Skream, Tong & More to Heat Up Brooklyn This Weekend at BEMF 2013

Are you planning on being around Brooklyn this weekend? If not, maybe you should consider grabbing some last-minute plane/train/bus tickets right now, because the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival is hosting some serious underground talent.

In addition to a special kickoff party at Output this Thursday, BEMF spans three nights from Friday, Nov. 8, to Sunday, Nov. 10, with multiple stacked parties at favorite Williamsburg spots Output, 285 Kent (all ages), Music Hall of Williamsburg, Cameo, Villain, and Glasslands. The venues are all within several blocks of each other, so festival-goers can easily hop between parties–and trust me, you’ll want to.

For the festival’s sixth year, MeanRed has curated an impressive lineup of both well-established and up-and-coming artists from across genres, including Skream, Todd Terje, XXXY, Star Slinger, Pete Tong, DJ Sliink, Jerome LOL, and many more. Don’t expect an EDC-style rave; BEMF is a showcase of alternative and underground electronic music in Brooklyn and abroad, so the parties will be filled with tastemakers scoping out the next best sounds.

Three-day passes (which include access to the pre-party on Thursday and the Rinsed after-party on Saturday) are on sale now for $135, but you can also purchase day passes and individual tickets for each show. Can’t make it to Brooklyn in time? Boiler Room has you covered–they’ll be streaming live all weekend.
