With a line-up including OutKast, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, and Foster the People, there was something for everyone. In addition to fantastic musical acts, the festival also boasts a multitude of hip New York food, food trucks, a silent disco, photo booths and lawn games.
Founders Entertainment hired Bandit Lites to provide the lighting and rigging for two of the stages. Bandit provided Martin Mac Viper profiles, Clay Paky Sharpys, GRN LED moving washes and lamp bars, and a variety of grandMA consoles.
