THE HIGH LINE FESTIVAL
The H&M High Line Festival is a new multi-discipline arts festival that will be curated each year by a different artist. The inaugural edition, curated by David Bowie, will run May 9 to 19, 2007.
The ten-day mash-up of music, film, comedy, visual art and performance will highlight all of David's favorite artists. The best of the best.
The inaugural 10-day festival will take place in venues near the High Line, the elevated rail structure soon to open as a public open space, running through the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell's Kitchen. A portion of each ticket sale will go to benefit Friends of the High Line, the 501(c)3 organization currently working with the City of New York to transform the 1930's rail structure into a park, set to open in 2008.
Please Note: none of the events of the High Line Festival will take place on the High Line itself.
