It's only been a few weeks since the 2011 DUMBO Arts Festival, but this weekend another multidisciplinary public art, film and music festival will be taking over the neighborhood, Vice Media's The Creators Project (October 15, 16)—and it's free, if you RSVP.

Music will take place on a stage under the Manhattan Bridge Archway, at 55 Washington Street and inside the Tobacco Warehouse on Saturday, including sets by Four Tet, Company Flow, and a DJ set by Justice. On both Saturday and Sunday art installations will fill the Tobacco Warehouse, 56 Water Street, 81 Front Street, and 55 and 30 Washington Street. Screenings will happen Saturday and Sunday at Powerhouse Arena, and include Spike Jonze's short film, Scenes from the Suburbs, inspired by the Arcade Fire's most recent album.

There will also be food and drink by Brooklyn Flea and, the festival's previously announced co-presentation of that new Karen O-Adam Rapp opera Stop the Virgens at St. Ann's Warehouse. The festival's centerpiece, already rising within the walls of the Tobacco Warehouse, is a massive metallic grid by United Visual Artists that will be outfitted with lights and speakers and might look something like this:
