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)

We were just talking about a new dance club that will be known for its soundsystem opening in Williamsburg (and the "new Brooklyn electronic underground"), but let's take a second to acknowledge a NYC club with similar specs that has been going strong for a decade. Cielo (18 Little West 12th Street) is celebrating its 10th anniversary in existence with events all month. They also were just named "Best Sound System in North America" by Beatport.
With two down and eight celebratory nights still to go, the party continues tonight (1/18) with Wolf + Lamb vs Soul Clap which is sold out; and moves on to tomorrow (1/19) with Tania Vulcano, Willie Graff, and + Filsonik before finally polishing off the weekend with Horse Meat Disco on Sunday (1/20). Another weekend of events follows, leading up to the finale with Todd Terje & Danny Krivit on 1/31. Tickets to all those shows (apart from tonight's) are still available.
Congrats to Cielo! Full listing of 10th Anniversary events are below.
"The Snow Ball Music Festival [in 2011] was chill, in more ways than one. Besides the expected below freezing temperatures Avon gets in early March, the atmosphere of the festival and attitude of the attendees were very relaxed. The tents were set up on snow instead of concrete, and so dancing the first night was no small fete as everyone was slipping on the ice. By the end of the weekend, any movement at all was unpleasant as people were standing in puddles of water, beer, and probably some bodily fluids or stuck to the ground in thick mud. The crowd left their clubbing attire at home and sported their neon ski coats instead as they drifted through the clouds of cigarette and marijuana smoke. Despite the cold weather and the impossible dance floor, most importantly, the music was good." [cause=time]The SnowBall Music Festival, for people not afraid to watch bands playing outside in freezing temperatures ("We recommend that you come prepared for snow and winter conditions. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 40° range during the day and in the teens at night. Please dress accordingly."), is returning to Vail Valley in Avon, CO from March 2 - 4, 2012. This year's lineup includes Big Boi, Big Freedia, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (who just announced a Bowery Ballroom show), Deer Tick, Gauntlet Hair, Major Lazer, TV on the Radio, Thundercat, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and others (listed below)
