Pickled hearing at the Chelsea Music Festival

Lucky patrons of the 2015 Chelsea Music Festival featuring the music of Finland and Hungary, are not going hungry or thirsty. With Hear/Taste/See as the festival rallying cry, almost all of the concerts in this 10-day series are advertised to include (in bold italic) "reception and open bar" along with a smattering of "curated" (?) food presentations by celebrity-ish chefs. Apparently worried about those pesky two remaining senses, there was last evening the unveiling of the "2015 Chelsea Music Festival Scent by perfumer Christophe Laudamiel." No sign as yet of a touch-themed event, but perhaps things might heat up if they move the Finnish Fiddle-Off to a sauna with goulash-tasting afterwards. But I'm ONLY going if it's curated.
