Festival Description

The Annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival is a multi-night, multi-venue takeover on North 6th street in the heart of Williamsburg that takes place each November. Since its inception in 2008, BEMF has established itself as Brooklyn’s most influential genre bending musical event by bringing together fans from across the US to celebrate this city’s electronic musical landscape proudly featuring both emerging and established artists from the boroughs and beyond sharing the same stage. Produced by the always progressive MeanRed, BEMF is rapidly becoming an NYC mainstay as a homegrown festival with an international audience.
