New York’s annual Greatest Day Ever festival has announced its return for the July 13-14 weekend, hosted right on the touristy grounds of Coney Island. Following years of numerous venue changes throughout the city core, this year’s event will take place in the Ford Amphitheater and allow room for more than 5,000 attendees over the two days.
The joint music festival and carnival will host a handful of hip-hop and trap artists over the weekend, with headliners Carnage and Zeds Dead closing out each night. Attendees can also catch performances from rap artists Pusha T and Lil Baby over the course of the weekend, and spend time between sets on the abundance of carnival rides across the board walk.
GA and VIP passes available for purchase here.
