The three-day festival from August 5-7 on the Shinnecock Reservation in Southamption, New York, was founded by Fred Fellowes, who also founded the Secret Garden Party--the popular UK festival which annually draws about 30,000 people to Grange Farm in Cambridgeshire.

Fellowes is billing Escape To New York as the state's "first pop-up destination community and independent experiential music and lifestyle festival"--kind of the Northeast's answer to Coachella, the Pitchfork Festival, Sasquatch and Bonnaroo.
