Last week we saw the announcement of the UK’s Download Festival crossing the pond to North America for a US version of the event in Mountain View, California. Event producers in the east coast got a bit envious and have now created their own to be called Across The Pond.
According to Billboard, concerts will be held simultaneously at Keyspan Park in Brooklyn and at Richmond County Bank Ballpark in Staten Island, NY. The two locations will host concerts on October 1 & 2. Although the lineup has yet to be finalized, early confirmations include the Pixies, Oasis, the Killers, Beck, Gang Of Four, Jet, Belle & Sebastian and the New York Dolls. So far so good!
