lifestyle festival.”  Here’s the official
blurb:

 

Expect the unexpected. Imagine the unimaginable.
This special event is unlike anything the east coast has experienced before
including the world’s biggest brunch at a live music festival, installation and
performance art, experimental theater, high-end camping, aka
“Glamping” and amazing culinary delights unlike any other festival
event. Escape to New York will also feature a safe children play area so
families can enjoy the festivities, shade areas to cool off in, traditional
Shinnecock arts and crafts and food, and three days/nights of some of the best
emerging artists and known heritage acts to be heard anywhere.

 

“Our goal is turn
upside down the conventional music festival experience and recreate it in a way
that makes each and every attendee walk away feeling they just had an
incredibly unexpected and amazing VIP experience from the moment they entered
our gates all the way through to when they pack up to return to their regular
lives”, said Escape to New York Executive Producer, Fred Fellowes.,
in a statement.
