WHAT’S SO BROOKLYN ABOUT BEMF?
We believe that Brooklyn has a very special vibe. It has grown into one of the most important dance music cities in the world, and we love making it our home. We think there is something really special about grabbing one wristband and running around the streets of Williamsburg, Bushwick and Red Hook and being able to experience the people you meet on the sidewalk, next to a big speaker in the club, or at the food truck parked on the corner. It’s a true Brooklyn way of life.

That’s not all though. We have worked hard to make sure all of our talent is connected to our city. They may not all hail from here, but they may have had their first gig here, have a label here, or have friends and family here.  We also made sure to give Brooklyn crews a lot of love.  Here are some to check out:

Mainstay parties that BEMF is hosting include: The Bunker, Deviation and more!

BEMF AGE RESTRICTIONS
All BEMF festival passes and venues are 21+ with ONE EXCEPTION - Music Hall of Williamsburg, which is 18+. 
 

VENUE CAPACITY - GET TO YOUR STAGES EARLY!
Each of our venues have a set legal capacity, and we must honor that. Once a room is full, we will have to hold the door until people leave and we can allow more people to enter.

What does that mean? Want to see someone play? GET THERE EARLY - BEFORE THEIR SET!  

If for some reason a venue hits capacity before you get there, we know you might have missed someone you want to see, but we promise, we took great care to make sure that every other minute of music happening at that moment is incredible and if you walk to one of our other 8 venues you will leave satisfied.
