As you’ve probably heard, next weekend’s Escape Music Festival has left Red Hook and sought refuge on the welcoming shores of Governors Island. While we’re a little bummed we’ll have to go to a whole different island to get there, we believe once a Brooklyn festival, always a Brooklyn festival, which is why we’re sending a very lucky email subscriber (and their very lucky friend) to Escape Music Festival with a pair of two-day VIP passes that would normally run you $259 each. We hope you also read that in Oprah’s voice.
These passes won’t just get you dancing to Girl Talk, Moby, Yeasayer, Placebo, The Joy Formidable, Mayer Hawthorne, Ra Ra Riot, STRFKR Neon Indian and a bunch of other huge acts. You’ll also get access to a separate VIP entrance, VIP viewing areas at each stage, furnished, covered VIP lounges at each stage, and a cash bar with beer, wine, special fancy cocktails, and spirits (general ticket holders can only buy spirits in limited areas). Most impressively though, you get separate bathroom facilities.
These passes are worth over $500 together but you can get them without paying a cent just by signing up for our free weekly email, which you should be getting anyway since they’re loaded with the best stories from the week and tips on how to make the most of your weekends.
Make sure you’re subscribed to our weekly email so you can enter when we send it out tomorrow. We’ll notify our winner by Monday so you have time to perfect your non-VIP scoff.
