Now Hear This 2017 Will be in New York City



Now Hear This Fest 2017 will be held at the Javits Center in New York City on September 8-10, 2017. There will be 25 live podcast performances headlining the second annual Now Hear This podcast festival.

Some Featured Podcasts include:

  • Comedy Bang! Bang! – Scott Aukerman and Special Guests
  • How Did This Get Made? – Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas
  • Lovett or Leave It – Jon Lovett and Friends
  • Criminal – Phoebe Judge and Lauren Spoher
  • Politically Re-Active – Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu
  • StarTalk All-Stars – Neil deGrasse Tyson
  • The Cracked Podcast – The team from Cracked.com
  • Who Charted? – Kulap Vilaysack and Howard Kremer
  • Found – Davy Rothbart

Set times for the performance schedule at Now Hear This Fest 2017 will be released at least a month before the festival. The reason for waiting is because performer’s schedules change, production requirements shift, and the Now Hear This Fest would hate to tell people a set schedule and then have to change it later.

Tickets for Now Hear This Fest 2017 are available. At the time I am writing this blog, the Super Early Bird 3 Day GA Pass is $110, and the Super Early Bird 3 Day VIP Pass is $260. Those prices are going to increase on May 29, 2017.

The Super Early Bird 3 Day GA Pass gives you general admission seating to all performances, and allows you to participate in select autograph opportunities.

The Super Early Bird 3 Day VIP Pass gives you speed-line access into all podcasts, preferred seating for main stage performances, and group meet and great photo opportunity with select talent. It also gives you access to the VIP Lounge with complimentary food and beverage service, and 2 vouchers for alcoholic beverages.
