Matisyahu’s Third Annual Festival Of Light In New York City Begins December 21
Published October 21, 2008

Grammy-nominated artist Matisyahu announces his Third Annual Festival Of Light shows in New York City this December. The eight-show series includes dates in Manhattan and Brooklyn for a total of four shows in each borough, featuring special guests each night, including Brett Dennen, Easy Star All-Stars, Assembly of Dust, Asher Roth, The Leevees, Little Jackie, U Melt and a special surprise DJ soon to be announced. The festival begins December 21, the first night of Chanukah, and concludes December 30. Festival of Light marks the final leg of Matisyahu’s extensive fall tour, which coincides with the release of his upcoming EP, Shattered (Epic Records, October 21). The four-song EP features tracks from his new full-length album, Light (due out in early 2009).

Previous Festival of Light shows have included special guests Tim Reynolds, Blues Traveler and The Wailers. This year Matisyahu will kick off the Third Annual Festival of Lights show at Webster Hall in Manhattan on December 21 with a very special guest DJ set. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Brett Dennen will open the final festival show on December 30 at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, playing a solo set. The Levees (featuring Adam Gardner of Guster), U-Melt, Assembly of Dust and Easy Star All-Stars performing songs from “Radiodread” and “Dub Side of the Moon” will also join Matisyahu on stage during the holiday festival.

Tickets for Festival of Light shows will be available for pre-sale on October 15 and will go on sale to the general public on October 17. Tickets may be purchased either through no fee box offices at the Mercury Lounge in Manhattan and the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn or at
