Montauk residents and music lovers from across the state are anxiously awaiting the 10th annual Montauk Music Festival (MMF). This year, the four-day event will feature over 400 up-and-coming musical artists from a variety of genres including rock, alternative, pop, hip-hop, folk, jazz, reggae, blues, country, and more!
Our real estate agents rank MMF as one of their favorite events of the year, and once you check it out, you'll understand why. Here's everything you need to know so you and your family can get the most out of this not-to-be-missed event.
MMF kicks off on Thursday, May 16th with an opening party at The Montauk Yacht Club from 7 p.m. to midnight. For the next three days, visitors will be able to choose from a variety of free concerts at over 40 different venues throughout the city.
On Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., there will also be open-air concerts at the Montauk Lighthouse. Grab a blanket, some chairs, and your family and friends, and plan to spend the day there. There will be food, soda, and alcoholic beverages for sale as well as a variety of interesting vendors including a pop-up store for Rudy's Custom & Vintage Guitars. You'll also find a variety of workshops and exhibitions at the Ocean's Institute located at the foot of the lighthouse.
If you're an aspiring musician or are interested in getting a behind-the-scenes look into the music industry, you won't want to miss the "Ask the Experts" event on Friday, May 17th. It will be held at the Lighthouse from noon until 5 p.m. Last year's event included yoga, one-on-one mentoring sessions with the artists, an industry panel, a group listening session, and a wellness workshop. When the 2019 schedule is released, it will be updated on the MMF Ask the Experts page.
Depending on where you're coming from, your best transportation options may be the Hampton Jitney, Long Island Railroad, or the Hampton Hopper free shuttles. The Montauk Yacht Club is located at 32 Star Island Road, and the Montauk Lighthouse is located at 2000 Montauk Highway.
Although the open-air concerts are free, those going to the outdoor concerts will have to pay for museum admission. The cost for all three days is just $11 for adults, $8 for senior citizens, and $6 for children. The full admission price goes towards supporting the lighthouse, and your ticket also gives you the opportunity to tour the museum and climb to the top of the 200-year-old lighthouse.
