NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 28, 2014) - Escape Music Festival, a highly anticipated live electronic and indie rock music festival, is proud to announce its first interactive concert experience October 11 - 12 at Pier 9 in Brooklyn, N.Y. The festival plans to showcase 30 performances and attract a crowd of more than 16,000 people over the course of two days. Featured artists include Placebo and Yeasayer, along with Ra Ra Riot, Bakermat, ASTR, Tesla Boy, Basecamp and Follow Me, as well as DJ sets by The Crystal Method, Neon Indian and STRFKR. 

"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 we think will match well with Escape," says Merritt Quirk, festival founder and managing director at Balearic Entertainment.

Escape Music Festival will also host North America's first El Row performances from resident DJs Oscar Aguilera, Marc Maya and more. Coming off its extremely successful summer residency at Space in Ibiza, Spain, the experience-based performances will combine top-notch underground talent along with interactive art, roaming theatrical performers, and a fully immersive state-of-the-art production design.

"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."

The full lineup, along with more information about the interactive elements, will be released over the next few weeks leading up to Escape Music Festival.
