Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival (BEMF)
today announced the lineup for its 8th annual installment, which takes
place November 5th through 8th across 8 venues in Williamsburg,
Brooklyn. The lineup continues BEMF’s legacy of forward thinking
curation, positioning it as a unique showcase for New York’s emerging
talent, alongside leaders of the global underground.
This year’s lineup features the likes of MK, Armand Van Helden, Masters
at Work, Laidback Luke b2b Gina Turner, Floating Points, Soul Clap,
Snakehips, Daniel Avery, George Fitzgerald, and Django Django, with more
to be announced soon.
Since its inception, BEMF has striven to blur genre boundaries and push
past notions of underground and commercial in order to simply present
artists that need to be heard in NYC. As such it has championed diverse
artists like Hudson Mohawke, Nicolas Jaar and The Black Madonna, well
before they burst into popular conscience.
BEMF also seeks to provide a platform for those in the electronic music
industry to discuss ideas, the issues and challenges they face, and to
celebrate its unique artists. BEMF will host daily daytime panel
sessions and fireside chats hosted with BEMF’s media partner, VICE’s
dance music platform, THUMP, and music technology company, Novation.
BEMF’s programming extends beyond the traditional two-day festival
experience with two pre-parties opening the proceedings on Thursday,
November 5th, and a closing morning brunch on November 8th. This year
BEMF will also bring back their official after-hours programming,
kicking off Saturday at midnight, and running through Sunday sunrise.
