Elements NYC 2018 taps one its most exciting lineups to date, bringing 32 artists together across dubstep, house, funk and more to perform across five uniquely themed stages. Bass music icon Bassnectar headlines the bill with downtempo guru Emancipator, British hip-hop duo Snakehips, California’s own Dirtybird Players with Justin Jay and Sasha Robotti and many more joining the roster. Elements NYC takes the experience beyond just the music by meticulously placing each artist at the stage that best fits their sound. Both emotional and heavy acts such as Bassnectar and Emancipator hit the Earth Stage. Silky smooth artists like SNBRN and Goldfish grace the Water Stage. The lively Dirtybird Players take over the Fire Stage, and the ethereal rising performers like Dance Spirit (Live), Lost Desert and more land at the Air Stage.
Art of the Future
After wowing attendees in Lakewood with their exceptional decor, the creative team led by Julianne Irene has collaborated with 30 artists to transform Hunts Point into an interactive playground that begs to be explored. Fans will be impressed by climbable structures and the Lotus art car by Eagle Rock Studios, an alien garden known as the ‘Galatic Green House,’ and ‘Pipe Dreams’ – a dark cosmic peep show hidden inside a silo. Other decor that is sure to impress includes pyro at the Fire Stage and psychedelic alien-esque trees growing throughout the Earth Stage by Chateau Brooklyn. Bringing all five art cars from Lakewood, the iconic pirate ship last seen sailing in Pennsylvania will drop the anchor on land serving as the Water Stage. Numerous performers will roam the grounds including Team Kitty Koalition comprised of gogo and choreo dancers, stilt walkers, aerialists, fire, LED performers and thrilling over the top circus antics and jaw-dropping dance numbers with Fou Fou Ha. For those looking to partake in some fun-filled physical activities, festival goers can head over to the Big Kids Carnival Games presented by funtender Rawb Lane. Fans can test their skills at knocking down targets at The Wet Paint Pitch, drop it like it’s hot at The Bass Drop vertical target game and after dark. Join in on a glow-in-the-dark Champagne Ring-Toss. For those needing to refuel, a plethora of food vendors on site will cater to every palate with options varying from tacos to burgers, Thai, Mediterranean, vegan rolls, lobster rolls, and slushies. Keeping health and wellness in mind, Elements NYC will also host an abundance of workshops, bass yoga, sound healing, meditation and much more making this one of the most diverse and engaging festival experiences to hit the East Coast this year.
