"This year you can expect many great DJ performances again, but we will be more focused on talent that is currently climbing the ladder to international recognition and the opening day line-up echoes that approach," said Mathew Thomas, Sound Waves @ The Beach Music Director and ConcertPass Founder.

, and a fashion presentation and appearance by designer Charlotte Ronson

, CEO of Syndicate-5 and Sound Waves @ The Beach Founder. "When we heard that Gurney's
was under new ownership with a plan to contemporize what is clearly the largest and most beautiful resort on the East End, we knew we had to bring Sound Waves to the Beach." The beachside event will showcase the top DJs and live music performers as well has high-end fashion presentations weekly.
