Preview Photo

Music festival lovers, mark your calendars! Saturday, August 20th and Sunday, August 21st are the official dates of the 6th annual Full Moon Festival.



Located on Governor’s Island, the 2-day beachside fest is self-described as “a boutique approach to a New York City music festival.” It takes place beneath August’s blue moon and is framed by the glittering Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty; AKA this will be the perfect opportunity to up your Instagram game. *winks* Full Moon features not only live music, but also a variety of art installations and an array of yummy culinary options. The lineup is hella rad, too, and you can check it out in full here on the festival’s website.


Some of our favorites that will be performing include SBTRKT, Pusha T, LOLAWOLF, Santigold, and Kali Uchis. Watch a few of their music videos below, grab a pal, and be sure to grab your tickets; they include the ferry fare and they're on sale now! Buy them here before they sellout!

An excessively queer Aquarius with a LOT of opinions. Things I'm passionate about include, but are not limited to: writing (duh), my pet bunnies/animals in general, LGBTQIA+ issues, Sleater-Kinney, massive helpings of spaghetti, RuPaul's Drag Race, tacky horror movies, never shutting up about astrology/how gay I am, et cetera.
