More About MTK: Music To Know Festival

Founded by Chris Jones, owner of Sole East Hotel in Montauk, and screenwriter Bill Collage, MTK presented by Bing delivers two days of cross generational music and presents 18 of today’s best and brightest bands plus fashion, lifestyle, chefs, wines and beers to know. MTK represents great music – this is Music To Know.

According to Co-Founder Chris Jones “The Hamptons are a unique market to say the least — full of decision makers, trend setters, and taste generators who have always been eager to embrace the best and the brightest in our culture — whether that is in literature, film, fashion or music. We are excited to bring this collection of artists together in our community, and hope this is the first of many annual events.”

To support the local community hosting the festival, MTK has pledged to give $100,000 to East Hampton-based charities payable prior to the festival to ensure the recipients receive the funding. Charities will also be being given space on the sight to promote themselves, encourage further donations and to get people involved. The list of charities to receive the money will be announced in the coming weeks.

Exclusive media partners are Hamptons Magazine and WEHM 92.9/96.9 Progressive Radio for Long Island.
