In the pool of life, we are meant to jump in, take part, dance, play and be.

Let yourself be drawn into the deep end by the wonder of all that is dizzyingly playful, inspirational and downright goofy with an Escape to New York — a music and arts festival taking place on the Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton that is the ultimate adult swim.

Dive in to this three-day celebration — a whirlwind of dynamic performances, experimental theatre, live music with scream-worthy headliners and titillating culinary delights.

Your high-end Teepee Tent glamping (read: glam camping) accommodations for you and three friends ($2,310) includes one four-person teepee, four weekend festival passes, deluxe food delivery (breakfast, lunch and all beverages) for your group and two on-site parking passes.

Over three days, you will enjoy free shuttle service to and from the festival; exclusive toilets and showers; and innovative, sustainable cuisine (hardly the typical, ho-hum festival food) curated by Silkstone NYC, including divine dishes from such restaurants as Pulqueria and Luke's Lobster (try the hearty seafood roll). Also on tap? Complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and makeovers and massages upon request.

Once you have sufficiently sipped and savoured, immerse yourself in the festival, featuring such musical luminaries as Patti Smith, Best Coast, The Vaccines and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. Take time to explore the grounds and marvel at the art installations, expertly curated by Winkel & Balktick.

Bring your appetite: you can also take part in the festival's effort to break the record for world's largest brunch, and participate in shows by Guerilla Science and Dave Carmel and his Neurological Wonders.
