It’s the freakinnnn weekend and we know you’re sick and tired of been cooped inside all week. Elements Music & Arts Festival was expected to occur over this weekend in Lakewood, PA. However along with the rest of the 2020 summer festival season they had to postpone. But not to worry, they’ve pulled together and delivered us virtual greatness. A hugeeee shoutout to the homies over at BangOn!NYC for being able to salvage the festival and creating a virtual beach for us all to bask in. Welcome to U SEXY BEACH, a digital dance party!
Festivals have had to quickly adapt to the fast-moving climate that is occurring in the industry with cancelations popping up left and right. It’s understandably been a rough time for all. For us to see the community come together to throw events like such is truly remarkable and inspiring. Despite these dark times we may be living in, these virtual festivals have done a tremendous job of making the community feel wholesome. It really feels as though we haven’t skipped a beat.
Elements already boasted an incredibly diverse and deep lineup, so it came as no surprise that when they dropped this lineup it would include some scorching heat. Bringing the sandy beaches to small apartments all over the world, Elements’ Friday night lineup is headlined by two of the most reputable legends in bass and house music. House honcho & Dirtybird chef, Claude VonStroke will be your captain for this evening’s rendezvous of pure techno debauchery. While dubstep icon, legend, godfather, THE Rusko provides us with those old school wubs. Bass and house music just go together like White Claws and a forgetful evening.
House artists JackLNDN, Golf Clap & The Sponges will kick off the epic dance party starting at 6 PM EST.
Once the mesmerizing beats clear way and the sun starts to set, the weird bass creatures come out to play. KOAN Sound, Rusko & Megan Hamilton & The Widdler come together for a psychedelic explosion of bass. Notably, KOAN Sound will be debuting a BRAND NEW SET & VISUALS, that cannot be missed. The festival will also feature an assortment of live visual arts and interactive art performances. We’ll be sure to have our fractal goggles handy, you should too.
Saturday is a tech-house heaven as some of the sexiest beat makers will take their talents to the live stream. Shout out, to all our big brain people out there, this one is for you. Rising Dirtybird star J. Worra will headline the night of grooves alongside the masterful and well-rounded Sasha Robotti. A slew of other artists like The Golden Pony & Wyatt Marshall helps to bolster the already eccentric lineup, culminating an epic night of woogying.
