Elements Music and Arts Festival NYC 2018

It’s that time again ladies and gentleman, BangOnNYC’s Elements Music and Arts Festival NYC is back and packed with star power. It’s year five of the annual event, and on August 11th at Hunts Point in the Bronx, BangOnNYC will reconstruct an industrial park into a rich and fruitful musical playground.

The city’s lively borough will house lovers of light, love, and EDM all in just one day this year, so mark your calendars because there’s only one chance to see acts such as Bassnectar, Snakehips, and Emancipator come together to awaken your spirit and warm your hearts.

Integrating Technology with Art

2018 has seen a rise in A.I from talking robots with emotions to cellular phones with face recognition. Similarly, BangOnNYC will be joining the movement and will be focusing on merging technology with art. Participatory activities, interactive performers, and immersive art will create a world apart from anything they’ve done before.

This year it is mandatory for guests to engage with performers to elevate the overall experience and revamp the re-imagined world. Guests will also have the option to climb atop massive art carts for prime views of stages, wander through a multi-scene interactive theater and take a breather in cozy hideouts. But that’s not even the best part, the integration of technology with art is sure to hike up the festival.

BangOnNYC has invited some of the globes most talented young artists to showcase their tech art and give guests a close and communal experience. Cutting-edge conceptual works using projections, programmable LED’s and motion capture technology will be waiting for you at Elements NYC 2018.

A Stage for Each Element

There will be four stages to hop to and from, each themed as one of the four elements.

Earth Stage

Headlining at the Earth Stage will be Bassnectar, the multi-genre inspired bass musical sensation will be hitting the stage hard. Most recently releasing the EP Reflective, Part 2, Elements awaits the dynamic precision and color of Bassnectar.

Water Stage

Blessing the stage of life is none other than electronic R&B/future Hip-Hop UK duo Snakehips. Released this year, their EP Stay Home Tapes gave vibes all the way to next week and back. Undoubtedly, Snakehips is set to deliver waves of rhythm and electronic love that will get people close.
