Festival Information, Art & Culture, Health & Wellness, Summer Camp Activities & Programming
Over the past ten years BangOn!NYC has created festival culture as it evolves and today the team of dreamers & doers is excited to announce the 2018 edition of Elements Lakewood Camping Music & Arts Festival. Set to take place deep in the woods & rolling hills of Lakewood, PA on Memorial Day Weekend; May 25th – 27th 2018; this year’s edition of Elements Lakewood will expand, improve and streamline upon the incredible fan feedback of those who broke ground last summer at its inaugural year.
Memories were made watching fireworks around the campfire, taking kayak trips across the lake at dusk, during enlightening afternoon yoga sessions, and getting lost under the kaleidoscopic trees illuminated in the forest stage.
Elements Lakewood will again transpire on a sprawling summer camp property offering green fields, forest stages, lakeside views and cabins. Entry/Exodus will improve with additional staff, a better organized parking lot, and more buses and trailers. Food options with 24/7 service, larger array of vendors, General Store, and the introduction of VIP services will enhance the attendee experience. BangOn!NYC’s acclaimed Mis-Information Office will return to answer any reasonable or somewhat-reasonable question 24/7.
Music & Stages
The lineup will be announced in January. Attendees can expect all the usual suspects plus a whole new crop of amazing talent across the four Element themed stages (Earth, Fire, Water, Air). New stages including a live music, ambient music areas and a new boat stage will encourage exploration of up-and-coming local artists.
Art & Experiences
Elements Lakewood will house experiences that need to be, well, experienced. Run through a hallway of infinity mirrors, lose track of time and explore the enchanted forest, nap beneath domes, venture into the Lakewood Sanitorium. This is an adventure. Art cars, areas for relaxation, secret paths and shortcuts to find and explore, fire pits to gather and build community around. Channel imaginations at tea ceremonies and lounges, take part in camp games.
The festival will feature three full days of Health & Wellness programming including Aromatherapy, BassYoga, Cuddle & Consent CozyClass, Ecstatic Dance, Improv Comedy Workshops, Sunset Yoga Flow & Hip-Hop Yoga, Sound Baths.
Roller skating, volleyball, soccer, basketball, ropes courses, zip line, human foosball. These are just a few of the many activities attendees can get involved with throughout the weekend.
