The legendary party crew, who have become famous for their immersive, large-scale warehouse parties (and a more recent House of Yes-based “Sessions” series), dropped an eclectic and enticing lineup for their first ever multi-day camping festival.

The first installment of Lakewood Camping Festival is being marketed as a regional offshoot of the Elements Arts and Music Festival, which has called Brooklyn home for the past two years. Despite sweltering temperatures, thousands made the trek to Red Hook last August to see sets from big names like electro-funk producer Gramatik and the blue-haired genre bender herself, Mija.
