The Highline is the old elevated train track that runs up the west side from Greenwich Village through Chelsea and ends at Hudson Yards, where they wanted to build the Jets stadium several years ago.

It’s a very cool space that is being turned into an elevated park. This is a photo of it.

In May of this year (specifically May 9th to May 19th), David Bowie is hosting The Highline Festival.

As cool as that pairing is, I just found out via Brooklyn Vegan that Daniel Johnston is coming up to NYC to play the festival. Now that is cool!

Also, it appears that Arcade Fire and TV On The Radio are headlining the festival.

This is so great. I have to figure out how to get tickets now. If you have any ideas, let me know in the comments.
