Returning to Brooklyn next Saturday, August 22 is the Elements Music & Arts Festival! Hosted by Bang On NYC! Bang On is New York’s premier underground party and event host. Usually a host of events thrown in Brooklyn warehouses, Bang On is moving outdoors for what’s looking to be one of the hottest parties of the summer, and I’m not just talking about the weather. With a lineup featuring artists by the likes of Sphongle, Liquid Stranger, XXYYXX, Autograf, Paper Diamond, Herobust, Branx, Minnesota, and many many more, we can already conclude that this festival is going to get wild. The vast lineup guarantees to bring a plethora of genres to the stage, bound to supply a wide variety of banging tunes all day and night long. Located on a ‘secret’ Brooklyn waterfront location (691 Columbia Street, Brooklyn, NY) the 18+ festival will go on from 1-10pm. If you went to last year’s Elements Festival, then you know what’s coming for you, but expect even bigger and better with the same good Bang On family vibes!
The artists will play on 4 different stages titled appropriately to fit the elemental theme; Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire.
Autograf, formerly Midnight Conspiracy, are a group of Chicago natives who incorporate live instruments, like the marimba for example, into deep-tropical sets. If you’re not already aware of their music, picture a hybrid of Kygo and Manic Focus. (which on a side note, a collab between the three would be real awesome. Manic and the Autograf dudes are already living in Chicago. Make it happen…) Definitely recommend catching their set if you want to hear an original live spin on some tropical and deep house tunes.
If you’re a fan of house music, in addition to Autograf, Amtrac and Landis LaPace are also on the bill and bound to provide your soul with some heavy bass vibes. Peep the track below to get a sense of “The Heat” Landis LaPace is about to bring to the stage. (These weather puns are too easy…)
Bang On NYC Elements Music & Arts Festival, we are ready for you!
