About The Festival

Join us this summer as we voyage out to sea for an afternoon and evening of Manhattan skyline views where you’ll lose yourself in the strobe lights of the night sky, dance in a sea of party-goers and let your body and mind Get Carried Away by the boundless waves of music performed by some of the best up-and-coming bands from the greatest city in the world.

We are taking the magnificent Timeless yacht out for a spin and we are inviting you to come along for the ride.

We will be departing from Pier 36 in the Lower East Side in Manhattan, between Manhattan & Williamsburg Bridge. The Timeless boasts a 600-person capacity, four levels, four outdoor decks, three indoor decks, four fully stocked service bars, and a top level open-air promenade offering an unrivaled view of the Manhattan skyline, with a special guest appearance from Lady Liberty herself.

We’ll be partying the hardest on the bottom level where we will host the Atlantic Stage, featuring the best performances from the hottest, emerging bands in NYC.  The second level will feature the Adriatic Bazaar, where you’ll find an array of local vendors offering delicious food, refreshing drinks, cool knick-knacks, oddities, and more.

You won’t want to miss our third floor, where you’ll find yourself raging away with the bands that fought through our Battle of the Bands to play on the Pacific Stage.

On the Top Level, we have the open air Mediterranean Promenade, where you can bask in the summer sun and Get Carried Away by the warm, sea breeze.
