glamglare’s MONDO.NYC must-see picks

Last year, MONDO.NYC hit the New York music scene for the very first time and is heading into round two, starting October 4th. While MONDO.NYC is still a fairly small festival with roughly 180 participating artists, they come from all over the United States, Europe and Australia and this means a lot to discover! The festival’s focus is clearly on exciting new artists, with a few bigger names thrown in.

The particular allure of a festival like this lays in the possibility to explore at your own leisure without the need to be bound at one big stage or one venue only. With that in mind, MONDO.NYC concentrates on a few independently owned music venues on the Lower East Side, namely:

  • The Bowery Electric
  • Rockwood Music Hall
  • Pianos
  • The Delancey
  • Berlin Bar
  • DROM

Aside from music, MONDO.NYC offers an impressive conference part, three days jam-packed with sessions, panels and workshops all around the music business. A badge gets you into the conference action AND the showcases.

We have listened through most of the 180+ participating acts, checked out the MONDO.NYC recommended highlights and our picks are acts we finally want to see live, or want to see again or are simply curious how they would sound live. With most of the action being on the Lower East Side, we do the festival thing and hop from place to place. Here’s our schedule for MONDO.NYC 2017, with room for spontaneous discoveries… If you see us, please say ‘hi’. Enjoy!
