Diamond Rings

The fourth annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival is coming to North 6th street in the ‘Burg this weekend, featuring six venues and over 40 artists. Get your booty shaking with a wide range of DJ, indie electronica and techno shows without having to deal with the bridge-and-tunnel crowd.  Some of the more exciting acts include Matthew Dear, Diamond Rings, Reggie Watts, Deadelus and a DJ set by Fischerspooner’s Casey Spooner and Lauren Flax.

I’ve attended twice in the past, and this is electronic music festival for people who stay away from electronic music festivals. Instead of teenybopper ravers rolling their pants off (they have their own option in two weeks here), there’s a more sophisticated crowd looking to take in some of the best up-and-coming DJs and electronic bands to hit the scene.

Tickets are $45 for a two-day pass and $30 for single-day pass. They can still be purchased here, or you can check out the box office at the Parked! Food Truck Lot and Box Office at 61 North 6th St.
