On August 12th and 13th, my all-time favorite event of the entire summer, let alone favorite festival of the year will come back to the Big Apple once more; however, it'll be hopping from borough to borough this time- going from its previous home at the Red Hook Grain Terminal in the nitty gritty depths of Brooklyn to a brand-new massive space in the Bronx.
A space where Berlin meets Burning Man- and the 4 elements that this very earth is crafted upon will fuse together to bring you the most immersive, spiritually stimulating experience of your life. This is Elements:
If there's ever gonna be a time where you're going to let your inner child out and open your soul to the world, it's gonna be at Elements. Think of it as basically a huge industrial playground consisting of properly curated tunes, immersive art installations, fire breathers and BMX riders (definitely won't find those at your local playground), glitter, a roller disco and some of the best people you'll ever come across to name just a few things Elements is about.
Tuning in with your spiritual side is something that Elements heavily encourages as well- as there will be a medley of opps that allow you to cater to your health and wellness, such as Hip-Hop yoga, a cuddle lounge and even a sound bath.
Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and a fifth element are the foundation that this very raw and organic festival experience is built off of- as Elements has constructed their entire brand off of the beautiful, simple things in life such as good people, good music and good vibes. Speaking of good music, Elements and event curator BangOn! NYC have just so happened to round up the most diverse tastemakers in the scene to bring you one of the most fuego lineups of the 2017 festival season.
Up first, we have headliners FLYING LOTUS, funk-master GRIZ, bass champs ZEDS DEAD and THE KNOCKS- not to mention one more secret headliner that has yet to be announced, just to keep us on our toes a bit longer. Alongside the big boys will be artists like CLAUDE VONSTROKE's alias Barclay Crenshaw, Bromance Records finest export BRODINSKI, CHRIS LAKE, Dirtybird's "fun-uncle" figure JUSTIN MARTIN, NORA EN PURE, CHET PORTER and more. It takes a lot to craft the perfect festival lineup, but Elements has hit a home-run by hand-picking artists that all have their own unique attributes and sound that would mesh perfectly together with the Elements ethos and aesthetic- such as the mystical DAMIAN LAZARUS, who will be headlining the Zero "Air" Stage.
It's not too late to snag some tickets for the event of the summer HERE, but act quick- as all tickets are on their final tier. Check out the set times below!
