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.

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
There are tons of places to hike around the world — possibly even dozen of options just miles from where you currently sit. But some hiking destinations are better than others. Here are a few that will be entirely unforgettable — along with some of the best ways to see them.
Few things in life are as unappealing as smelly shoes. There’s something about the distinctive odor of stanky feet that’s almost vomit-inducing. When you’re traveling, the stench can really sneak up you. Here are some tips for keeping your shoes fresh and ready to stroll.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
