Forget the winter and start thinking about grilling – BangOn! just announced their first ever camping festival for Memorial Day weekend. Elements Music & Art Festival – Lakewood seems like the best way to kick off the 2017 festival season. With a stacked phase one announcement and just a short 2.5-hour drive from NYC this festival looks promising. We expect the BangOn team to bring their visions to a whole new level with this one; top notch stage productions, new interactive art sculptures, bigger jungle gyms, games and activities, live artists, fire performers, the whole nine-yards.
The lineup is a perfect blend across all genres of electronic music. Sitting at the top of the lineup is none other then the trip-hop master, Dave Tipper, along with Jade Cicada, Ott., Bluetech, Herobust, and Keys & Krates. If you’re a house music fan, then you’re in luck. Between Claptone to Burning Man favorites Lee Burridge and Oonah Dahl, along with some of Dirtybird Records finest, there will be plenty beats to keep you dancing all day long. The BangOn team appears to be a big fan of Dirtybird Records as they continuously bring out the label’s hottest and newest talent. This time around they’re bringing a whole flock as Billy Kenny, Walker & Royce, Justin Jay, Doorly, & the boss himself, Claude Vonstroke will be hitting the decks. Strap on those dancing shoes and prepare to hear some of the chunkiest bass lines known to man because it’s about to get dirty.
What makes us love BangOn is how they incorporate something for everyone. Whether you’re into bass or house, if you’re an artist or performer, or just experiencing your first festival, you’re bound to have a good time. See you on the dance floor!
If you and your crew want to be a part of fun sharing experience, you can now send in an application for a Theme Camp. BangOn is accepting ideas for theme camps in which you and your crew, if selected, will be placed in a reserved camping area in a prime location of the festival grounds and provided electricity if need be. [We’re still waiting on more info for this!]
Also BangOn loves Mother Nature as much as we do and they’re going above and beyond to support a good cause by offering free parking and a $20 food/beverage voucher for those arriving by hybrid or electric vehicle. They will also sponsor a grant for any approved art installation that incorporates solar power! Hit [email protected] to inquire!
