For the past five years, the festival took place at San Antonio Reservoir Recreation Area in Bradley, California; and the last two years were met tragically with the death of a festival attendee at each. Now, the festival has moved to a new venue at Buena Vista Lake in Central California, with lush, green pastures, a shaded tree line, and accessible shoreline that’s sure to bring festival-goers in full force.

Disclosure rocked the world early in 2018 when they announced they would be taking an indefinite hiatus from performing live. By the end of the year, it was clear that the break was well worth it for fans when the brothers cranked out a series of funky and outstanding new singles. Disclosure has started to
Khalid‘s latest single “Talk,” has officially hit the Beats 1 Radio airwaves. The brand new Disclosure-produced collaboration is a soulful rendition that evokes feelings of stillness. Veteran radio host Zane Lowe spoke with Khalid in regards to the song’s meaning, ahead of the track’s debut.
Khalid eloquently explained that “Talk” is set in the honeymoon stage of a relationship. The track itself calmly reflects on the importance of awareness and the communication one must engage in to move forward as the intensity of love settles in. With a voice so unique that it simply cannot be mimicked, Khalid croons, “Can’t we just talk? Talk about where we’re going/Before we get lost/Let me out fast/Can’t get what we want without knowing.” Disclosure’s production backdrop serves up the dreamy yet steady beat for Khalid’s words and emotion to swim through. Khalid said, “It’s one of my favorite songs I have ever been a part of.”
“Talk” is the lead single off Khalid’s upcoming sophomore album, which the El Paso sensation announced would be released before his upcoming performance at Coachella.
The young genre-blending El Paso singer-songwriter Khalid became a bona fide pop star on the strength of his debut American Teen and the zillion collaborations he’s released since. One of those songs, a track with Calvin Harris and Future, made me a fan. But lately, in his Suncity EP and elsewhere, he’s been … More »
Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.
If Disclosure can successfully introduce a house beat to the lyrics of “Fools Rush In,” you can thwart the end-of-weekend demons. “Where Angels Fear To Tread,” off the duo’s forthcoming project, offers a litany of lush strings, jazz acapella vocal samples, and a highly medicinal bass line.
Head to British songstress Litany’s ’80s-inspired “Bedroom” for a full-bodied breath of electronic-pop therapy. Her wistful vocals float over softly jubilant production infused with an island effect, complements of the track’s wavering marimba synth.
Lane 8‘s latest and first of 2019, “Visions” is just as it sounds. “Visions” is benevolently scheduled under DA’s “highly potent hallucinogens,” with its deliberate, rousing beat and a fluttering, euphoria-procuring synth line, like fractals dancing in the night.
Like so many of Bonobo‘s creations, “Second Sun” exudes a subtle, twinkling majesty. Its melancholy-hopeful instrumentals set the tone for the week ahead.
Louis Futon‘s most recent offering leading up to his new album, “Supposed To Be” caps this week’s Sunday Morning Medicine on a soothing note. DUCKWRTH and BAEGOD’s feel-good rhymes remind listeners of better weather and easy living.
As Elements Lakewood Music & Arts Festival looks ahead to its third iteration with the release of its 2019 lineup, the expression “the third time’s a charm” is particularly apt. Boasting a number of heavy hitters hailing from the house genre, Elements Lakewood’s lineup will bring Disclosure, FISHER, Shiba San, and Justin Martin to Elements’ Pennsylvania home, to script a bumping next chapter in the festival’s history of production. Spanning more than 100 artists in its totality, the festival’s 2019 lineup also sees Elements Lakewood organizers issue noteworthy nods to Big Gigantic, Sofi Tukker, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, and Clozee, among other artists.
A favorite among camping enthusiasts, Elements Lakewood will once more blend talent from techno, bass, jam rock, funk, and other sub-genres on a sprawling 200-acre campground that offers attendees five different stages of musical diversion. Complete with wellness activities like aromatherapy and sunset yoga, not to mention a myriad of camp games including basketball and volleyball, Elements Lakewood ensures that attendees won’t spend a single second of their time at the event idle. In a credit to the diversity of Elements Lakewood’s offerings, event-goers will also have the opportunity to partake in kayak trips at sunset, water sports like canoeing and swimming, and post-dusk adventures like a stroll through a kaleidoscope light-decorated forest.
Back to offer the ultimate soul renewal experience in its seamless intermingling of outdoor fun and good music, Elements Lakewood is a bona fide must attend for 2019.
A limited number of early bird three-day GA and VIP passes to the festival’s 2019 edition are now available and can be purchased here.

Disclosure wins the hearts of fans not only with their grooving albums, but also with animated and energetic live shows. After playing the festival circuit and embarking on multiple world tours after the release of Caracal and Settle, their three concerts in 2017 and 2018 combined left fans itching for more performances. However, Disclosure has now announced that they will be playing Sonár Festival in Barcelona in the summer of 2019.
After releasing five songs this year and confirming a new album, likely coming in 2019, their upcoming performances are sure to be packed to the brim with new material. In a tweet announcing the show, the duo referred to 2019 as a “special year for [them],” and said they’ll be “doing something very different to what [they’ve] done before.” With new music and shows lined up for next year, an updated live set-up may be in the works as well. Hopefully, this is the first of many announcements from the beloved British duo.
2019 is going to be special year for us, we’re going to be doing something very different to what we’ve done before. @SonarFestival is pivotal moment of our summer and a show we’ve always wanted to play. We can’t wait!! pic.twitter.com/J9q1hSOmt0
While premiering “Where You Come From” on Annie Mac‘s BBC Radio 1, the duo disclosed their imminent third album and how these tracks fit in.
“We seem to be back right now. It’s definitely been a while. 100 percent an album is being made – that’s for sure. Whether or not these songs make it [on the album] is yet to be seen. We’ve been writing a lot. We reckon we’ve put together about 80 to 100 different ideas over the past year, but we have no idea which of them, if any, will actually be on the album. It’s a serious track listing job to come now. Now we’re going to start moving onto the next step and start working with some vocalists.”
It didn’t take long for the Disclosure boys to climb their way right back into the center of the electronic music news cycle. With the massive volume of material released each week, a unique release strategy (or maybe lack thereof) is becoming an art in itself, and with their surprising week of back-to-back drops, Disclosure seem well on the comeback trail now. The pair’s previous album, Caracal, was released in 2015. After that, the Lawrence brothers decided to take time off in 2017, though it seems their hiatus is over in the tail end of 2018.
