The third annual Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival at Brookfield Place featured two days of free music with the legendary B.B. King, Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys, Alejandro Escovedo and The James Hunter Six.

Pre-festival media coverage in outlets like the New York Times, PIX Morning News, and DNAinfo helped bring an audience of 20,000 people to lower Manhattan.

The Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival has now been established as one of New York City’s premiere music festivals as Time Out New York declared that it’s “hard to argue with a sweet free fest like this one.”

AM New York crowed “if you’re feeling blue, this music festival is sure to lift your spirits.”

And the New York Daily News raved that the free festival would produce “the greatest night of Latino roots rock New York will see this year.”
