The Montauk Music Festival (MMF) is a volunteer-run, grassroots live music event designed to celebrate, support, and promote the thriving Montauk music scene while showcasing and stimulating the burgeoning artistic, commercial and pedestrian activity in Montauk. The festival would not be possible without the generous support by businesses and individuals, who, like the festival organizers, are dedicated to nurturing this vital component of the area’s culture. MMF is a Montauk Sun Production.
MMF is a four-day musical celebration featuring talented up-and-coming independent artists, set against the backdrop of one of the most idyllic beach communities on the east coast – Montauk, NY. Except for the Opening Party on Thursday night at the Westlake Fish House, it is a FREE event. Over 400 artists boasting a wide variety of musical styles (from alternative, rock, folk, pop, Americana, reggae, blues, jazz, bluegrass, to flamenco, hip-hop, country, and more), will be performing for free in the spirit of sharing original music -through showcases -with audiences and fellow musicians.
So make plans, grab your blanket and beach chairs, bring your family and friends, and escape to Montauk for the weekend of May 16-19. Enjoy a music-filled opening party Thursday night at the Westlake Fish House, followed by three additional days of talented Artist Showcases.
