Great Music for Free at the River to River Festival

In a city where virtually nothing is free, the River to River Festival delivers great music at no cost.  This fun NYC music festival has hosted some famous bands and artists as well as some local artists that are looking to make a name for themselves.  The River to River Festival changes location all the time, so you won't get bored going back to the same venue.  Grab some friends and enjoy some free music in Lower Manhattan this summer.
