Electric Zoo is one of the biggest and best music festivals that New York has to offer. Every Labor Day weekend, Randalls Island is shaken by wobbly bass, heavy drops, and deep synths when some of the biggest names in EDM descend on New York.
Entering its ninth year, Electric Zoo has only grown and improved. The festival is held on the popular Randalls Island (also known as Festival Island) on the Upper Eastside of New York. There is no shortage of ways to get to the festival, from taking a ferry across the river and admiring the Manhattan skyline, to walking the bridge or simply taking a subway or a ubiquitous New York yellow cab. For the entire Labor Day weekend, the island is transformed into a raver's paradise.
Electric Zoo is touted as New York's premiere electronic music festival, and with the lineup that was released for the 2017 festival, Zoogoers both old and new are psyched. Electric Zoo 2017 will be headlined by DJ Snake, Above & Beyond and a special b2b performance by Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz. Electric Zoo will also see the talents of huge names like Galantis, Zedd, Armin van Buuren, Don Diablo, Excision, Jauz, Slushii and more. Featuring four stages curated by Awakenings, Dada Land Compound, Elrow and Off the Deep End, Electric Zoo 2017 is sure to be a hit with newcomers and returnees alike.
For the 2017 edition of Electric Zoo, the theme is The 6th Boro, a nod to the city of New York. For the duration of the festival, there will be a sixth and additional neighborhood in New York, Randalls Island will become the 6th Boro.
E-Zoo will last for the entire Labor Day weekend, from Friday, September 1 until Sunday, September 3. The festival lasts from noon until midnight, but the party continues even after Randalls Island empties. Afterparties are scattered throughout the city, keep an eye on EDM venues like Webster Hall, Marquee NYC, Space Ibiza and Terminal 5 for E-Zoo afterparty information.
The 6th Boro is still two months away, but that's just enough time to get ready for a festival.
