Three years ago, Elements Lakewood Music Festival found its home at a Jewish sleep-away camp near the Poconos, and Memorial Day weekend hasn’t been the same since. Looking for a tall shot of nostalgia? BangOn!NYC‘s out of town gathering has the goods! Complete with cabin-living, field games, a roller skating rink, and water sports, not to mention sets from artists like Big Gigantic, Fisher, CloZee, and Monolink, there’s no other music festival quite like this. Oh and we didn’t even mention the flaming stages, the climbable art cars or the secret speakeasy. Believe us, this is the kick-off your summer craves.
It all started in Brooklyn with the original Elements Music & Arts Festival, which has seen many iterations including large-scale events in Red Hook and Hunts Point, BX, too. Well that festival has grown up… kind of. While the concept encourages guests to embrace their inner child more than ever before, the level of production and it’s accompanying talent roster have achieved astounding new heights. This underground celebration is a triumph for the Brooklyn-based party company, and honestly, Elements Lakewood has become one of our favorite events of year. It’s quirky. It’s fun. It’s the right amount of dangerous. And the only thing that could make it even better is having more of you weirdos on board to experience the magic.
Are you ready to see what everyone is talking about? Or maybe, you’re dying to get your ass back to this homespun wonderland? Well, I have some good news for you! Early bird tickets and cabin reservations for the 2020 event (taking place May 22nd – 25th in nearby Lakewood, Pennsylvania) are now up for grabs. Get your tickets and cabin spots HERE at the lowest possible price available, now through 11:59 PM on Friday, June 14th.
Never change. Have a great summer. See you at camp next year. <3
