EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, ANGEL OLSEN, BELL WITCH, GENESIS BREYER P-ORRIDGE & EDLEY O'DOWD are set to headline the BASILICA SOUNDSCAPE 2016, taking place in HUDSON, NY, SEPTEMBER 16th through 18th.

The weekend will also include "Writers In The Rafters," and a SUNDAY brunch and marketplace. Marking its 5th year, BASILICA HUDSON's weekend of music + art is a site-specific, weekend-long experimental music and art event that draws unconventional connections, parallels and collaborations between a diverse array of artists. Co-curated by KICKSTARTER's BRANDON STOSUY, LEG UP! MANAGEMENT's BRIAN DeRAN, MELISSA AUF DER MAUR and BASILICA HUDSON's TONY STONE, it is a carefully curated two-day event that's been called "the anti-festival" for offering a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature.
For the third year in a row, "Writers In The Rafters" presents immersive spoken word performances set in the rafters of an industrial building, featuring GENESIS BRYER P-ORRIDGE and AMBER TAMBLYN. Past participants have included RICHARD HELL, HOLLY ANDERSON & CHRIS BROKAW, DORETHA LASKY, ARIANA REINS, SARAH JEAN ALEXANDER, MEREDICT GRAVES, MIRA GONZALEZ and MISH WAY.
