This July, MCP Presents is bringing us a brand new festival in New York and they are calling it The Hudson Project. The lineup was announced recently and this first-year fest looks to be stacked. Headliners include up-and-coming rapper Kendrick Lamar, electronic legend Bassnectar, Modest Mouse, and The Flaming Lips. That alone tells us this event is not messing around, but the lineup continues to impress as you go down the list. And friends, this is just the first installment of the lineup.

The Hudson Project is not picky with genres, which seems to fit the goal of it being a Music Project. You can see anything from hip hop, to jam band, to electronic, to pop rock, to jazz. Hip hop artists include, but are not limited to, Atmosphere and Isaiah Rashad. Rock acts include Matt and Kim, Capital Cities, and Dr. Dog. There are a wide variety of electronic acts ranging from Bro Safari, Keys and Krates, and Paper Diamond to Griz, Big Gigantic, Emancipator, and Conspirator. If you’re feeling a bit more groovy you can check out Lettuce, Tauk, Moon Hooch, or Marco Benevento. Some unique acts include a DJ set from Moby, and live sets from Infected Mushroom, Nightmares on Wax, and Bonobo.

If you are a music fiend and are saying to yourself, “I’ve seen a lot of these acts before, why should I go to this festival to see them again?” I have some answers for you. My first response is simply that it is a festival. It’s not a show confined to four walls. You can groove out in the fresh New York air, bond with the community while camping, and check out the art that is also included in the project. It may be a first-year fest, which would suggest there would be some production flaws, but MCP Presents is no stranger to holding these types of events. Tickets to this camping-optional festival are also fairly affordable, coming in less expensive than most other big festivals this summer.

Another reason to check out the The Hudson Project is these big name artists, some of which haven’t come out of the woodwork in a while, may have new things to share. Bassnectar has been working on a boatload of new music that seems likely to be played at this event. In addition to this, festival sets tend to vary from indoor show sets so you probably won’t be hearing the same thing twice. Festivals also provide a unique opportunity for collaborations. With all these similar and different artists in one spot, you never know who might join forces to create a brand new musical experience. Acts like Big Gigantic and Griz have been known to partner up. So really, my question for you music fans is, why wouldn’t you go to The Hudson Project?

Released April 7, on his own Revealed Recordings record label, Hardwell takes an old school track and gives it a makeover with an infusion of his Dutch sound the world has come to love. The original track was released by The Prodigy in 1991 and marks the 100th release for his label.

Hardwell was voted the #1 DJ in the world in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll. He also headlined the main stage at ultra and threw his own Revealed at Mansion party with his label mates Dannic and Dyro for Miami Music week. And the announcements don’t stop there! He’s also recently announced his Revealed North American Bus Tour that will be hittin up 10 of North America’s most prestigious venues. At the forefront of the progressive house scene, Hardwell returns to his earlier more familiar sound with this big room track.
