A niche New York festival, Elements Music & Art Festival celebrated its fifth-anniversary last weekend.

With superb sets, immersive art, and a charismatic crowd, it was one for the books. There was a lot to love about the independently organized festival, but 7 elements really stood out. 

1. An eclectic lineup featuring acts like Bassnectar, Snakehips, Emancipator, Jade Cicada, SNBRN and Justin Jay. A solid mix of earth-shaking bass, infectious house, and chill-out sounds.

3. Dancing by the waterfront on a cloudy summer evening
