Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival Celebrates A Decade Of Innovation October 3-6
With summer in our rear view window, the rooftops and outdoor venues that we love so much are beginning to shut their doors. Now its time to look forward to raucous club nights of Fall. Once the parties move indoors, New York City takes on an entirely different vibe. For years the harbinger of Autumn in NYC hasn’t been the scarlet and gold of the changing leaves, but instead the advent of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival.
After a decade of showcasing both local New York talent and world-renowned dance music acts, Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival (BEMF) makes its triumphant return October 3-6 2018 for its milestone 10th edition. Touching down for four nights across some of Brooklyn’s finest venues, the festival is pleased to announce its full lineup as well as welcoming Nina Kraviz, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Mount Kimbie, DJ Hell, Breakbot and more top electronic artists from the borough and around the world.
Spanning across nine venues in the hippest Brooklyn neighborhoods of Bushwick, Gowanus, Greenpoint and Williamsburg, one of the festival’s major venue partners in 2018 is the Avant Gardner. Known for its unique events and massive spaces, the two indoor industrial event areas the Great Hall and the Kings Hall, will host stellar shows with house and disco favorite Motor City Drum Ensemble. Representing some of New York’s finest, BEMF has invited the legendary François K, Founding father of Deep Space and Body & Soul to join Sublimate’s Sagotsky, and Solarplexia’s Seth Magoon to round out the billing for the Friday, October 5 show.
On Saturday, October 6, ReSolute will take the reins at the iconic venue bringing top-notch creative production elements to the night. Festival-goers can expect a dramatic expanse of layered hypnotic visuals to complement the diverse palette of house, techno, and acid slated from the stellar lineup with Nina Kraviz at the helm.
Starting on a Brooklyn dance floor in 2009, the independently run festival is committed to showcasing some of the best genre-bending DJs and live electronic acts with an emphasis placed on celebrating the artists who are perseverant enough to call Brooklyn home.
