It's that magical time of year! By which I mean early November, when dozens of groundbreaking electronic artists, producers, and DJs flood Williamsburg for Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival. I was lucky to witness live sets by Baths, Photek, and Nicolas Jaar at last year's three-day long event, and I couldn't be more excited for this year's lineup.
BEMF is a truly unique festival. It's artfully curated for fans looking to hear new live spins on familiar favorites as well as less established, more experimental sounds.
This year is no exception, and will feature the likes of Todd Terje, Jerome LOL, Actress, Star Slinger, XXXY, and the list goes on and on... but acoustic fans, beware. Shenanigans will start briefly Thursday night, but the real mayhem unfolds Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (November 8-10)! Getting tickets is easy, the hard part will be choosing who to see and who to skip. I've pulled a few highlights from this year's roster to make the task a little easier, so enjoy!
