The choices are typically slim. Barbecue all Memorial Day Weekend with that weird uncle and spend the holiday grazing on cheese curdles and chicken parts over sporadic yelling way too seriously at “the game” or would it be preferable to revel in bliss with a few friends at a summer camp-themed festival adventure in the woods? 

Well, the arrival of the sensationally well-curated lineup from the 3rd annual Elements Music and Arts Festival in Lakewood just made the choice a lot easier. The growing but still grounded gem of an event from BangOn!NYC boasts a bill topped with heavyweights in a list that reads like the who’s who in today's most talked about music experiences. 

Elements Lakewood 2019 Lineup

With massive profiles like FISHER, Sofi Tukker, CloZee, Liquid Stranger, Shiba San, Justin Martin, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, Monolink, Francesca Lombardo and a rare DJ set from Disclosure, Elements Lakewood is projected to be the first monumentally massive source of early Summer FOMO for fans of house, techno, and bass music. 

Of the lineup announcement for Elements Lakewood 2019, BangOn!NYC co-founder and partner Timothy Monkiewicz told EDM.com: 

"One of the beautiful things about a festival is that you have people's attention for three full days and nights, and there are lots of opportunities to show them something they were not expecting. From personal experience as an artist, I know it can be so tough touring across the country and even selling 100-200 tickets at a mediocre venue, so it's really special when you're able to get a smaller act on a stage with big sound and lighting in front of thousands to show their potential.“

If a stacked music lineup doesn’t get those dancing shoes laced up then the natural glory of the venue probably will. Set against a picturesque lakeside campground, Elements offers a series of Summer camp inspired games, multi-sensory areas to explore, art cars to ride, and adjustable camping options designed to recreate the most nostalgic moments from years gone by, with a rowdy spin. Get a snazzy glamping teepee or a cabin for your crew. Then, sail on a pirate ship. Zip-line through the trees or class it up with a gaggle of glampers in the Sun. There's no shortage of experiences available this Memorial Day Weekend.

2019 started off with mounting concerns about what would be the “it” event during Memorial Day Weekend. This year alone at least two other festivals, that in the past have landed on Memorial Day Weekend, have canceled or moved to another date on the calendar. Wanes in the industry notwithstanding, the tuned-in audiophile can fret less about summer plans, knowing the exceptionally weird house and face-melting bass music dually await at Elements Lakewood, with a few extras along the way.

For a Summer that needs a little help getting out of second gear, Elements is the perfect tune-up. Tickets to the 2019 event are expected to sell quickly but were available on the Elements Website at the time of this writing.
