Event: BangOn!NYC Presents: ELEMENTS Outdoor Music And Art Festival
ELEMENTS- Bangon’s premier music and arts festival at a spectacularly unique post-industrial waterfront venue…a dreamer’s playground that feels like an affair between Berlin, Burning Man, and Bushwick- a secret city within the heart of Brooklyn. For it’s third year, BangOn! is hosting a day long event from 12pm–11pm that will feature four unique stages (Water, Earth, Air, Fire) that are displaying a combination of live performances and DJs. Paper Diamond, XXYYXX, Shpongle, Amtrac, Minnesota, and Nora en Pure, are just a few of this year’s must-see performances out of the thirty-one to choose from. Outside of the talent, fans can expect large-scale themed art installations, 3D projection mapping, death-defying aerial performances, magnificent art cars, decadent food trucks, exotic clothing/jewelry vendors, rides, slides, circus performances, and an entire new world to experience.
If unfamiliar, BangOn! has been at the forefront of pop up warehouse parties for the past 8 years. Routine sell-outs, the parties take place during the holiday and summer seasons (New Years Eve “Time & Space,” Halloween “Warehouse Of Horrors,”). The producers of BangOn!’s forward thinking ideas and saavy attention to detail have given them the reputation of the closest you’ll come to Burning Man on the east coast, not to mention the leaders of independent EDM events in New York City. Trippy art installations, carnival rides, and aerial dancers, are just some of the perks from BangOn! events. The producers have recruited some of the most creative minds of generation to illuminate their events including award-winning 3D projection mappers Light Harvest, Reality Engine, and Rhizome.
Their talent as tastemakers shines with seamless bookings that bring out some of electronic music’s music critically acclaimed stars including Twin Shadow, Lee Foss, Felix Da Housecat, and more. This penchant for top-notch bookings even awarded BangOn! their very own stage at this year’s Mysteryland, that featured buzzy underground talent including Alastair, Hohme, The Golden Pony, and more. Further, their activation at Mysteryland also include the only after hours stage with their curated silent disco.
