BAM Next Wave Festival Summary

Event Overview: A truly NYC event in Brooklyn, the BAM Next Wave Festival is a collection of avant-garde performances at the famous Brooklyn Academy of Music. The Bam Fest Brooklyn features progressive concerts, dance performances, commissioned theatrical performances and symphonies, and even NYC opera.

What to Expect: The BAM Next Wave Festival isn't your typical NYC music festival. Featuring a series of nearly 20 events spread over almost three months, the Bam Music Festival has commissioned some of the most interesting live performances in NYC avant-garde history.

  • Unique Performances: Past performances at the BAM Next Wave Festival have included a symphony on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (The BQE) by the artist Sufjan Stevens, a tribute to Bayou music called "Red Hot + New Orleans," and a number of panel discussions from NYC area artists.
  • Historic Theater: Perhaps the coolest part of attending the Bam Fest Brooklyn is getting a chance to experience the historic Brooklyn Academy of Music Theater. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the BAM Theater was originally built in 1907 and still features amazing acoustics.

Inside Knowledge: If there isn't a particular performance at the BAM Next Wave Festival that strikes your fancy, we still recommend checking out the Brooklyn Academy of Music Theater in Fort Greene NYC. The BAM regularly features film screenings of some of the newest and most critically-acclaimed indie movies in NYC, and the unique theater atmosphere makes a screening at the BAM Next Wave Festival unlike any other movie experience you've ever had.
