Festival Information


Welcome to SIREN - The Village Voice's first annual summer music festival at Coney Island.

Mark your calender for Saturday, July 21, 2001 (from 12 noon - 9p.m.). This all-day, all ages multi stage, free event will be the most exciting outdoor music bazaar New York has ever seen, right smack dab in the heart of Coney Island: on 10th Street, next to the Cyclone, on the boardwalk, in the bars, and in the 10-1 Sideshow!

SIREN will feature live national and regional bands, DJ's, carnival gaming, eclectic circus troupes, cabaret acts, sideshow curiosities on two outdoor stages and indoor venues. The Coney Island boardwalk will be converted into an "artwalk" displaying works from the localand national artists, and 10th Street will be brimming with vendor booths and a gaming area!

Plus everything else that makes a day at Coney Island such an affair—the Cyclone, the Wonder Wheel, hot dogs, the beach, the boardwalk and much, much more.

A portion of the proceeds from SIREN will benefit the Coney Island Chamber of Commerce and Coney Island USA, non-profit organizations serving and preserving the Coney Island experience.
