Patti Smith, The Postelles, The Psychedelic Furs and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are among the artists booked for the first-ever Escape to New York festival, taking place Aug. 5-7 on the Shinnecock Reservation near Southampton, N.Y.

In addition to music, Escape to New York will offer installation and performance art, experimental theater and high-end camping.

“Our goal is turn upside down the conventional music festival experience and re-create it in a way that makes each and every attendee walk away feeling they just had an incredibly unexpected and amazing VIP experience from the moment they entered our gates all the way through to when they pack up to return to their regular lives,” said Escape to New York executive producer Fred Fellowes in a May 11 press release.
