So we’ve found ourselves at the beginning of the 2018 festival season and while most of us are gearing up for a few days in the Miami sunshine next month, I’m here to tell you to start flexing those fingers first and sign up for your Electric Zoo presale code. You know, the one that gives you access to amazing presale ticket prices and special gifts for early birds? Precisely! And they go on sale this Thursday at 11am EST, so act fast!
Those of you who have been to EZoo in the past know exactly what this festival offers – an amazing lineup, epic food choices (still looking at you, Big Mozz…), and the best of times with the best of friends under the world-famous New York City skyline. Those of you who are new to the Zoo, what a better time to pop that cherry than for the Festival’s 10th Anniversary? We all know this is going to be the biggest and baddest year yet, so get your ticket purchases out of the way so you can perfect your favorite zoo animal costume for this epic event over Labor Day 2018. Can you think of any other way to end your summer???
2018 marks New York City’s pre-eminent electronic music festival Electric Zoo’s 10th birthday and be sure that it will be the biggest, wildest fiesta ever thrown down in its history. Taking place August 31, September 1 & 2 at Randall’s Island Park, ELECTRIC ZOO: THE BIG 10 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. Presale launches this Thursday, February 15 at 11:00am ET at http://presale.electriczoo.com.
All those moons ago, who would have 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? Since then, Electric Zoo has been welcome across the globe with the brand touching down in such far off places as Shanghai, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Mexico City.
From its 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, Electric Zoo: The Big Ten celebrates what a ride it’s been.
