Elements Brooklyn Phase 1 Lineup is Out and – SURPRISE – It’s Incredible
Elements Brooklyn just released their lineup and the good people at BangOn!NYC have done it again. If you’ve been a Mix reader for awhile, you may have read my recap of last summer’s event, which was my favorite NYC event of 2016 despite the fact that it was nearly 100 degrees. I have been looking forward to Elements 2017 ever since last year’s event was over, and let’s be real – I’m already looking forward to 2018’s event. And 2019. And so on.
Elements is seeing quite the expansion for this year. The biggest announcement was the introduction of Elements Lakewood, a 3-day camping festival taking place over Memorial Day weekend. The original Elements event in Brooklyn is also being expanded from one day to two, and will take place on August 12-13. Though the location is currently billed as a “secret industrial waterfront location,” I’m betting (and hoping!) that this means it will return to its home on the Red Hook waterfront, full of the grittiness that makes this festival so unique and so New York.
But let’s talk about this incredible lineup! You have GRiZ‘s amazing funkiness, the disco sounds of The Knocks, and legends Zeds Dead and Flying Lotus. The Golden Pony is an NYC staple, and there’s also Giraffage, Justin Martin, Chris Lake, STeLOUSE, and so much more! And this is only phase one.
While the music is certainly the main attraction at Elements, it’s hardly the only attraction. BangOn!NYC‘s event production is always top notch, and you’ll love walking around and taking in the elements-themed stages, art cars, and insane performers. It’s truly an adult circus, in all the best ways.
Tickets are already on sale, so lock yours down immediately and get ready for a craaaazy day!
