Astoria Music Now! 2014 will be AM&A’s 6th annual outdoor summer festival set to take place in Astoria Park on Sept. 6th. As in prior years, it will feature five stages hosting various types of artist from the surrounding communities. The first stage will mainly showcase theater and dance troupes, the second stage - solo acoustic and smaller acts, the third stage will be our comedy tent, and our main stage will showcase the headlining acts as well as other rock, fusion, hip-hop, funk and blues bands based in Queens. Finally, we will again this year set aside a substantial amount of space for local artists to showcase static (non-performative) and dynamic (interactive) pieces throughout the festival grounds.
