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.”
As media partner, RCRDLBL assisted in the lineup’s curation, and will supply the festival’s digital marketing component.Downtown CEO and RCRDLBL Chairman Josh Deutsch said, “Downtown and RCRDLBL
are pleased to partner with the MTK team to curate such an incredible lineup featuring some of today’s most
exciting and innovative artists. And we are especially excited to bring the event to such a unique and special
place as the Hamptons – one of the most vibrant cultural communities in the country.
Several retail/lifestyle pop-up shops will be announced in the coming weeks.
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.
