BROOKLYN, NY - SEPTEMBER 23, 2014 - The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival returns for its seventh year on Friday and Saturday, November 7 & 8, taking over 10 venues in the heart of Williamsburg, with a pre-party as part of Input on November 6th. Since its inception in 2008, BEMF has established itself as a NYC mainstay - an endemic and eclectic festival celebrating Brooklyn's electronic musical landscape and proudly presenting both emerging and established artists from the Boroughs and beyond.
This year's venues will include the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Output Panther Room, Verboten, Cameo, Villain, Kinfolk, Baby's All Right, Glasslands and an undisclosed afterparty location. Katie Longmyer (Good Peoples), known for her expertise in lifestyle and creative partnerships, and Jen Lyon (MeanRed), known for her booking and curation acumen, co-own and co-produce BEMF.
Each year, artists and music-lovers flock to Brooklyn for an authentic underground experience that is emulative of the music BEMF showcases. "Brooklyn has always been the fringe. Brought into the mainstream in these past few years, what still exists is a pulse that is unique. Artists experience New York City differently here," says Jen Lyon.
2013's Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival was the most successful yet, with more than 8,000 people in attendance. The New York Times hailed it as an "incubator...capturing rising DJs and producers before they make wide impact." Pitchfork noted, "With an extensive lineup tailored to appeal to interests both big-room and small-scale...[and] venues within walking distance of each other, BEMF is a dance festival without the muddy and furry-booted mayhem that often go hand-in-hand with dance festivals." "It's an easy point of entry for newer fans of the city's dance scene, juxtaposing old masters and up-and-comers in an easy-to-find format," said THE FADER.
Two-day festival passes go on sale today HERE. Priced at $120, the pass will grant access to any and all events that are part of BEMF, including the pre-party at Input with The Bunker on Thursday, November 6, and the Latenight Afterparty with RINSED on Saturday, November 8. (Entrance to all events is based on capacity, however BEMF staff will be stationed outside each venue to provide personal attention to passholders.) A very limited number of two-day VIP passes, priced at $175, are available HERE and will provide everything included with the two-day festival pass plus expedited entry, a limited edition BEMF t-shirt and additional perks.
W New York - Downtown will once again be the official hotel partner of BEMF, offering special hotel/ticket packages for festivalgoers. The Living Room Bar & Terrace, located on the 5th floor of W Downtown, will serve as the festival's Manhattan satellite location with programming open to the public for the duration of the festival weekend.Novation will be the festival's official hardware partner. BEMF welcomes Kinfolk as the official fashion curator of this year's festival. Kinfolk's newly-minted venue will serve as the ticketing and information hub for the event and the company will create the official line of BEMF merchandise.
