Burning Kouch will be held July 15-16-17 on a private 90-acre farm in Orient, NY. Many live bands will share their music with us. The farm is located next to an inlet for easy access to the ocean. Just down the road is a beach park for your weekend beach outing needs, with lots o' sand, showers, and even food concessions. The farm is located in wine country with many vineyards and wineries within a short drive available for you to visit.
On the property, we will provide ample grounds for camping, for grilling, for enjoying the live music shows, for creating expressive art, for sports and activities (such as soccer, volleyball, lawn darts, water slides, sprinklers, water gun fights, etc). Let us know what other fun activities we can have. Feel free to bring and share with others.
This event is being held free of charge. Each person attending is expected to contribute with their time and communal spirit. Please help others to have a great time. Please clean up after yourself. Please offer rides to others.
Let's make the first annual Burning Kouch a regular annual thing. That will happen by you showing up and having a great time, and by respecting others and the grounds. See you there.
Tickets are free and will will be available first-come first-serve.

From Connecticut, Massachussetts, and other points north: Take train, bus or drive to New London. Take the Orient Point Ferry from New London. The ferry stop is just up the road from the farm.
From LI: drive or take LIRR to Greenport (the closest train stop) From there you need to take a taxi or get a ride to the farm.
From Airport(s): From Islip Airport, there is a $5 shuttle to the Ronkonkoma LIRR station. From JFK take AirTrain to Jamaica Station (LIRR) or taxi to Hamptons Jitney Airport Connections stop. From LGA take taxi to Hamptons Jitney Airport Connections stop. From EWR take NJ Transit train to Penn Station New York and switch to LIRR or take the Newark Airport bus to Grand Central and take the Hamptons Jitney bus from a nearby stop (44th & 3rd Ave).
Hamptons Jitney has the most convenient (goes right to the destination) and most abundant public transportation to Orient. LIRR is better at getting through weekend traffic, but has a very limited schedule (and only goes to Greenport). Helps to reserve in advance, as going out to the beach on weekends is very popular in the city during the summer. If you can offer to car pool, and if you need to a ride.
