A heat wave may be descending on New York City, but the Pinknic music festival is returning for its fourth year to keep us cool this weekend. Set at Randall's Island Park with an oversized main stage and for the first time, an additional stage, performers including Mark Ronson and Chromeo will headline two days of Pinknic's signature "New York with a European touch" spirit.
Pinknic is an elevated music festival experience — less about getting muddy in the mosh pit and more about reclining by the pool (surrounded by cabanas available for VIP ticket holders). That refined sensibility extends to the food and wine options: ditch your plastic cup of beer for rosé by Chȃteau d'Esclans, G.H. Mumm champagne, cocktail gardens featuring concoctions from Absolut, Beefeater, Altos Tequila and Angry Orchard, and a food garden offering the likes of New York staples including Roberta's, Mission Ceviche, St. Tropez and Van Leeuwen Ice Cream.
Finish off a day in the pool sipping frosé and listening to Chromeo with a fireworks display at sunset and a ferry ride home.
