We’re Digging The Elements
Elements Music & Arts Festival is going to be beyond amazing. This is one of the major festivals in the Northeast and the lineup matches the intensity of the festival! This will be an escape from the norm where you are immersed in everything creative and get a break from the stresses of life. This carefree weekender is full of music, camping, art, and adventure in Long Pond, Pennslyvania this August 10th-14th.
Last year, Long Pond proved to be the perfect new home for the revered Elements community. This new location inspired revelers to its magical fields of wonder and the entrancing forest landscapes. The new location was PERFECT and Elements is ready to head back home to one of the Northeast’s most unique locations with its celebrated community.
And the lineup is the cherry on top of this already perfect weekend. Elements DELIVERED with this lineup by brining in some of the BIGGEST and best out there while providing something for fans of all styles and music. This is just a taste of what is in store and there will be over 100 artists, many of which haven’t been announced yet!
Ready for the lineup? We know that its one of the main draws to a festival and you can expect the best of the best from this lineup! Attendees can look forward to a performance from the one-and-only Skrillex, along with the mesmerizing sounds of Porter Robinson (DJ Set), house music heavyweight founder Chris Lake who will be hosting a Black Book Records stage takeover, crowd-favorite John Summit, the potent musical stylings of the Pennsylvania kid Subtronics, and Belgian bass duo Ganja White Night.
Lovers of live electronic music will feel right at home with performances on deck from the classically-trained English vocalist Elderbrook and East Coast funk-jam icons Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. Those seeking out heavier electronic strains of dance are in for a treat with appearances by trippy low-end producer LSDREAM, the esoteric frequencies of globally revered beatsmith TOKiMONSTA, and the dark styles of Mersiv, Peekaboo, and Of The Trees. Level Up will offer her femme touch on the bass music sound, while Zingara reimagines the genre with her super-producer sensibilities.
House heads can rejoice as Elements has gathered some of the genre’s foremost modern flag bearers to soundtrack its return to Long Pond. LP Giobbi’s piano-weapon gold will be on full display with a FEMME HOUSE stake takeover along with French icon Tchami, followed up by the meteoric momentum of HoneyLuv, Dirtybird innovator Nala, and bass house superstar Noizu. Dutch duo Tinlicker bring an underground European flavor to the lineup alongside chart topper Westend and the laidback stylings of SNBRN. Electronic funk duo The Sponges will showcase their larger than life performances, while Kaleena Zanders sets forth a soulful, live vocal journey into the new-age corners of house music. The more melodic end of the 4/4 spectrum is represented by Anjuna’s own Qrion and All Day I Dream upstart David Hohme.
With a name like Elements, you wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the stages are elemental themed as well. Fire is the home for thrill-seekers who thrive off moments of spontaneous fun and fiery personalities, while Earth presents a psychedelic paradise of neon trees, galactic mushrooms, and airborne jellyfish. Air offers a temple of melodies tucked deep in the forest, while the sunshine playground known as Water is where acrobats, pirates, and clowns are ever abounding and swimsuits are heavily encouraged. Perfect for whatever mood you’re feeling!
Beyond the music, festival goers can explore a magical playground that includes Burning Man style art cars that are integral to the experience. Plus, add in the bonus 3D video projection mapping, large-scale art installations, and interactive performances in every direction, a Health & Wellness lineup featuring yoga, aromatherapy, dance, comedy, sound baths, and multidisciplinary workshops, and you’ve got a winning festival. Wanna shop until you drop? Attendees can also stop by the vendor village for unique jewelry, creative art, and festival attire, or refuel from the dance floor at a 24-hour food court with an array of healthy and organic local food provided by Pocono Organics, one of North America’s largest regenerative organic certified farms.
The concept of co-creation remains pivotal to the Elements experience. They bring this together by allowing themed camps and the feedback of the community together to create the most immersive space. It’s going to be a grand time!
With humble beginnings, Elementals is just taking off. The festival looks forward to its 6th edition and has maintained being an independent festival. Founded by Timothy Monkiewicz and Brett Herman in 2013, Elements has grown rapidly from a one-day event on the Brooklyn waterfront to an immersive camping experience that has quickly become a staple of the festival circuit. The move to Long Pond has aided in this growth, with Elements now hosted in the woodlands adjacent to the raceway. The venue is powered by an onsite solar farm, further assisting Elements in its long-term sustainability goals. Sounds like a win to me!!1
According to the founders, this venue was always part of the plan for Elements, noting “We first saw our new home outside of Pocono Raceway in 2016 when we were scoping the location for our first Elements campout. We instantly fell in love with the site, but it was way too big for a first year festival on a shoestring budget. Out of the 40+ locations we visited, it was by far the best, and we always knew that this would be the perfect home for Elements. We are beyond grateful that 6 years later we were able to move here.”
And what a fantastic location it is! The venue is less than 2 hours from New York City and Philadelphia, making for an easy drive from a variety of locations throughout the Northeast. Want to skip the drive? Grab yourself a shuttle pass from New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and D.C. to and from the festival.
