"The Hamptons is such an incredibly creative and inspiring place, and the post-summer season out here is pure magic," said Annie Balliro, Founder & CEO of uniphi good. "After a great first Festival last year, we all just knew that we had to do it again! We are so lucky to have such an incredible roster of amazing and talented friends and collaborators who will be part of these once-in-a-lifetime events... and no doubt we'll be rocking the summer good vibes through September and beyond!"

The East End Music & Arts Festival, presented by uniphi good, is back in the Hamptons for a weekend-long celebration of music, film, art, and entertainment.

The 2015 edition will debut on Friday, September 18th with a Bob Dylan and The Beatles Fine Art Show and Sale at 69 Main Street Gallery (69 Main Street, Southampton), which will also be on display on Saturday, September 19th and Sunday, September 20th. On view for the first time, the exhibit will feature hand-signed artwork by the legendary Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr.

Saturday, September 19th will kickoff with a Kids Day "Art & Astronauts" at the Community Center at the Springs Community Presbyterian Church (5 Old Stone Highway, East Hampton) from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Then it's all about the arts, starting with an in-store comic book signing with Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and music icon Darryl "DMC" McDaniels at BookHampton (41 Main Street, East Hampton) at 2 p.m., and don't miss a special performance and signing at Innersleeve Records (199 Main Street, Amagansett) at 5 p.m. featuring Grammy nominated artist Tonic, singer-songwriter Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Toby Lightman.

If you miss the Innersleeve set, don't worry because Tonic, Glen Phillips, and Toby Lightman are also performing later in the evening during a festival highlight at the Stephen Talkhouse (161 Main Street, Amagansett) on Saturday at 6 p.m. The concert will also showcase Darryl "DMC" McDaniels of Run-D.M.C. and more.

"Looking forward to talking comic books by day and playing music at night," said Darryl "DMC" McDaniels. "The East End Music & Arts Festival sponsored by uniphi good - what a great cause thanks to great people like Annie Balliro!"

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and Springs Food Pantry.

"The fact that every event will benefit a local charity or community organization is a true reflection of the good nature of all the amazing folks coming together to make this crazy idea become a reality, and all are welcome to come join us for some really good times," noted Balliro.
