The New Colossus announces new names to the massive NYC festival, including Aussies Shady Nasty, Ali Barter and Wolfjay

Over the last few weeks, The New Colossus Festival in New York has announced a slew of new names set to play its showcase festival, hailing from all over the world. Some names, like A Place to Bury Strangers you’ll likely be familiar with, while others – hailing all the way from Brooklyn to Hamburg, Melbourne (like Wolfjay – pictured above), Paris and back again – are acts making their US debut at this event, and are names you’re unlikely to know. And that’s exactly what the festival is all about – discovery of the next big thing.

In addition to Wolfjay, Ali Barter and Shady Nasty are the other Australians set to play the event – joining Tia Gostelow from the first announcement (which you can read HERE).

Wolfjay has a few shows in Australia before they jet off – including a free show in Sydney as part of the Courtyard Sessions’ Mardi Gras program on Sunday 23rd February – and is currently raising funds for the opportunity to play the festival through this Pozible campaign.
