Get out your Ecstasy and glow sticks. It's time for the second annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival! In truly endemic Brooklyn style, the festival will be held in a big, old warehouse—the historic Old American Can Factory, to be exact. Two stages, one inside and one out, will feature headliner The Juan MacLean, acts like Young Love and Jupiter One, and dozens of emerging DJs and other young whippersnappers that dig only the most synthetic of music. A "Very Special Surprise Guest Headliner" will be announced via Twitter (sigh) the day of the show. Technology! If 12 hours of sweaty, sleazy Brooklyn electro seems like a bit much for you, then free PBR is a good incentive to show up early.
