This past Saturday, hoards of scantily clad hipsters boarded the Governor’s Island Ferry and embarked upon Full Moon Fest. The Absolut Tunes’ sponsored event started in the afternoon and was scheduled to end around midnight, though none of the live acts seemed to have started on time, and disorganized may be a generous adjective for the event. Local DJs like Vikas Sapra and JDH & Dave P played at the Neon Gold tent, along with NYC electronic based duo The Knocks. Yuksek performed a mere DJ set on the main stage instead of a live performance, and the headliners, Miami Horror, closed the show with an energetic live show. Tanlines, Despite these highlights, the Full Moon Fest was less of a fun outdoor Summer festival, and more of an obvious money grab. After waiting in long lines to get to the ferry, get onto the ferry, and get into the island, visitors found- you guessed it- more lines on the other side of the gate. A 45 minute line to the one working ATM rewarded the patient with an $8 ATM fee. The event only had one real bar, and staffed only 4 bartenders to serve the couple thousand people on the island, resulting in huge crowds of disgruntled party goers complaining about the $13 Absolut cocktails they were about to purchase. The $50 ticket price wasn’t as steep as the tickets to Governor’s Ball or other Summer festivals, and sand in your shoes is better than paying $300 to stand in the rain all day, but the event needed more people dancing and less people standing in long lines for half hour to an hour. Despite these inconveniences, the crowd was largely attractive and well dressed, with a high female to male ratio. Perhaps if the wait for a drink was shorter, there would have been a lot more hipsters full of liquid courage on the dance floor.
