BP Fallon & Aaron Lee Tasjan are set to make their US festival debut when they share the bill with The Patti Smith Group at the Escape To New York festival on August 5th.
From the creators of UK’s spectacular bijou festival The Secret Garden Party – the UK’s most radical and expressive event – the three-day Escape To New York festival will take place on the Shinnecock Indian reservation adjacent to the Long Island town of Southampton, NY.
Coming to US shores for the first time, it is the first pop-up destination community and independent experiential music and lifestyle festival – and interactive performance party – to take place on Shinnecock Nation land.
Expect the unexpected. Imagine the unimaginable. This special event is unlike anything America’s East Coast has experienced before.
“Our goal is turn upside down the conventional music festival experience and recreate it” says Secret Garden Party founder Fred Fellowes.
Escape To New York: the pre-vibe
Adds Head Gardener Fred Fellowes “With his vast rock’n’roll experiences now finally flowing out in his own music, BP Fallon is one of the most captivating new artists to emerge in ages”.
The double-dynamite duo of BPF & ALT are billed to play acoustically – but anything can happen!
