Elements Music Festival Attendees Share Experience: 10+ Hour Waits For Camping Arrivals, Oversold Tickets, & More

Editors Note: The first version of this article contained incorrect information regarding an artist involved with the festival. That information was not verified and has since been removed. We apologize for the error. 

Elements Music Festival returned another year for the 3-day music, arts, and camping festival that, according to their website, “features a private lake, rolling hills, and a magical forest.” While these environmental amenities sound great on a regular, sunny day, the venue in Lakewood, PA was not spared by Hurricane Ida and received immense rainfall prior to this weekend’s event.

What Elements Music Festival is going through is what Bonnaroo avoided when they canceled this year’s festival last week. Hurricane Ida brought unsafe conditions to the campground and venue in Lakewood. 

On the lineup for Elements, this year was a wide range of notable artists including GRiZ, Chris Lake, Ganja White Night, Bob Moses, and more. So far, no artists have addressed the issues guests are tweeting about on social media. 

Check out some of the issues mentioned about this weekend’s festival below:

And for those that experienced the terribly long waits, Elements Music Festival shared a response on social media towards the issue with an apology, but no follow-up.

For those heading out tomorrow, the Lakewood area is expected to receive more rain tonight. Their team did share on social media that they have “made additional preparations to provide extra shuttles and box trucks” and that they will be “allowing guests to stay on-site until 8pm tomorrow.” 

Stay safe to all of our fam out there!
