Fans flock to Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue as 3

The Great South Bay Music Festival in Patchogue headed to its conclusion Sunday, on track to break attendance records and marked by crowds of eager toddlers and just a few drops of rain.

But the drizzle did not stop parents and toddlers from packing a village park hosting the three-day festival.

Festival producer Jim Faith said he expected the 8-year-old event to set attendance highs, predicting 15,000 concertgoers for the three-day period, up from an average range of 9,000 to 11,000. Booking performer Laurie Berkner represented the festival's biggest investment in children's entertainment.

'We wanted it to be more about families,' Faith said.

The event bills itself as a multigenerational draw, with acts such as BB King and popular '90s band Taking Back Sunday.

Faith said organizers, overwhelmed by demand, had to add more VIP seats for Berkner's band.

Faith said he did not know whether pre-noon rain affected the festival. By early afternoon, the sun was out and a breeze was noticeable as boats traveled the Great South Bay.

'Whoever we lost this morning we probably got them back today,' Faith said. 'They know this is the best place to be. You've got the southerly winds and a great breeze.'

Children and their parents swayed to the lyrical musings of Berkner, which dealt with ice cream, bumblebees, and fireflies.

Marcus DaSilva, 44, of Eastport, was back for more after attending Saturday with his wife. Sunday, he came with their two kids, and a cabal of friends.

'Today is a hot day,' he said, referring to the various acts. BB King is scheduled for Sunday evening, and DaSilva, securing pirate paraphernalia for his kids, said he may need to hire a babysitter for that part of the concert.

King is among the high-profile entertainers Faith has booked over the years. The Doobie Brothers performed last year.

This year's event is vastly different from the inaugural festival, which contained about 30 acts. This event boasts more than 55, a third of which are headliners, Faith said.

'I like to bring legends,' Faith said. But he cautioned, 'We never want to be a folk festival or blues festival. It's just about great music.'

Pemberton Music Festival Death: Police Investigate Suspicious Case

Homicide investigators are probing a 'suspicious death' at a campground of the Pemberton Music Festival on Friday night.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) released few details other than to say it was early in the investigation.

Paula Baker, an online producer for Global News, tweeted that someone badly injured in a washroom had died.

Person badly injured in washroom at #pemberton music festival dies. Police have campgrounds and washrooms roped off. More to come.

Various photos posted on Twitter show yellow crime tape around some porta-potties located close to several tents.

A short statement from festival organizers, HUKA Entertainment, confirmed that 'an incident has occurred in one of the festival campgrounds.' It said it was working with Pemberton Fire Rescue to help campers who have to be relocated during the police investigation.

There was no mention of the incident on the festival's official Twitter account as it continued to live tweet the uninterrupted performance of Friday night headliners' Nine Inch Nails.

.@Pemberton_Fest hasn't commented if there has been an arrest or not yet at the festival, most of the crowd is apparently unaware of death

Oh boy @Pemberton_Fest has some terrible PR. Maybe don't retweet that a band is 'killin it' with a murder investigation going on.

This weekend's Pemberton Music Festival was resurrected after a seven-year hiatus. The first event in 2008 was poorly organized when 40,000 people squeezed into a town of 2,400 people. Visitors trampled private property and even set up tents in people's front yards without permission, while porta-potties were putrid.

A new promoter took over this year's concert and pumped $18 million worth of infrastructure into the region, hoping to avoid the traffic and other organizational problems of the past.

Snoop Dogg and Deadmau5 take the stage on Saturday, while Outkast and Frank Ocean are slated to perform on Sunday.
