Hewlett folks get in gear for summer festivals

June 26, 2013 by  

Hewlett residents will be joining thousands of their fellow Long Islanders this summer, as the second Rich Rivkin’s Summer Arts Festival gets underway this weekend.

Proving a great success first time round, this festival promises to be even better than before, and will work to create a spectacular show of sound and pictures for all attending. It is a great new take on the music festival too.

Said to be designed to stimulate all of the senses, some bands will be accompanied by artists speed-painting in time with the music. There is also a great deal of audience participation, which adds yet another dimension.

Colourful posters and banners will likely be appearing soon all across Hewett to market the event, which gets under way at 11 outdoor spaces. Flyer printing will also likely be used to attract visitors, which will take place in some great LI locations, including museums and water-fronted parks.

Talking about the 2013 upcoming events, the festival’s organiser and producer, Rich Rivkin, said:

“I’m thankful for the opportunity to bring expanded mega-versions of these events to Nassau County this year, and honored to have booked some of Long Island’s most loved rock, blues, and reggae bands for this outstanding sight and sound series.”

Explaining what is special about his events, Rivkin went on to say:

“Live Painting in this charged atmosphere becomes an exciting entertainment genre, and makes for a uniquely cool vibe.”

Part of the 2013 Summer Arts Festival Series, other events Hewlett folks will be attending include the Woodstock Revival, the North Shore Blues Festival and the Jamboozi Festival. It begins this Sunday, June 30.
