Elements Festival Shares Roadmap of Improvements After Controversial 2021 Event
After a disastrous 2021 edition of Elements Music & Arts Festival, the event's organizers are looking to reconcile with fans and create a safer experience in 2022 after providing a list of changes in a highly detailed roadmap.
As part of a proposed five-point plan, the festival is being relocated from Lakewood, Pennsylvania to Long Pond. Ideally, this will mitigate many of the infrastructure-related challenges the festival faced in 2021, such as exorbitantly long wait times and camping logistics. Long Pond has reportedly hosted events five times the size of Elements.
Organizers have placed new emphasis on safety. They've hired a new board of advisors to help plan the fest as well as hire better-trained staff who are well-equipped to handle scenarios akin to those experienced in 2021. They also plan to improve their communication going forward, according to the roadmap.
"We have listened to and heard you through all of your emails and posts on social media," the roadmap reads. "Transparency in everything we do will be a cornerstone of our work moving forward, and we will continue to listen to build the best version of Elements together."
