Music Festival Curses

New, 1 comment

It's been a rough couple of days for Hamptons music festivals. First the MTK Festival was cancelled because not enough people wanted to go. Then, yesterday, the third and final day of the Escape to New York music festival was cut short because the Shinnecock Indians were "concerned about the safety of attendees and staff, and potential damage to tribal powwow grounds." Saturday night's rains caused flash flooding and some power outages on the reservation, so the organizers said that "out of respect for our gracious hosts, the Shinnecock Nation, we made this difficult but necessary decision [to cancel Sunday's concerts] per their request." Single-day ticket holders can get a refund from wherever they bought them and those with weekend passes are being told to check the Escape 2 NY website for details later this week. [27 East]
