With excitement towards the upcoming festival, Destination Moon Co-Founder Jonah Trager explains, "After years of producing underground parties throughout NYC, we are incredibly excited to bring Destination Moon to a large-scale multi day arena. This festival will rock your pants off while demonstrating the powers of solar energy. With the best live acts in NY on a fully solar stage, immersive large scale art, swimming and camping all in a beautiful sprawling setting you cant go wrong. Destination Moon proves you can party hard with minimal effect on your environment."
Destination Moon Music & Arts Festival is offering full weekend passes with camping included, along with parking passes ($20) or round trip shuttle service ($15) from Brooklyn, NY. Alternatively, attendees can purchase and reserve an individual bunk bed ($20) in a shared cabin, 8-person cabins ($125) or 10-person cabins ($150) for lodging through the weekend. Trough Catering will provide healthy, hearty and exciting meals, with options available for all kinds of dietary restrictions, at low cost for festivalgoers. There will also be snacks available at the canteen for late-night bites.
In addition to live performances throughout the weekend, attendees will experience immersive art installations all around the campgrounds that amplify Destination Moon's focus on sustainability. Curator of Art Installations Jonah Levy explains, "There are so many festival-goers out there who want to see how an alternative energy powered festival with Brooklyn-based arts and live music works. And there's definitely gonna be a WOW factor. From earthen sculptures that transform to reveal new elements throughout the day, to motion-sensored installations that pop out of the ground to an indie video arcade in the middle of a forest, I'm positive that people will be looking at the festival experience in a different light after Destination Moon 2016."
