Electric Zoo returns to New York on Labor Day weekend with performances from Kx5, The Chainsmokers, Major Lazer, Alison Wonderland, three sets from GRiZ (including a back-to-back with Zeds Dead), John Summit, Zedd and more.
The three day festival takes place on Randall’s Island Park, with this year with a Hyperspace theme. Electric Zoo marks the first time Kaskade and deadmau5’s Kx5 project performs in New York City, with Kaskade also playing a sunset solo set in a journey through his career’s discography. The newly unveiled lineup features 83 sets total with six stage takeovers from Fisher and Chris Lake (showcasing the festival debut of brand, Under Construction), John Summit and Dom Dolla (debuting their new brand Everything Always for the very first time), Jake Reniscow’s Dream Land (unveiling Electric Zoo’s inaugural LGBTQ+ stage), Liquid Stranger’s Wakaan Takeover, Cityfox and Gray Area presenting Megafox and Nora En Pure’s Purified.
“I have not witnessed such a thriving and expansive electronic music community in the Big Apple since Electric Zoo’s inception 14 years ago,” Michael Julian, the festival’s chief of marketing, said in a statement. “We can’t wait to welcome the most vibrant and energetic crowd yet this Labor Day Weekend to party together with the Electric Zoo community, artists, industry players, and festival travelers from around the world, forging an unparalleled celebration in the heart of New York City.”
A new stage, Mega-Mirage, is also being introduced to the festival this year. The new setup promises a larger-than-life experience. From bass music to techno, multi-genre, tech house, melodic and more, Electric Zoo’s lineup features a diverse range of dance music’s subgenres to provide something for everyone.
