A CURATED EVENING OF LIVE MUSIC AND PERFORMANCE VIGNETTES AMIDST THE CANDLELIT LANDSCAPE OF BROOKLYN’S LANDMARK GREEN-WOOD CEMETERY
Back by popular demand! Atlas Obscura, “the definitive guide to the wondrous and curious places worldwide” and historic Green-Wood Cemetery present Into the Veil, an evening of exploration and discovery, featuring dozens live performances – some small and intimate and others, bold and grand. Many are brand new for the 2017 event. Attendees receive a specially designed map and menu of performance venues, including nineteenth-century mausoleums, hillsides, and glacial ponds. Each journey is unique. Visitors wander at their own pace and inclination throughout the historic grounds. Winding pathways lead past majestic trees, historic gravestones, and beautifully sculpted memorials. A climactic performance at the end of the night unites everyone for a spectacular sendoff.
VIP EXPERIENCE: Go even deeper Into the Veil! VIP ticket holders are personally greeted and ferried away to an exclusive secluded venue within the cemetery for a series of magical and mysterious experiences. Limited to 150 participants. VIP ticket includes complimentary refreshments for the duration of the pre-party.
