Electric Zoo: New York’s Electronic Music Festival is thrilled to announce the addition of a second Main Stage to celebrate its fifth anniversary as New York’s premiere electronic music festival bringing over 140 of the world’s best talent in dance music to Randall’s Island Park for a three-day summer bash over Labor Day Weekend, August 30, August 31, and September 1.
Five years ago, Electric Zoo stormed onto the scene, bringing electronic dance music to the forefront in New York City. Since then Electric Zoo has seen attendees from 188 countries and all 50 states making the pilgrimage to the greatest city in the world to celebrate electronic dance music with like-minded fans and internationally renowned DJs and live acts. In 2013, Electric Zoo continues to evolve and expand with the addition of a new Main Stage – Main Stage East, for a total of two open-air stages, plus three state-of-the-art tents: The Hilltop, The Riverside and Made Event’s legendary Sunday School Tent. This will all be set in the lush landscape of Randall’s Island, complete with exquisite views of the Manhattan Skyline and the East River.
“Every year we have been committed to improving the Electric Zoo experience for all of our fans. This year we decided to celebrate our fifth year anniversary by going bigger and adding a 2nd main stage with 30 more acts to celebrate our collective passion for dance music.”
- Laura De Palma & Mike Bindra, Founders of Made Event & Creators of Electric Zoo
