Elements Music Festival Announces 2022 Lineup
Elements Music and Arts Festival is the kind of event we talk about in an elated tone and with wide eyes. Its mystique is self-contained and continues to inspire participants to immerse themselves in 72 hours of car camping, dancing and countless other unique feats – like abseiling from a 100-foot grain silo – in this field. of festival dreams if you think so (or even if you don’t) it will come.
Today, Elements Festival is proud to announce the first phase of the biggest lineup they’ve ever booked to celebrate their fifth anniversary, with stage production amped up to match the moment. Covering all genres of electronic music, the final lineup will feature over 100 artists in a stunning new location in the magical fields and forests of Long Pond, Pennsylvania from August 19-22.
Drawing the best artists from the dance music scene, Elements Festival features an incredibly diverse lineup, with debut appearances from Kaskade (Redux), Nicole Moudabar, Shermanology and Gene Ferris, as well as returning favorites FISHER, Zeds Dead, J Worra, Liquid Stranger, Sofi Tukker, Rezz, TroyBoi and many more.
What started as a one-day affair in 2013 on the Brooklyn waterfront, from the wildly creative minds of co-founders Timothy Monkiewicz and Brett Herman, has now grown into an epic, immersive and self-contained for three days. . Elements are purely indie and have catapulted themselves into becoming a household name on the festival circuit. This year’s elements are poised to flourish more than ever before… putting down roots for the first time in the fields and forests of Long Pond, Pennsylvania, where the festival’s founding fathers set foot so little baby from the Lakewood area, to the woods adjacent to Long Pond Racecourse, Monroe County. This new venue provides an integrated food, water, parking, RV and security infrastructure, with an event hosting history 5 times the size of Elements, and a shorter commute to all major cities on the east coast.
Brett adds, “We want people to experience things at Elements that they haven’t experienced anywhere else. We have offered inflatable obstacle courses as well as saunas and other wellness activities where you can really rejuvenate after a long night of partying. We’ve also had haunted houses, fire-breathing entertainers, and even people getting married on the spot with makeshift chapels created in the woods.
To coincide with the four elements, enhanced experiences will be designed for each stage: fire, earth, water, and air. Large-scale interactive art installations and 3D video projection mapping will accompany every step, along with music, to create authentic and unforgettable experiences.
For thrill seekers who like to share spontaneous and epic moments with a few thousand friends, the Fire Stage is the perfect place to enjoy sets like The Knocks and Duke Dumont. The Earth stage is for light and funky souls looking for lights, lasers and soulful sound from top artists like Rezz and The Floozies. For lovers of freedom of expression in all its forms, who stay in touch with their inner child, the Water Stage is the answer as artists like Claude Von Stroke of Dirtybird and Ferris Wheel founder Gene Ferris. For the spiritual looking for a getaway of transformation and connection through music, they will find their home on the Air stage to enjoy sets from Nicole Moudabar and Seth Troxler.
Elements doesn’t have an easy-to-pick-up aesthetic, nonetheless, what happens on its stages and between every nook and cranny of the expansive venue – powered by an on-site solar farm – is a delightful organic treat to light up the imagination with. so many experiences rolled into one. It’s equal parts intellectual fest perfect for production; a jungle of psychedelic neons and dreadlocks; a sprawling art installation; a camping, bathing, ninja knockdown, fire-breathing, and downhill dream come true; with the scale of its spectacle, as a more earthy and immersive version of the most revered scintillating electronic behemoths.
Monkiewicz explains, “We started throwing parties in New York to give people an epic all-night trip, rather than just focusing on selling tickets around a great DJ. The music and the dancing are always at the center of our events, but there was always a huge emphasis on interactive art installations, performance and unique experiences”.
This year, Timothy and Brett set out to build a new world with their fans’ input in mind to deliver the experience they deserve. Elements is the only RV-based electronic music festival in the Northeast and this year attendees can expect a revamped experience. In addition to glamping and high-end accommodation, this new site allows easy access entry for motorhomes and motorhomes, without the need for parking shuttles and a flat, solid ground with drainage designed to cope with the weather. Motorhome options will be available for GAs and VIPs.

Security is an essential pillar for founders. The 2022 staff have been hand-selected by a new board of advisors, who have over 25 years of experience in managing large gatherings, to meet the highest standards of event knowledge, hospitality guests and crowd safety protocols. They are dedicated to building an environment of accessibility where every festival-goer can find a point of contact for their needs.
