Countdown to Elements Lakewood: Activities and Installations

first_imgElements Music and Arts Festival started as a one-day festival in an abandoned shipyard in the industrial neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn. This year, Elements progresses into a three-day camping event located in scenic Lakewood, Pennsylvania, over Memorial Day Weekend, complete with a lake, cabins, bonfires and a concoction of electronic flavors that will lure the best of NYC’s twisted underground two-and-a-half hours north of the concrete. The ambitious creators of BangOn! are finally bringing their talents to greener pastures and open fields, where they’ll combine carefully curated elemental themed stages powered by headliners like Tipper, Claude Von Stroke, Ott, Lee Burridge, Claptone, and Liquid Stranger, with one-of-a-kind visual art collaborations and large-scale installations; their most elaborate ephemeral adult playground to date. Tickets, cabins and shuttle buses from Port Authority are all still available here.Let’s talk about David Tipper, lionized for his trans-dimensional alien crunk encompassing diverse styles and themes, such as his downtempo sunrise and Tip-Hop sets. The live Tipper alchemy is a grandiose and enveloping experience—a sonic filet of the brain—enhanced by visual effects innovators like Android Jones. Get ready for full on intergalactic vibrations at Elements Lakewood with a first time collaboration with Tipper and Datagrama.tv. This Portuguese vision maestro merges psychedelic imagery with digital fabrics and molecules, promising a brand new experience for fans old and new. (Check out a video preview here.)Elements Lakewood’s cosmic smorgasbord of eye candy will also include Earth Stage projection mapped design by multi-media visual pioneers Rhizome NYC and ritualistic exhibition creators The Reliquarium. At the heart of the festival is Deep Mind Terrors, an art warehouse blurring the lines between surreal visual experience and psychedelic chill-out lounge, curated by Brooklyn based creative minds Mitzi Peirone and Cadence Hooks. There are also themed rooms such as The Fortress of Comfort, a pillow lair to unwind in with psychedelic projections and ambient tunes, and The Chaos Room, an interactive space chock full of LED installations, projection mapping, and voodoo jam outs.More embedded installations include Lakewood Sanatorium, an interactive theater tour through the asylum for a glimpse of the elemental witches that hold dominion over the minds of it’s patients. Delve into multiple rooms filled with actors from mystical worlds, complete tasks & play games to discover revelations from the Mystic and the Oracle. Freaks, get ready to get weird in the woods with a costume contest! The most stylish and decadently dressed group, seen dancing the most Saturday afternoon will be rewarded with $150 to spend on food & beverages + a free Elements Merch Pack. Check in with your group at 2pm on Saturday at the Water Stage donning your best looks!Wanna roller skate? Tiki Disco’s in the house to keep you grooving and moving.

Camping vibes will be kept alive nightly with BYOI bon fires – Bring Your Own Instruments! (accordions, guitar, percussion, flute, horn, your voice, etc).

Clubs will need to fill… The cash hole towards autumn looks pretty grim,” said Parry.The former chief executive of Liverpool FC said he was hoping the league would come out of the crisis “stronger, leaner (and) more efficient, to have a proper reset”.He expressed the hope that players would be willing to take pay cuts.“What was clear at the start of the process (was that) the players were not aware of the depth of the problem.”Parry added that an “open book” policy from the league would help the players see the need for cuts or deferrals.
