    Blog: Intro To Escape To New York

    This weekend, The Statesman will be covering Escape to New York, a music and lifestyle festival to be held on the Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton, New York. Ticket prices range from $100 (for a one-day pass) to $2250 (for a deluxe ‘glamping’ — glamorous camping — experience). The festival offers three days of music with 7 bands playing each day, including headliners Patti Smith, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Of Montreal, as well as acoustic stages and DJ sets.

    Based off of The Secret Garden Party, an independent arts and music festival in the UK, Escape to New York is not just a music festival; it is also a lifestyle festival, with food curated by Silkstone — owners of The Fat Radish on the Lower East Side and Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk. Food curation will feature local ingredients, drinks from Best Beverages and an attempt at earning the world record for largest brunch on Sunday.

    The wonderful bourgie atmosphere of the Hamptons shines through in all aspects of this event, from the ‘glamping’ to the world-record brunch.  Make sure to check in throughout the week to read about the artists, and then this weekend to see photos, interviews and more, straight from Southampton.
