    Billboard reports that UK festival organizer Fred Fellowes will test the New York market with a three-day lifestyle event in August modeled after his Secret Garden Party in England.

    The inaugural "Escape to New York" festival will be held August 5th through August 7th on the Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton, New York. The initial lineup includes Best Coast, White Rabbits and the Vaccines, so it's indie rock heavy and a great event to look forward to at the end of summer. The rest of the line up will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

    "We're not coming out guns blazing with a huge mega-list of an event, by any means," said Fellowes, whose summertime Secret Garden Party draws about 30,000 people to Grange Farm in Cambridgeshire per year. "We are trying to start with a modest grass-roots type of approach with about 5,000 people and slowly grow it from there," Fellowes said.

    Does the "Escape to New York" festival sound like something you'd like to attend?
