Brooklyn, New York -- Escape Music Festival has revealed the first round lineup for its inaugural edition taking place October 11-12. 

Placebo, Yeasayer, and Ra Ra Riot lead the initial wave of acts, and they'll be joined by The Crystal Method as well as STRFKR and Neon Indian who will perform DJ sets. You can see the full first round lineup below. 

Escape Music Festival claims to be "Brooklyn's premier Indie/Electro/Dance festival" and will feature thirty acts across two stages in addition to art installations, activities, food vendors, photo booths, and more. If this newcomer lives up to its promises and delivers in further lineup additions, Escape is shaping up to be a pretty great party come October.
