Palm Tree Music Festival is looking for a new venue in the Hamptons

|

The 2024 Palm Tree Music Festival is a no-go at Westhampton’s Francis S. Gabreski Airport, Greater Long Island has learned.

A trusted source told GLI that the event organizers of the popular music festival are scrambling to find a last-minute venue replacement in the Hamptons after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) denied permission to hold the event at the active airport.

GLI’s source said the festival organizers are looking at areas in and close to the Hamptons, including farmland on County Road 111 in Manorville by the Stargazer sculpture.

In a Newsday report, Evelyn Martinez, a manager for the FAA’s New York Airports District Office, released the following statement regarding the denied request at Gabreski:

“Holding this event elsewhere will secure the safety of the flying public and protect concertgoers who may intentionally or unintentionally enter an active movement area.”

The Palm Tree Music Festival appealed the FAA’s decision, but it was denied, according to 27east.com.

The Palm Tree Music Festival, which is also slated for Lake Tahoe, Nevada, in July, began hosting shows at Gabreski Airport in 2021. This year’s headliner is Swedish House Mafia, together with the show’s creator Kygo.

Tickets for this year’s Hamptons show are still being offered online, with prices starting from $199 (plus fees).
