FULL MOON FEST


Full Moon Fest is a boutique approach to a New York City music festival. A two-day beachside experience that conveys a worldly cultural sensibility with a New York swagger.




“The Sexiest Women You’d Want to Stand Next to at a Music Festival”
– GQ


After five years of expansive but careful growth, MATTE has brought the festival back to the beaches of Governors Island. Located in New York Harbor with breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the skyline, Full Moon 2016 will be transformed into one of the only beachside music festival in the region. The festival grounds will host more than 10,000 guests over two days who will enjoy curated music, an international food area with some of the city’s best culinary partners, art installations and activations all spread across the island. Full moon will run from 2pm to midnight featuring a mix of 20 emerging and established artists from around the world.

“Somewhere between dance party and music festival and reminiscent of full-moon celebrations in Thailand (but with a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline), this all-night gathering features the crème de la crème of international d.j.s and performers.”
– The New Yorker
