More than 100 artists performing a variety of musical styles—from alternative rock, folk, pop, Americana and reggae to blues, jazz and bluegrass—come together in the spirit of sharing original music.
Many of these performances are family-friendly, and children are encouraged to attend. Meet the Musicians at the opening night party Thursday at Gurney’s Inn, starting at 8 p.m.
A $35 donation includes a 3-hour open bar and hors d’oeuvres, along with seven bands playing. Performances will be spread throughout the town, set in different intimate venues, each with its own flavor, including a 2-day showcase stage set on downtown Montauk’s Village Green.
A schedule of the concerts can be found at www.themontaukmusicfestival.com. The festival runs Thursday, May 17-Sunday, May 20.
