Full Moon Fest is back for a fifth edition, happening this year at new venue Brooklyn Mirage on August 1 with Yelle, Tensnake, MOTHXR and more set to perform. Tickets are on sale now and the full lineup is listed below.
As for Brooklyn Mirage, it's a new warehouse-esque space located somewhere around Scott Ave & Randolph St. in Bushwick (off the Jefferson L stop) and is being described by FMF as:
Surrounded by 20 foot high living walls and adorned with tropical flora, euphoric misters, and beach sand from the South of France, the Brooklyn Mirage is a true oasis. A lush urban jungle with both indoor and outdoor spaces, the temporary pop-up reveals panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and presents an empty canvas for us to inspire, design, and produce a live music experience like nothing we've done before.Brooklyn Mirage is set to debut on July 4 with a party featuring Tale Of Us, Bedouin, Mike Khoury, and Canson (tickets). There are also a couple other events coming up: Lee Burridge and friends will be there for an All Day I Dream party on July 12 (tickets); and Dixon (Innervisions), Âme (Innervisions), Solar, Naveen G, Taimur and more will be on July 25 (tickets)

The New York portion of EDM festival Electric Daisy Carnival happens this weekend at NYC-area venue MetLife Stadium (5/24 & 5/25) with many of the usual EDM big players but some more interesting stuff too like AraabMuzik, Rudimental, Skream and more. In what also seems like a pretty interesting move, Williamsburg hot spot Output will be hosting two afterparties and a pre-party that are taking an old school approach, including many veterans of NYC's '90s rave and club scene.
The first night (5/23) includes Swedish techno vet Adam Beyer joined by three NYC vets: Francois K who got his start in the '90s at Paradise Garage and Studio 54 and currently runs the Deep Space party, Frankie Bones who helped bring rave culture to the US, and Lenny Dee, another of NYC's earliest DJs and a past collaborator of Frankie Bones. I don't know often they still play together, but in the early 90s, hardcore techno fans saw a lot of LD & FB. Tickets are on sale now.
Then the next night (5/24) has John Digweed, once famous for his DJ nights at Twilo with Sasha in the '90s, Alex Graham, another regular at Twilo parties, Canadian duo Art Department (aka legendary techno/house vet Kenny Glasgow and newer-comer Jonny White), and Nicolas Matar, founder of NYC dance club Cielo (home of Francois K's Deep Space parties). (Tickets.)
Then on the last night (5/25) it's less NYC-centric with Berlin's Tale of Us (aka Karm & Matteo Milleri) and Ireland's Chymera. (Tickets.)

In addition to Kastle, the lineup features AraabMuzik, Rudimental, Skream, Claude Vonstroke, MK, Boys Noize, Calvin Harris and more. Tickets are on sale now. Full lineup below.
Kastle also plays a FREE NYC show sooner than that on April 5 at Slake (251 W. 30th St) with Druid Cloak, Figgy, Alex English and guests. As long as you RSVP, entry is free until midnight. Show flyer for that show, and the list of all tour dates, below...
