The 2017 edition of Basilica Soundscape fest is coming up this weekend at Hudson’s Basilica Hudson. On Friday (September 15), the fest will feature headliners Jlin, Thou, serpentwithfeet, Moor Mother and more; and Saturday’s line-up includes Zola Jesus, John Maus, Protomartyr, Priests, Yvette and more. Performances take place on two stages throughout the former glue factory, and set times don’t overlap. Yeah!

In addition, the festival will close on Sunday with “The Triptych.” Here are some details from the Basilica website:

Alongside our annual brunch and Mini-Farm & Flea marketplace of Hudson Valley makers, farmers, artists and chefs, this year will feature local artists coming together in performance, prayer, protest and peace. Inspired and named after the middle track on Max Roach’s groundbreaking 1960 record We Insist! (Freedom Now), the event is FREE and has been organized by Joey De Jesus and Shanekia McIntosh.

All-fest weekend passes are $75; students & seniors $60. Single day tickets are $40; students & seniors $35. Overnight camping is also available.
