Festival season is upon us and we can hardly contain our excitement to get out and start experiencing all of these events. Just announced today is Elements Music & Arts Festival’s 2022 lineup that is sure to have any festival goer ready to buy a ticket. Some of today’s brightest stars will be gracing the stages over the 3 day festival including Kaskade, who will be performing a special Redux set, Nicole Moudaber, TroyBoi, Seth Troxler, Rezz, Claptone, Sofi Tukker, The Knocks, J. Worra, Zeds Dead, and many more.
The lineup isn’t the only thing to notice. This year’s Elements is poised to flourish more than ever before by laying roots for the first time in the fields and forests of Long Pond Pennsylvania. This new site provides a built-in food, water, parking, car camping, and safety infrastructure, with a history of hosting events 5x the size of Elements, and a shorter drive to all major cities on the East Coast.
Talking with founders Brett Herman and Timothy Monkiewicz, they stressed that safety is one of their five essential pillars for Elements 2022. They’ve established a 5-point plan and roadmap for all to see, which you can view here. One key feature is that the new site is on solid ground with drainage designed to handle inclement weather. The 2022 staff has been hand-selected by a new board of advisors, who have over 25+ years of experience dealing with large gatherings, to meet the highest standard of event knowledge, guest hospitality, and crowd safety protocols. There will also be more than double the options for food, water, bathrooms, medical, and wellness services to reduce wait times for all.
When asked about what they are most excited for this year, the guys say “the venue! It’s our biggest canvas yet, and the woodland areas are even more beautiful…we will be recreating and improving everything we love from the past few years and adding a massive amount of new features, art, and interactivity.” Another detail unique to this years event is Car Camping. Brett and Timothy add “with our larger site with onsite parking, shuttle buses are no longer necessary, so you can drive right up to where you’ll be camped.”
One of the great things about Elements Music & Arts festival is that it’s so much more than just the music. They feature carefully curated Health and Wellness programming including yoga, aromatherapy, dance, comedy, sound baths, multidisciplinary workshops, and more. The 24-hour food court offers an array of healthy & organic local food sourced from Pocono Organics, including vegan & gluten free options for those with dietary restrictions, as well as water stations for guests to fill up their hydration pack or water bottles
To all of this year’s newcomers, Brett and Timothy say “welcome to the community! Elements is an extended family, and we welcome all. Also, go with the flow! We hear from many first timers that the unexpected was what they loved the most. If you miss a DJ set because you are having fun blowing bubbles in the forest with a performer dressed like a unicorn, don’t worry about it! We want to encourage all newcomers to make friends, seek new experiences, and have the time of their lives.”
