Brooklyn’s culture scene is getting its own camping-style music festival.
The “Migration Festival,” from Aug. 1-3 in upstate’s Narrowsburg, New York, will feature a talent showcase of Brooklyn musicians with attendees camping under the stars. It’s an escape from the stress of the city in a tranquil town nestled along the Delaware River.
Five acres of land have been reserved for festival goers, with additional activities ranging from group yoga sessions in the morning to silent discos all night, along with concerts, swimming, tubing and volleyball in between.
To be sure, the main focus is the music, which will be an eclectic array that includes jazz, blues, folk rock, and electronic Brooklyn house. Featured artists include the Whistleblowers, Charlie Phillips, Ben Brody of Flow State, Brandon Lopez and the Tongues, the Eitan Akman Band, Red Futon, and more.
Keeping the event authentic and with a sense of community, attendance is capped at 300 people. Tickets are still available for $100. The fee guarantees a camping spot, morning yoga classes and entrance to all musical performances. Camping gear and food are not provided, but bathrooms and showers will be available on site.
“You won’t want to miss this chance to feel the BK community vibrations and experience some incredible talent, all while relaxing in the breathtaking Catskills,” said Avi Werde, whose event production company created the event.
