Music to Know Festival Cancelled

The Music to Know festival has been cancelled. That’s a bummer, man.

Music to Know was one of two new “vacation destination”-style festivals out in the Hamptons; the other being the new Escape to NY festival which is happening this weekend….and as it happens, has said it will honor tickets from the Music to Know Festival.

Despite a decent lineup of indie rock bands like Vampire Weekend, Bright Eyes, Matt & Kim, Cold War Kids, Tame Impala, Ra Ra Riot, etc…it wasn’t quite enough get the NY-area indie kids buying up tickets for Music to Know festival’s first year.

It’ll be interesting to see how Escape to NY ends up doing this weekend, but this is all just another example of how difficult it is to start a brand new festival.
