Held on New York City’s Randall’s Island, Electric Zoo is the city’s most well-known electronic music festival since its launch in 2009. More than 100,000 people will congregate on the island for Labor Day weekend to see their favorite DJs across the entire spectrum of electronic music.
This year’s E-Zoo is held in partnership with ID&T, the Dutch production house behind Tomorrowland, Sensation and the now defunct Thunderdome. The festival is re-launching with a Transformed theme, making the festival bigger and more intense with elaborate stage production, art installations and a revamped, interactive environment.
This year’s main headliners are Above & Beyond who just released their third album earlier this year; The Chemical Brothers who just returned to the scene with Born in the Echoes; and Alesso who closes out the festival on Sunday. Other artists performing on the festival’s four stages include BBC’s Pete Tong on his own Sunday School Grove stage; hard-style favorite Headhunterz on the Mastercard Hilltop Arena; trance legend Ferry Corsten on the Riverside stage; and many more.
This year’s Electric Zoo will be held September 4–6. Tickets currently start at $89 for a Friday pass, and can apparently reach $650,000 according to TMZ, which attributed the purchase to poker player Dan Bilzerian. The package includes a private VIP deck, passes for 200 guests and a personal pyrotechnics controller, though most of the bill is actually liquor, totaling about $500,000.
