If you weren't already stoked for this upcoming festival season, this lineup will definitely change that. Filled with Techno, Jam-Bass music, Dubstep and much much more, Elements new festival; Lakewood, has it all. Brought to us by, Bang On!NYC, which is the East Coast's favorite party crew known for throwing art filled warehouse parties. Now they are throwing an entire three day festival in NorthEast, PA. Yeah, we're as excited as you.
I attended Bang On! NYC's day long festival, Elements, this past August and it was easily my favorite day festival of the season. The art demonstrations were phenomenal, there were fire-hoopers, sword swallowers, interactive acting and fortune telling performances, and live painting. There were refurbished buses where you and your squad could escape from the heat and lay on the soft carpets. There were stages that represented each element and featured artists from varying genres. All of this was happening at an abandoned warehouse property in the middle of Brooklyn. Truthfully, my money has never been more well spent on a day festival. Don't believe me? See what one of our other writers David had to say about it.
So when Elements blessed us with this special announcement just last week, it took all that was in me not to just buy my pass right then and there. This lineup is very diverse in the genres represented, which is phenomenal for festival outreach to attract a mixed crowd of festival goers. We'll have our tech-heads, dedicated to artists such as Claude Vonstroke and Walker & Royce. Our bass fans there for trap/dubstep hyrbid artist giant Herobust and live trap phenoms Keys N Krates. We'll even have a more non-conventional EDM crowd for trip hop producer Tipper. Clearly, this festival has a lot to offer to every kind of electronic listener.
The festival is set to take place Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28. There's no better way to kickoff your festival season then traveling to Lakewood PA for some funky, heavy and out of this world beats. For tickets visit here.
