Returning to its bucolic Pennsylvania lakeside camping retreat for the third edition, Elements Lakewood Music & Arts Festival has announced the lineup for this Memorial Day weekend, May 24-27, 2019. Produced by independant New York City party starters, BangOn!NYC, Elements Lakewood will welcome Disclosure, Big Gigantic, Damian Lazarus, FISHER, Francesca Lombardo, Justin Martin, Seth Troxler, Shiba San, Sofi Tukker, and over 100 more artists across the 200 acre grounds boasting a beach, lakeside views, a verdant forest, lush green fields and large indoor recreational spaces. Offering a variety of accommodation options from camping and glamping to cabins, festival-goers can partake in wellness and summer camp activities, swim in the lake, hear incredible music, experience live interactive art, theater performances, and much more.
With three days and nights of nearly non-stop music, Elements Lakewood 2019 will feature acts across house, world beats, techno, bass, jam rock and funk on seven uniquely-themed stages running from sunset to sunrise. Nestled deep within Lakewood’s bucolic forest setting, two-time GRAMMY-nominated UK garage and house music brothers Disclosure will share the Fire Stage with “Losing It” producer and 2019 GRAMMY nominee FISHER, house maestro Shiba San, Dirtybird mainstay Justin Martin, LA’s Sam Blacky, NYC favorite The Golden Pony and more. Electronic instrumental duo Big Gigantic will lead the Earth Stage alongside NYC-based GRAMMY-nominated duo Sofi Tukker, rising indie-electronic composer CloZee, Canadian future funk house duo The Funk Hunters, plus a to-be-announced special guest, and more. Helming the Air Stage, underground savant Seth Troxler will bring the deep sounds of house and techno along with Crosstown Rebels label head Damian Lazarus, deep and emotive Francesca Lombardo, electronic singer-songwriter and guitarist, Monolink, a live set from Belgian group Stavroz, and Robot Heart regular Atish, among others. Additionally, more than 30 local acts will play over the weekend across the Theatre, Water, Alchemy, and Pool stages.
Offering attendees a break from the dance floor, Elements Lakewood’s Wellnest and camp games programming will encompass a variety of games, workshops and wellness activities. Welcoming industry leaders in healing and wellness, attendees will be able to participate in aromatherapy, bass, hip-hop and sunset yoga, a cuddle and consent class, ecstatic dance, improv comedy workshops, sound baths, and plenty more to be announced. Making use of its locale, Elements will allow festival-goers to relive their childhood summer camp memories with basketball and volleyball matches, a ropes course, a zip line, rock climbing, a live prom band, roller skating disco with live DJs, campfire sing-alongs, kayak trips at sunset, and other water sports including canoeing, swimming, and more to be announced. Announcing the return of the Unicorn Lounge, fans looking to pamper themselves can book in with the barber, indulge in a manicure, or get party-ready with some face paint and glitter.
Building upon last year’s décor and artistic offerings, Elements is pleased to present work from a variety of exceptionally talented artists. Welcoming the return of the Pirate Ship to the Water Stage, day party fans can float around on giant rafts or get in the groove under the sun on the shore. After dusk, fans can look forward to spontaneous nighttime adventures deep into the forest to marvel at hanging kaleidoscope lights, natural tree sculptures, climb-on installations, dance to their favorite DJs under the forest canopy and hang out in hidden tree houses. This year will also see them add an additional late night forest stage nestled among 80 foot pine trees covered in woodland décor. Keeping attendees refueled throughout the festival weekend, a wide selection of food and beverage vendors will also be on-site catering to all palates, with a number offering 24/7 service.
