About Long Play

Long Play is an annual 3-day music festival in venues all around downtown Brooklyn!

“Right now – this minute – is an amazing time to love music. Musicians and listeners from every corner of the music world are pushing beyond their boundaries, questioning their roots, searching and stretching for the new. There has never been a time when music contained so much innovation and diversity, so much audacity and so much courage. And we want to show you all of it. With the creation of LONG PLAY we are presenting more kinds of musicians, playing more kinds of music, bending more kinds of minds. LONG PLAY expands and enlarges our scope and our reach, and puts more new faces on stages than ever before. It’s a lot of music!” – Michael Gordon, David Lang & Julia Wolfe.

Dates for the 2025 festival will be announced in late 2024, stay tuned!
