New York City—Gotham itself, is about to hold the best goth and post-punk fest ever to grace the city— with the fifth annual Murder of Crows Festival.

The event returns to Brooklyn Bazaar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY for two days set for Saturday, August 31st and Sunday, September 1st.

NYC post-punk heroes Blacklist are reuniting after ten years for a special performance to celebrate their debut LP Midnight of the Century, and Italy’s Ash Code are set to perform for the first time in New York as well. Also headlining are rising stars in the post-punk, goth, and darkwave scene—Icelandic trio Kælan Mikla, who were personally chosen by Robert Smith to perform at Meltdown and The Cure’s 40th Anniversary Concert in Hyde Park, as well as the Pasadena Daydream Festival.

The Dark Market, featuring art, jewelry, and ephemera vendors from across the country also returns with 100% of the table fees going to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Plus, dance parties are set to follow the bands each night, featuring DJs and festival founders Templar, Martin Oldgoth, Patrick, Dave Bats, and more.

Tickets for A Murder of Crows Festival are on sale here, while supplies last.
