"With two stages, we're very selective about our line-up,” Seth Hurwitz, head of Festival producers I.M.P., said. “ It's all about quality over quantity, the flow of the event and how the bands overlap. With the limited slots available we have to keep it A-list talent from top to bottom."

The two-day music festival will also feature a broad selection of vendors and exhibitors as well as interactive art installations, performance art and other things. — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
