Escape Music Festival Hosts Inaugural Year in Brooklyn, October 11th-12th
If you’re like me, you’re already depressed festival season is over - but wait - there’s still one left. And it’s huge. Escape Music Festival is holding its inaugural year in Red Hook, Brooklyn this October 11th & 12th. Booking huge names like Girl Talk, Moby DJ Set, Placebo, Yeasayer, Mayer Hawthorne, The Joy Formidable, Ra Ra Riot, The Crystal Method, STRFKR, Moon Boots and many more, Escape Festival is sure to be the biggest thing this fall season.
Excitingly, the legendary Elrow Ibiza - a landmark institution in the Spanish and European dance scene, will host one of Escape Festival’s two stages. From Elrow's weekly residency at Space Ibiza to their legendary after-hours parties presented by Elrow in Barcelona, Madrid, and more, Elrow combines top-notch underground talent with interactive art, roaming theatrical performers, and a fully immersive production design. Named the Best Party at the 2012 and 2014 Vicious Awards, Escape Music Festival marks Elrow's first venture into the United States where their stage will feature Alan Fitzpatrick, Boris, Miss Kittin, Sebastien Leger, and more.
The festival will provide several different transportation options to get out to Pier 9 in Brooklyn. From Manhattan, patrons can take ferries from South Street Seaport's Pier 11 directly to the venue. Uber will also be hosting a dedicated pick up spot at Imlay and Summit Street.
