You can celebrate America’s independence this Fourth of July weekend while also enjoying a two-day series of independent art, music, fashion and culinary offerings.  It’s all happening at the Seaport District as part of the returning “Festival of Independence” on July 3rd and 4th from 1 P.M. to 9 P.M.

Presented by the Seaport District and Noisey (VICE’s music channel), the program will animate the historic area with a dynamic line-up of artists, including Wild Nothing, Lee Fields and The Expressions,  D.R.A.M., MeLo-X and Clifford the Big Red Dog and Friends.

A dedicated Noisey stage will feature a hand-picked selection of musicians with styles ranging from rock to hip-hop. The Howard Hughes Corporation will sponsor a second stage on Monday with a focus on family entertainment for all ages.

Attendees will also be able to enjoy the 40th anniversary of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks® and indulge in all the globally diverse food that Smorgasburg has to offer.
