From February 2nd to February 5th, 2017, Stardust VI – Dark Nights of the Soul will take place in Brooklyn, NY at Saint Vitus Bar.
Although appearing on the surface to be a conventional music festival, Stardust VI – Dark Nights of the Soul is anything but “conventional.” Presented by the Stardust NYC collective, this edition will not only feature music performances by the likes of Absu, Slagmaur, Aluk Todolo, Obliteration, Dispirit, Lluvia, Lycus, Blood Incantation, and Hail among others – 22 bands in all – but will also feature a special book presentation and lecture by acclaimed artist Metastazis.
For the past five years, Stardust NYC has endeavored to present an event for artists and art lovers. It is completely democratized from the bog-standard “copy/paste festival.” There are no headliners nor openers; every artist is considered equally amazing and important, part of a unique fabric binding together great art.
“We started the Stardust Series five years ago with the genuine intention of creating an atypical platform that will help the underground music scene in its full diversity and splendor,” the collective write. “As part of that mission, we want to deliver a high-quality curation meant to support true artistry and passion. We believe that actions always speak louder than words, and we continue on our path of celebrating unknown Greatness.”
“More than anything, we envision Dark Nights Of The Soul to be a unique and genuine event of discovery,” they continue, on the topic of the sixth installment. “We’d like to see people want to open new doors for themselves, to get out of their comfort zones and completely lose themselves in the Moment. To be utterly shaken from body to soul by something completely new is a blessing, and many times life-changing. This is the true live experience we aim for each and every time.”
