According to Co-Founder Chris Jones “The Hamptons are a unique market to say the least — full of decision makers, trend setters, and taste generators who have always been eager to embrace the best and the brightest in our culture — whether that is in literature, film, fashion or music. We are excited to bring this collection of artists together in our community, and hope this is the first of many annual events.”
MTK teamed with Downtown Music and RCRDLBL (http://www.RCRDLBL.com) to Co-Produce the event. As media partner, RCRDLBL assisted in the lineup’s curation, and will supply the festival’s digital marketing component. Downtown CEO and RCRDLBL Chairman Josh Deutsch said, “Downtown and RCRDLBL are pleased to partner with the MTK team to curate such an incredible lineup featuring some of today’s most exciting and innovative artists. And we are especially excited to bring the event to such a unique and special place as the Hamptons – one of the most vibrant cultural communities in the country.
