About The Festival


We are excited to announce the premiere of the Hamptons Festival of the Arts! The inaugural event will take place at the Parrish Art Museum on August 13 and 14, 2016. Renée Fleming, one of the most acclaimed singers of our time, will serve as Festival Curator. She will launch the festival with a special, intimate recital in the galleries of the Parrish on August 13th, followed by a private reception.

The Festival was created through a partnership among the founders of the event: IMG Artists and Barrett Wissman, Renée Fleming, Benjamin Millepied, IFAC Handa and the Parrish Art Museum. IMG Artists and Barrett Wissman are the Executive Producers of the Festival, which will be an annual celebration of the arts that will include a wide range of performances and events including music, dance, theater and the visual arts.
