022
The 16th Annual HONK NYC! Festival (October 11 – 19, 2022) is back after a wildly productive summer with NYC DOT’s Open Streets. This year’s festival celebrates the city’s post-COVID resurgence with a 9-day extravaganza of street band music and spectacle that highlights Gotham’s incredible variety of culture. Funded in part by the NYC Department of Transportation, Staten Island Arts, and Maker Park Radio, HONK NYC! parades through Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Each day’s event combines music, movement, and DIY-making, encouraging audience members to become co-creators of the festivities through dancing, crafting, and playing with the band.
HONK NYC! brings bands to NYC from around the globe. This year we are excited to present the NYC premiere of Banda Rim Ram Bum, from Santiago, Chile, fusing indigenous Andean sounds of Tinku and Diablada with cumbia, Afro-Latin rhythms, carnaval, and salsa in a celebration of Latine diversity. We are also pleased to present Young Fellaz Brass Band, bringing their authentic New Orleans Second Line experience to New York for the first time. In addition to these out-of-town bands, HONK NYC! 2022 will present NYC-based artists whose work focuses on preserving, interpreting, and reimagining street music traditions from BIPOC diasporic cultural expressions.
Venue: Various venues and throughout open streets in nyc's boroughs
