As far as electronic music festivals on the east coast go, there are few bigger and better than Electric Zoo. This year will mark the 10th anniversary of New York City’s biggest EDM festival, and what better way to celebrate the big 10 year mark than with a beautiful rebrand and some much-needed festival announcements.
The festival will take place Friday, August 31st to September 2nd at Randall’s Island Park. The pre-sale will kick off this Thursday at 11am ET here, so be sure to set your clocks. Pre-sale attendees will get first access to after-parties, line-skips, plus a special limited edition wristband to celebrate 10 years of Electric Zoo.
Check out the full announcement below.
All those moons ago, who’da thought that the weekender that roared to life on NYC’s Randall’s Island in 2009 —which featured a fresh faced deadmau5, a pre-cake Aoki and the late-great Frankie Knuckles—would become a household name in the global dance festival scene? ?We’ve come a long, long way together, through the hard times and the good. From our earliest expeditions through the chaotic urban jungle, to scaling the feral lands of the Wild Island, and getting our minds blown by the gritty 6th Boro. What a ride it’s been! ?Since our first outing in 2009, we’ve been welcome all across the globe, taking our brand to Shanghai, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, and Mexico City. ????????But New York City, baby, you’ll always be our home. ?From your great gleaming skyscrapers to your filthy-a** subway. The neon lights of Time Square to the fading memories of Coney Island. From the famous fuggedaboutit wiseguys to the lifelong friendships forged on dance floors. New York, you are the Big Apple in our eye, and our constant source of inspiration. It’s been an honor to make you dance. ?2018 is Electric Zoo’s 10th birthday, and we’re going to make sure that this is the biggest, wildest fiesta that we’ve ever thrown down! #EZooTen will be a blow-out of epic proportions, featuring the world’s finest DJs and most mind-melting production in the heart of The City That Never Sleeps. ?We can’t wait to dance with you at Electric Zoo: The Big Ten! ?
