The festival is 100% happening, rain or shine. We are expecting rain on Friday so come prepared with umbrellas, rain coats, ponchos, proper footwear and extra dry clothes.
The box office, located at the entrance to the festival at the Harlem River Event Area on Randall’s Island, will be open for will call pick up and ticket purchases (if still available) from 11:00am until 10pm on Friday June 7th, Saturday June 8th and Sunday June 9th.
Don’t litter! There will be waste reclamation stations located throughout the site for waste, compostables and recyclables. Be sure to drink plenty of water, as Dancing + NYC summer heat = lots of sweating. Please keep all valuables with you at all times. There will be a Lost & Found available at the general information tent, which will be close to the entrance. For your safety, absolutely no weapons or illegal substances will be permitted. Be kind to one another, pace yourselves, and feel free to give a random stranger a high five.
There will be no refunds. Festival is Rain or Shine. Artists subject to change.
3 day ticket holders will be allowed to enter and exit the venue once each day. As such, there is no re-entry each day of the festival. Camping on-site at the festival is not allowed.

We are putting a big emphasis on food and drink this year, and we are working with local food trucks, restaurants, caterers, and vendors to provide top notch food, drink, and deliciousness for all. A partial list of food vendors can be seen on our Food page, and additional vendors will be added and announced in the coming weeks, along with specific food items each vendor will be serving. A variety of beverages (including beer, wine, and non-alcoholic) will be served all over the festival grounds, and there will be enclosed Liquor Lounges in both the General and VIP areas, for those of you who prefer the sauce.
There will be a number of ATMs on the festival grounds.
