Elements Music & Arts Festival is bringing the fire back to Lakewood with the announcement of their full-fledged lineup for Memorial Day Weekend, May 22 to 25th, 2020. For their fourth edition, they’re bringingDiplo, Bonobo, Chris Lake, Gramatik, TOKiMONSTA, Bob Moses, Four Tet, Yotto and the Desert Hearts crew. But that’s not all. Aside from the hypnotizing music, they’re bringing larger than life art installations, wellness initiatives, interactive performances, vibe villages, a functional pirate ship, and summer camp-inspired activities, all to set the mood and magic.
If you’ve been to Elements Festival before, you know it’s summer camp but better and for adults. The “adult playground” features a beach with stunning lakeside views, a whimsical art-infused forest and an impressive selection of camping options for the weekend.
Attendees and festival-goers, be prepared to dance from dusk till dawn. Elements’ top of the line pyrotechnics, installations, serene lake, meditative sound baths, and immersive environment will have you feeling like a kid in a candy store. Over the past four years, Elements has delivered big surprises and has created unforgettable, transformative memories for all house music lovers and attendees. 2020 won’t be a year to disappoint.
The 2020 lineup boasts representatives from every in-vogue genre from house and playa-inspired techno, to heavier stylings like dubstep, glitch-hop, psy-dub and funk, all of whom will deliver their finest grooves across the festival’s collection of imaginative elemental stages, along with a number of community-produced renegade stages.
Element I. FIRE Stage
On Friday night, against a sublime, tree-lined vista, GRAMMY Award-winning producer Diplo will lead an inaugural US “Higher Ground” festival takeover on the Fire Stage, where he’ll introduce fans to his fresh, house-leaning catalogue with a little help from Lakewood veterans, Walker & Royce. Bringing chiller vibes on Saturday is ambient house stalwart Bonobo. Then the king of smooth cuts, Chris Lake, will end things on a hot note as Sunday’s closing headliner, alongside sizzlin’ sets from favorites like Dr. Fresch, The Golden Pony, J. Worra, Dirty Looks and AKKI.
Element II. EARTH Stage
The epic Earth Stage will undergo a trippy makeover with the introduction of The Rabbit Hole, North America’s premiere psychedelic visual experience featuring state-of-the-art projection mapping and a walking trail of massive, glowing structures that will transport attendees to a never-before-seen wonderland. Within this ethereal zone, rumbling acts like Jade Cicada, TOKiMONSTA, Gramatik, Emancipator, Rusko, and Manic Focus will bring heavy bass straight to the forest floor.
Element III. AIR Stage
Keeping things breezy on the Air Stage are Canadian electro-rockers Bob Moses, plus UK experimental producer Four Tet, progressive house visionary Yotto, All Day I Dream regular YokoO and the fun-loving Desert Hearts crew, whose infectious sounds will float sweetly into the colorful treetops.
Element IV. WATER Stage
The captain of this year’s Water Stage is none other than Dirtybird Records label boss Claude VonStroke, whose bubbly brand of house is certain to make big waves at the coveted daytime chill spot where revelers can otherwise dance to disco, board a floating pirate ship or take canoes out for a spin. On the hunt for fresh talent? Dozens of local artists can be found blasting tunes on five additional secret stages – the result is an auditory scavenger hunt where everyone wins!
Should attendees crave a breather between sets and sights, they’ll find refuge at the Wellnest. The extensive roster of health and wellness programming expands to include diverse forms of yoga, Didjeridu massages, as well as the return of popular offerings such as meditative sound baths and sunset vinyasa. As always, those who want to awaken their inner child may engage in classic summer camp activities like roller skating, rock-climbing, watersports, campfire storytelling,and treehouse hangouts. Fashion-forward festies can dazzle or “be-dazzled” at the Unicorn Lounge, where they can drop-in for a hair braiding and other glitter-related needs.
It’s these kinds of unexpected thrills that have helped Elements Lakewood emerge as the East Coast’s leading transformational camping festival. But this level of exploration takes a lot of energy. Thankfully, guests can stay sated by sampling tasty bites and sips from a wide selection of 24-hour vendors with options to satisfy any diet.
