David Bowie Bagging Artists for High Line Festival



Many artists such as Arcade Fire, Secret Machines and Ricky Gervais have said 'yes' to curator David Bowie.

The fine art, philopsohy and literature addict David Bowie is busy tying artists to appear at the High Line Festival. Among the performers that he had successfully bagged are band Arcade Fire, comedian Ricky Gervais, duo Air, rock band Deerhoof, 3 piece band Secret Machines and symphonic rock band The Polyphonic Spree.

The lineups will perform on the festival starting from May 9-19 at venues near High Line, Manhattan. Beside them, there will be many other various acts such as film, visual art and performance.

Filling in at the performance slot are the voiceover Ken Nordine, experimental artist Laurie Anderson and also actor John Cameron Mitchell. Meanwhile, there will also be an art exhibition plus the screenings of Bowie's 10 favorite Spanish-language films from the last century.

Bowie is the co-founder of this event together with entertainment icons David Binder and Josh Wood. They will give the first kick as the curators of the event while seeking their successor.

Bowie hoped that through this festival, the artists will get the exposure they deserve. "I'm also pleased that many emerging artists are participating alongside more established talents that represent a fairly wide cross section of disciplines within the arts community," he said.
