Escape to NY

The new Escape to New York festival is happening Southampton, NY this weekend. As mentioned, the music lineup features artists such as Patti Smith, Best Coast, Mates ot State, Psychedelic Furs, The Vaccines, of Montreal, and others. There will also be an acoustic stage with sets by Savoir Adore, Dead Leaf Echo, and many others we aren't too familiar with, and a dance tent, and a "dance off area" with sets by VHS or Beta (Live), Andy Rourke (of The Smiths), Alex English, Mister Saturday Night, "DJ Scotto of NASA", Rich Medina, and many others (also a lot of unfamiliar names). Tickets are still on sale and include weekend pass and camping options.

Escape to New York is not to be confused with Music To Know Fest which is in East Hampton one weekend later.

For the Psychedelic Furs, the Sothampton festival appearance is one of two upcoming NY shows. The other is at Irving Plaza with Tom Tom Club.

Rich Medina DJs in the Main Dance Tent at Escape to New York on Sunday. He has also been added as the opener to the BrooklynVegan-presented Little Dragon show happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Tuesday, August 16th. The show is sold out, though tickets are on sale for Little Dragon's upcoming show at Terminal 5. Meanwhile catch Rich at Le Poisson Rounge TONIGHT (8/3).

Best Coast, who play Escape to New York on Friday night, have a new Drew Barrymore-directed video which you can watch below...

I bought Early Bird tickets for 2 days at Newport Folk Festival for less than 100 bucks each. Not 100 bucks per day, 100 total for the two days. The lineup was fantastic. It was well organized. The scenery was amazing. The bus situation from the parking fields was really smooth. $275 per ticket for just a handful of bands in an empty field by the side of rt. 27 with cars going by? I saw the grounds yesterday. It looked like crap. when are they going to announce the headliners? Because from this lineup it looks like they haven't announced one yet.

i know for a fact that this is a disaster ticket-wise...what a crap lineup.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2011 3:40 PM

what are the chances this will be canceled on thursday?

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2011 4:08 PM

I'll go, but not until they drop the one day ticket prices to $50 tomorrow. Suckers who paid $100 will suffer, but the show might go on...

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2011 5:38 PM

Even better - website now says $30 after 5pm.

say what you want about festivals but i've still enjoyed some of the best weekends of my life at them. each of the 6 years i went to coachella i loved it. but the festival that showed me what festivals have the potential of being was ATP New York last year...everything about it was perfect.

They're honestly charging as much for a ticket to this event as they do for a Bonnaroo or Coachella ticket? Lulz.

Posted by J-Man | August 6, 2011 6:55 PM

When exactly did "laugh out loud" become "lulz"?
