Since its inception, BEMF has striven to blur genre boundaries and push past notions of underground and commercial in order to simply present artists that need to be heard in NYC. As such it has championed diverse artists like Hudson Mohawke, Nicolas Jaar and The Black Madonna, well before they burst into popular conscience.
BEMF also seeks to provide a platform for those in the electronic music industry to discuss ideas, the issues and challenges they face, and to celebrate its unique artists. BEMF will host daily daytime panel sessions, and fireside chats hosted with BEMF’s media partner, VICE’s dance music platform, THUMP, and music technology company, Novation.
BEMF’s programming extends beyond the traditional two-day festival experience with two pre-parties opening the proceedings on Thursday, November 5th, and a closing morning brunch on November 8th. This year BEMF will also bring back their official after-hours programming, kicking off Saturday at midnight, and running through Sunday sunrise.
