Escape Music Festival Changes Location

posted by Dan Murphy on September 29, 2014

New York City -- It was announced today Escape Music Festival has relocated its inaugural event from Brooklyn's Pier 9 to Governors Island Beach Club

This is a pretty big upgrade for the first-year festival, as the change will allow for a later curfew and bigger stages for acts hitting the festival like Moby, Girl Talk, Placebo, and Yeasayer. While it's pretty late in the game for a venue swap, Escape will provide free ferry rides to and from the island and promises to reimburse all who already purchased ferry passes. 

Escape Festival will take place October 11-12 and tickets are currently on-sale with two-day passes available for $109. For more information on the new location, check out our Governors Island feature article from earlier this year.
