Vampire Weekend, Bright Eyes head inaugural MTK Festival

on May 10, 2011, 3:33pm

The United States East coast and multi-day music events don’t have the best history together. Just ask All Points West… or Vineland… or M.I.A.. But this August, the MTK Festival will look to change that with an inaugural billed topped by indie heavyweights Vampire Weekend and Bright Eyes.

Set for August 13-14 in East Hampton, New York, the festival — known properly as the Music to Know Festival — will also feature Matt & Kim, Cold War Kids, Chromeo, Tame Impala, M. Ward, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Dawes.

Rounding out the bill are Ra Ra Riot, Tom Tom Club, We Are Scientists, The Limousines, The Naked and Famous, Francis and the Lights, Suddyn, Nicos Gun, and Young Empires.

Two-day passes go on sale Tuesday, May 10th to the general public for $195. Two Day VIP passes can be purchased for $645. Visit the festival’s website for more information.
