Full Moon Festival 2014Governors Island
New York, NY
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.
