WOW. Did that just happen? We are so honored and humbled by the turnout and the success of this past weekend that we wanted to take a moment and thank each and every individual that came out and braved the elements to dance with us. The weather may not have cooperated in the beginning but there was no stopping the good vibes and sunshine from everyone who came out. We want to thank the artists, the staff, the venue and most importantly the fans that came out to be a part of the first inaugural Escape Music Festival. It would not have been possible without all of you. You all were a part of something special, the beginning of what we hope is a new era for all of us. We cannot thank you enough for taking time out of your lives and spending it on that little island off of New York City with us. We hope to see you all again very soon. In the meantime, here are some of our favorite pictures of the weekend to recap the magic. See you soon!

Elrow Ibiza Comes to NYC!
The craziest party in Ibiza is making its way across the Atlantic to NYC, just for Escape Music Festival. Elrow Ibiza is hosting a stage Sunday, October 12!
The story of Elrow began off a dusty highway 14 kilometers outside of Barcelona, first as a Spanish “after-hours”.
The legendary daytime parties of Elrow grew in spectacle and stature, word spreading through the cafes, dance halls, and underground scene of the European capitals. They would arrive on Sunday morning from London, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris taking a cab direct from Barcelona’s airport to Elrow, all for just one more taste of the greatest party that ever lived.
Elrow is now an institution for underground dance music in Spain and Europe, having grown to takeover Saturday nights at Space Ibiza.
Explosive energy with dramatic effects in a carnivalesque style that melts show, performance and crowd participation, Elrow will be the party of the year in Brookyn.
