Putting a spotlight on artists whose work is synonymous with New York City, The 10th Annual River To River® Festival unveiled a stellar line-up of completely free events that includes Patti Smith, Rufus Wainwright, Laurie Anderson, STREB, Sean Lennon and a tribute to The Bottom Line.

As it marks its tenth season, the festival is evolving from a summer-long series of diverse events to a more ambitious, densely packed, month-long festival showcasing a curated roster of New York icons as well as world-class artists. Reflecting this vision, this summer will see the debut of several new flagship events including: Extraordinary Moves, a weeklong celebration of dance at the World Financial Center; a production of Shakespeare’s Henry V performed in Battery Park and on Governor’s Island; and Come Out and Play, a series of participatory games that will activate the streets of Lower Manhattan.

Preview coverage of the festival included the New York Times, Rolling Stone, New York Post, PaperMag, WNYC, Pitchfork, Paste Magazine, Village Voice, BrooklynVegan, New York Press, and NBC New York.
