Princeton, NJ – The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) will host Four on the Floor, Princeton’s inaugural alternative rock festival, on Saturday, October 14. From 6:15-10pm, local alt-rock bands will take the stage to provide 3+ hours of live music in the Arts Council’s parking lot pop-up venue.
Named for the “Four-on-the-Floor” beat – a dance-friendly rhythmic pattern that has influenced many different genres of music, from jazz and disco to rock and metal – the festival will feature performances by local acts
Fabian Barona, Gooney, Naked Hugs, and headliner Cherry Blossoms.
What makes Four on the Floor truly unique is that it was conceptualized, booked, and coordinated by the performing musicians to give back to their creative community and support the ACP. Jedd Lopez, co-organizer
and drummer for Cherry Blossoms, shares “The goal of Four on the Floor is to not only bring more live music to
Princeton, but to showcase and bring awareness to our amazing Arts Council. Not only will you get to listen to
great music all night, but we’ll have sign-ups for bands to participate in future events to continue spreading the
100% of all ticket sales will go towards funding future Arts Council events and programs. “The long-
term goal is to host this event every year”, continues Lopez, “and we will need the public’s help and support to
kickstart this inaugural event.
