What’s said to be one of the UK’s most eccentric and celebrated festivals, The Secret Garden Party UK, is bringing the first ESCAPE TO NEW YORK, a music and lifestyle festival, to Shinnecock Nation tribal land, adjacent to the tony Long Island town of Southampton for the first time this summer, August 5th through 7th, 2011.

“Glamping”, a high-end nod to camping, will be part of the fun at this unique performance-based, experimental theater, music and culinary festival which Executive Producer Fred Fellowes says will hold “to a principled manifesto of social values and the power of community… not an event designed to maximize profit or TV ratings.” In other words, this is no Glastonbury or Coachella. Fine food, social values, cutting edge music, theater and art? This will have to be experienced to be believed!

Tickets go on sale today, April 26, 2011. The talent line up will be announced within the next few weeks.  www.escape2ny.com

Escape to New York partners include: Secret Productions, Sidewalk 7,  Cake Group, Scott Ideas, Dave Lory Productions, Workman Entertainment, Serious Business PR & Silkstone NYC.
