After a brief foray into Brooklyn, the annual Bang on a Can Marathon is moving back to downtown Manhattan, where it has resided for much of its 30-year run.

The free concert will take place at the N.Y.U. Skirball Center on Washington Square Park on May 13 from noon to 10 p.m. The Bang on a Can founders, Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, will present their own compositions and serve as M.C.’s; other performers include Terry Riley and Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields.
