MTK

According to "Music to Know"'s website, there will be "18 bands, dozens of chefs, wines, beer, retail and lifestyle brands, a premium weekend festival presenting the hottest music, fashion, lifestyle, chefs, and wines and beers to know." It also says "website under construction. stay tuned." I can't wait to know the full lineup of the August 13-15 East Hampton fest which...

"...had been planned for Amagansett, received approval for the East Hampton Airport property usage on Thursday, though they have one more hurdle to cross: an okay from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Sag Harbor residents Collage and Chris Jones, owner of the Sole East, has permission for bands and a DJ to play between noon and 10 p.m. The permit is for a total of 9,500 people over both days..."

...says the East Hampton Patch who also reveals that Dawes are confirmed on the bill so far.

MTK is not to be confused with the just-announced August 5-7 Southampton fest called Escape to New York.

The only chefs I need "to know" is the ones at Mamouns, Oasis, Moaz, and Hummus Kitchen.

Lifestyle brands! Free Rubbers!

Shouldn't the MTK festival be in Montauk, not in the Hamptons?

Looks like the ultimate "take hysterical pictures of douchebags and jerkoffs" event.

3:14 I know that, but everywhere you go in Montauk, they sell those oval stickers that just say MTK on it. It would be like having a festival in New Jersey called NYC and the NYC stands for Noisy Young Citizens.

PLEASE, all of you poseurs who plan on attending this MTK thing:

take the Hampton Jitney.

do not take LIRR. there is nothing more annoying, for we residents of both LI and NYC, than a train full of sunburned and weekendedly frustrated Williamsburg and LES hipsters. and you are finishing off whatever is left in your lukewarm cooler.

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2011 4:09 PM

um, it ain't gonna be hipsters at this event!

Quite possibly the worst fest in the world?

The design of the poster leads one to believe it'll be full of shitty dance acts.

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2011 5:41 PM

haha. it's funny 'cause the poster is black and the people there will be white.

This show was announced and actually looks pretty damn good!

On the up side I guess it's nice that someone is feeding the foncy people of the hamptons something that their trust fund won't, but fuck that.

MTK MUSIC FESTIVAL 2011 CANCELLED

(East Hampton, NY . . . August 6, 2011) The MTK: Music To Know Festival (www.musictoknow.com) planned for Saturday – Sunday, August 13 – 14, in East Hampton, New York, is cancelled. A statement is as follows:

“It is with heavy, heavy heart that we regret to inform you that the inaugural MTK: Music To Know Festival in East Hampton will not take place. Despite our unique vision and arranging a world-class line-up, ticket sales were not adequate to allow the event to continue. We wanted to let everyone know now before engaging more deeply.

Along with our ticket holders, vendors, sponsors, business associates, colleagues and friends in the community, we too are filled with deep disappointment. We pledge to endure during this difficult time with the same integrity and professionalism displayed throughout the creation of this event.

Ticket holders should check www.musictoknow.com next week for more information.

Most humbly,
MTK, Music To Know LLC”

It's a shame that you couldn't get the support.
I think maybe your patrons are not in that area of the Island,lovely as it is.
Perhaps from the random venom spit out on this site you can gather that there is a tremendous amount of territoriality in
Long Island that can not be bridged by music.
Just like our congress, we have become too selfish and partisan and bitter to join together for even an afternoon of music.
This country is doomed.
Too bad it was a great idea.
