Started in 2018, The New Colossus Festival has since established itself as the first stop in the US for many emerging international artists. Festival organizers celebrate New York City's long-standing tradition of welcoming artists and are looking forward to sharing their love of music with the community they've built over the years.

Named after Emma Lazurus's 1883 sonnet featured on The Statue of Liberty, The New Colossus Festival is a multi-day, multi-venue showcase and conference for emerging musical talent from around the world that converges on New York City's Lower East Side.
