Full Moon Festival 2014Governors Island (Governors Island, New York, NY) Map it $40
Full moons in New York have never quite been the same since the creative maestro's at MATTE got in the habit of throwing a finely curated Southeast Asian-inspired affair every August in the celestial body's honor. Back for a fourth turn, the swanky, bohemian, afternoon-into-evening soiree invites revelers to hop a ferry to Governors Island for live music, dancing, culinary delights, and intoxicating vibes. Spanning eight hours, the beach-side fete boasts a stellar line-up that includes The Knocks, Penguin Prison, Le Youth, The Aston Shuffle, Clapton, Spanish electro pop outfit Delorean, and more. Also in store are trippy art installations, a surf shack flavored pop-up shop, and cuisine catered by Tacombi, Brooklyn Star and An Choi. Having the fixings to send revelers into orbit, this Full Moon fest is sure to eclipse many of this summer's party offerings.

Set on Governor’s Island in New York City, Full Moon emerges as a new festival that features a diverse and discerning lineup spanning multiple genres. Taking place beneath the full moon in August, it’s notable for its fashionable, creative crowd and unusual setting as a beach festival in the massive metropolis of NYC.
Inspired by the mythical power of the full moon and the famous parties of Southeast Asia, MATTE’s Full Moon brings to light New York’s distinct culture and edge – after experiencing three years of sold out shows, Full Moon 2014 will capture the summer by hosting a beach party in the center of New York Harbor with sounds, art and food from a carefully curated lineup of musicians, DJs, artists, and chefs.
The 2014 Lineup is as follows:
The Aston Shuffle
Young & Sick
