Memorial Weekend is almost upon us and the entire country is buzzing with music festivals. Everything from Lightening in a Bottle on the West Coast, Detroit Movement Festival in the Midwest and Elements Music & Arts Festival on the East Coast. The choices are abundant and we have decided to head on over to Lakewood, PA for a fun-filled weekend emphasized with glitter, costumes and music flavors that can satiate any appetite.
Magnetic Mag has put together two playlists to showcase some of the talent and flavor to experience this weekend and we asked each contributing artist to let us know what they are excited about for the weekend!
"I am incredibly honored and looking forward to providing music and engaging in the Arts, Culture and Extracurricular Activities this amazing festival has put together. Counting down the days until this moment is upon us all."

David Paglia - Gran Dyoor [Opulence]
David Paglia - Sea Quence [Cenote Records]
"Elements Lakewood is always fun for me due to the diversity of the audience. It’s rewarding to show a wider variety of people what I do. Maybe they came to the festival for a completely different style of music but had their perspective shifted unexpectedly. As artists and listeners, we’ve all had that moment of discovery."
Vincent Casanova - Floating Palace [OuiOui Concept]
Popoviciu - Tomorrow [Cyclic Records]
Wyro - Its Not Real [Highway Records]
"Playing for the second year in a row at Elements and I could not be more excited! I am looking forward to having a good time and to delivering an amazing experience to the crowd at Air Stage on Friday!"
Doctor Dru - Botah [JEUDI Records]
"I’m thrilled to be taking the sunrise duties at Elements Lakewood on Monday morning. I love musically transitioning the dancefloor from nighttime into daytime vibes since that lets me touch on various styles of music in my collection. Also, I heard there’s a roller rink! I’ll be sure to check this out after my set so I’m not on stage with an injury."
Krissky - Don't Be So Shy [Otake Records]
"Looking forward to being at summer camp again! So many friends are playing at the festival and I can't wait to seesaw with Tâches! I remember playing the opening year in 2017, the festival stood out from the start because of the location: I can't wait to be back."

Moo & Jo - Makasi [Mobilee Records]
"Really excited to DJ one of my favorite events! Can't wait to bring the party into the early morning at the Pool Haus!"

"I've been looking forward to Elements for months - I attended last year and had such an amazing time! This year I'm hoping I can kayak off of the Fire stage and onto the fire breathing dragon to end my set, but haven't fully worked out the logistics yet. Hope to see you there!"

I'm also equally excited for several artists on The Gradient Perspective to be able to come and share our music, including: Agent Zero, Thought Process, Beat Kitty and Mcwavy.
