Escape To New York 2011

The inaugural Escape To New York takes place August 5-7 at Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton, NY. The Hamptons-based festival was curated by Fred Fellowes, the creative director and founder of The Secret Garden Party, UK. The lineup features Patti Smith, Best Coast, the Psychedelic Furs, of Montreal, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Mates of State, Lissy Trullie, Chairlift, White Rabbits and others. We have one (1) pair of tickets to give away. As a bonus, the winner also receives stage-side access to Patti Smith, Edward Sharpe, of Montreal, and Best Coast’s sets as well as a free campsite on the grounds (they’re pretty posh). More info on the Escape:

The festival features some truly unique elements as well, aiming to be more of a Hamptons weekend getaway, than a traditional music festival. Catered by Silkstone, the festival will feature same dishes that have become staples at the group’s legendary Lower East Side restaurant, The Fat Radish. Art Installations, chosen by Winkel & Balktick will be sprinkled throughout the festival as well. There’s also a ton more going on with festival, including performance artists, luxury camping (aka. “glamping”), an intimate acoustic stage, DJs, and a speaker tent.

Looks like they’ll “also attempt to break the record for world’s largest brunch.” You’ll find additional information, including the complete lineup, at the festival website. And, in case you don’t win the tickets, you can purchase some at Ticketfly.

    If I win I hope Kevin Barnes will sit in 6 hours of traffic with me enroute to the South Fork and rent a fishing boat from Montauk for me and my buddies and the Of Montreal crew. They will be playing “Lyssergic Bliss” live on repeat until we reach South Hampton while we all get stoned and talk about life, at which point we will set anchor, hop on Barnes’ white horses, and crash the stage to rock these banana-boat-shoe wearin’, Hampton-old money-swaggin’, bringing-your-pooch-to-the-bank nonconformin’ indie rockers like they only dreamed about ever being rocked before….Barnes’ wang flapping in the ocean air throughout.
