In total there will be over 80 acts at the show, and the music filling Randall’s Island Park will be exclusively EDM.

The festival ends at 11 p.m. each day and is not a camping event, so attendees do need to figure out their own lodging arrangements.

Bassnectar is only listed for five festivals this summer, with no solo shows announced, so his hardcore fans may want to consider heading to NYC for a single-day pass.

Tiësto is in Las Vegas all summer with other shows sprinkled sporadically, but Electric Zoo is his only East Coast date, excluding a date in Miami tonight, May 6.

Hardwell is also mostly appearing at festivals this summer, and with the exception of  in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, the Zoo is his only Northeast show scheduled so far.

Electric Zoo also sponsors a number of other events, such as the  which was held in Miami in March, and events in Tokyo and Mexico City. The New York affair remains one of the brand’s biggest draws though, and it bills itself as “New York’s Premiere Electronic Music Festival.”

Tickets are on sale now with 3-day passes starting at $229 and with different VIP packages available. More information is available at ElectricZooFestival.com
