It’s officially festival season and we’re happy to announce we will be covering Full Moon Festival this year. We’ve had our eye on Full Moon Festival so we’re excited to be attending this event for our first time. In case you’re unfamiliar with Full Moon Festival, they are one of New York’s largest remaining independent music festivals at the forefront of the boutique festival trend. They’ve had some incredible talent grace their stages such as: SBTRKT, Santiogold, Pusha T, Wild Belle, and many more. Full Moon Festival was recently located at Randall’s Island in New York City, but have relocated to the Knockdown Center which is located in the heart of Brooklyn. It’s an incredible indoor and outdoor venue that has 50,000 square feet of original brick, steel, and timber.
Now the lineup isn’t boasting the big mainstream names like Beyonce and Jay-z but best believe the team at Full Moon Fest know their music and will definitely be bringing in the good vibes to kick off the summer. However, attending this festival isn’t just about listening to great music and dancing your ass off, every ticket that is sold $1 is donated to The Surfrider Foundation which is going directly to preserving our world’s oceans and beaches. Party with positive intention, we dig it.
In case you want to catch us in real life, here are some of the acts we’ll definitely be checking out. See you there!
Metronomy – I’ve literally been listening to them for 5 years and have never seen them in the city I was living in, until now. I’m super excited for their nu-disco electronica sound.
Ama Lou – Hailing from London, this 19 year old multi-talented singing prodigy will absolutely surprise you with her vocal range. You can definitely expect some sultry R&B vibes, colorful synths, and snappy drums in her set.
Sudan Archives – Violinist and vocalist, Sudan Archives writes, plays, and produces her own music. As a self taught violinist, Sudan Archives unique sound is a combination of inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers mixed with elements of R&B, and experimental electronic music.
