Get ready to let your inner animal run wild this Labor Day weekend because NYC’s wildest party is about to throw down for it’s 10th anniversary this August 31st-September 2nd! New York is one of the most unique and iconic cities in the world, and for the past nine years the “6th Boro”, Randall’s Islands Park, has been the designated home of Electric Zoo Festival (and one of my ultimate favorite events of the year). With plenty of grassy spots to kick back and watch the sunset over of the city skyline, the venue is beyond memorable. Whether a local or first time visitor, Zoo is truly an escape haven from the tough streets of NYC’s concrete jungle.
This years lineup hosts headliners as big as the skyscrapers in Times Square. Some of the big name artists to see at main stage include Virtual Self (Porter Robinson’s alias), Kaskade, Alesso, Illenium, and Rezz. Artist spotlight goes to Brohug, considering they played last year at Riverside Stage, these guys are making serious waves in the EDM industry. I first saw them at last year’s Zoo, and will definitely not be missing them this year. Now, lets talk about the epic Andrew Bayer B2b Ilan Bluestone B2b Jason Ross set that is going down Sunday at Riverside Stage. And yes you read that right, Andrew Bayer B2b Ilan Bluestone B2b Jason Ross … I don’t even know how to begin to describe the epicness, the absurdity, and just plain awesomeness of this collaboration, so just be there or be square.
Other notable mentions include Ekali, Troyboi, Destructo, Anna Lunoe, and Mija. Not only is this lineup beyond stacked with amazing artists but the vibe of the attendees, layout, and overall breathtaking experience of New York City makes Electric Zoo a must attend festival.
