In Case You Missed It: The Elements Music & Art Festival in Photos

by Jules Abraham

This past weekend, people headed from all over the country to Northeast PA for BangOn NYC’s Elements Music & Art Festival which featured chill vibes, self care workshops and a slew of artists.

BUST followed the BAE collective’s transcendent LGBTQIA events throughout the weekend. BAE is a female identifying, cis, trans run collective providing a safe place for artists to come together support and thrive.
