Attendees will also enjoy visual projections by Steve Pavlovsky of Liquid Light Labs and Jesse Mannart, along with installations from artists such as:

– Babycastles: Enviro-bear – A car driving simulation running on a solar-powered tablet & Line Wobbler – A dungeon-crawler that takes place on a strip of neon and is controlled by a wobbling metal coil door stopper.
– Berk Sonmez: Active Modular Phytoremediation Wall System (AMPS) will be a vertical garden system built out of CMU bricks, using plants’ natural ability to clean air and eliminate the need for air filtration systems in buildings. 
– Peter Coffin: Untitled (Steamroller) – A giant moving music box complete with stage, multi-channel mixer and sound system out of a full sized steamroller that has been modified to generate music while it rolls on sand and leaves a musical imprint — running on zero-emission propane fuel!
– Weintraub Diaz Landscape Architects: FRUIT OF THE EARTH – Designed to shift over the course of a day, the piece begins as a column of earth punctuated with a potpourri of recycled glass fragments. A water feature powered via a solar water pump will act as the main agent of change, slowly eroding the earth as the underlying glass sculpture is revealed. 
This will be a truly unique weekend of live music, immersive art and a whole lotta fun on the camp grounds!

With excitement towards the upcoming festival, Destination Moon Co-Founder Jonah Trager explains, “After years of producing underground parties throughout NYC, we are incredibly excited to bring Destination Moon to a large-scale multi day arena. This festival will rock your pants off while demonstrating the powers of solar energy. With the best live acts in NY on a fully solar stage, immersive large scale art, swimming and camping all in a beautiful sprawling setting you cant go wrong. Destination Moon proves you can party hard with minimal effect on your environment.”
