The Phase 1 lineup for Elements Music & Arts Festival 2024

Some of the most electrifying names in dance music will be playing at the 2024 edition. These include chart-topping stadium-filling superstar Illenium, a Redux set from pioneering GRAMMY-nominated DJ and producer Kaskade, the darker sounds of forward-thinking producers Liquid Stranger and LSDREAM, and the head-splitting sounds of Excision.

Slander are pioneers in melodic bass and are on the Elements Festival lineup. There is also a back-to-back from Black Book Records head Chris Lake and Hellbent Records boss Cloonee, as well as a back-to-back throwdown from Sullivan King and Kayzo and D&B favorites like Sub Focus and Dimension.

Heavy sounds will be well covered by artists like Claude VonStroke‘s famous Barclay Crenshaw project, CloZee, a French artist and head of the Odyzey Music label, Of The Trees, a great bass producer, and Wreckno, a rapper and producer with many skills.

Fans can also find their feet behind well-known house artists like the Desert Hearts crew (Mikey Lion, Marbs, Porky, and Lee Reynolds), who will be playing the early-arriving kickoff set on Thursday. There will also be a performance by the Canadian production duo Bob Moses, the ABRACADABRA icon BLOND:ISH. Party-starting production duo Walker & Royce are also on the Elements Festival lineup which includes rising stars VNSSA & Nala playing a b2b set for fans, Chicago’s Azzecca, and melodic techno tastemakers Township Rebellion.

Exclusive sets are expected at Elements Festival 2024

Fans aren’t the only ones who can try new things at Elements. Several artists will play rare sets as part of special projects that show off a different artistic side of their style. The strange drum and bass sounds of Blanke: ÆON MODE are some examples. So are Boogie T’s live band performance as well as his solo performance, LSDREAM’s Lightcode’s sound healing and ambient bliss, and Slander Presents: Before Dawn‘s techno-tinged frequencies.

Elements 2024 marks our most diverse line-up, featuring a broad range of genres. We’re pumped for our first-ever drum and bass takeover, and we have some secret sets planned from fan-favorite acts! Each year, we meticulously match the design and production of the stages to the talent we book to help take the beats to an interdimensional planet of immersive audio-visual experience. – Timothy Monkiewicz, Co-Founder of Elements

The four stages: Fire, Earth, Air and Water

Each of Elements’ four main stages is named after a key part of the natural world that the event celebrates. People who like thrills and spontaneous fun live in Fire. On the other hand, Earth is a psychedelic heaven with neon trees, galactic mushrooms, and jellyfish floating through the air. Deep in the forest, Air is a temple of music. Water, on the other hand, is a playground for fun in the sun with lots of acrobats, pirates, and clowns. Swimwear is strongly suggested.

Art at the festival

People at the festival can also check out a magical playground with art cars that look like they belong at Burning Man. Elements will also have interactive performances, 3D video projection mapping, and large-scale art projects. There will also be a Health & Wellness section with yoga, aromatherapy, dance, comedy, sound baths, and workshops for people from different fields.

In support of the LGBTQIA+ community

The festival’s community-driven philosophy, which was made to give a voice to those who don’t have one, is reflected in the annual Art of Change program. The 2023 event was centered on the LGBTQIA+ community and included classes on Queer history, sexual orientation, and the essence of Drag, as well as a Pride Parade. Each drink sold at the festival’s Drag Brunch event raised money for The Trevor Project, a group that helps people in trouble. For The Art of Change program, more information and applications will be shared closer to the event. For Vibe Villages, Art & Visual Artists, Performers, and other groups, applications are now open.

The camping site

Elements has quickly grown into an immersive camping experience that lasts for several days. Along the way, it has become a mainstay of the festival scene. Moving to Long Pond has helped this growth, and now Elements is held in the woods next to the racetrack. An on-site solar farm powers the event, which helps Elements reach its long-term goals for sustainability.

The genesis of Elements has always been to constantly evolve, becoming more grand, more weird, and more wild each year. Fans can expect a number of revamped accommodation offerings and more opportunities to participate and become immersed in the experience. We are blooming sonically as well, with expanded stages including an upgraded water stage. Whether it’s exploring unseen new magical forest areas or experiencing spectacular and interactive art, we encourage attendees to choose their own adventure from a smorgasbord of side quests. – Brett Herman, Co-Founder of Elements
