Escape Music Festival is a two-day indie rock and electronic music festival that will make its debut October 11-12 at Governors Island Beach Club in NYC and feature 30 performances over the course of both days to an audience of more than 16,000 people.
The festival’s lineup is masterfully curated by Brooklyn’s The Most Definitely and San Francisco’s Beautiful Buzzz. The Most Definitely is a dedicated advocate of indie music culture. Based out of Brooklyn, The Most Definitely is a music blog, record label and live event producer devoted to the early stage development of indie artists. Beautiful Buzzz is a new music blog and event production company based out of San Francisco, CA. Their goal is to expose up-and-coming artists who they believe are on the cutting edge of indie pop, electronic, and dance music.
Sunday’s Elrow stage is presented by Barcelona’s Elrow, a landmark institution in the Spanish and European dance scene. The stage will be transformed with Elrow’s immaculately constructed visual theme and lineup. This marks Elrow’s first excursion into the USA.
For those who have yet to experience a Burning Man type of vibe, this might be your chance.
“We are ecstatic to bring our vision of an interactive music festival to life, especially in Brooklyn, which has an artistic and energetic vibe that fits perfectly with Escape,” says Merritt Quirk, festival founder and CEO at Balearic Entertainment. “The level of musicians we have lined up along with the interactive elements are something we hope will move the audience and offer more than just a music event,” adds Quirk. “Escape is meant to be an all encompassing and inspiring experience that will leave a lasting impression and provide festival-goers a temporary ‘escape’ from everyday life.”
