Letâ€™s grab our dancing shoes and get ready for Electric Zoo! Next weekend I will be traveling to New York City for this memorable two-day music festival featuring some of the biggest names in electronic dance music. Guys like Armin van Buuren, Pretty Lights, Axwell, Fedde Le Grand, and Benny Benassi will be there as well as sets by Moby, the Chemical Brothers, and more. There are over seventy artists scheduled to perform on various stages with sets starting as early as eleven in the morning.
This two-day music festival takes place in Randallâ€™s Island Park just outside of Manhattan and promises to be two days of unforgettable dance music. The weather even looks perfect looking at the extended forecast.
Thatâ€™s not all. When the fun stops at the zoo, it continues at Pacha for the official after party. Both nights feature some top name DJs with a surprise main stage guest DJ on Sunday night. Pacha is said to be one of the best dance clubs in the world and I will be there giving you all the inside scoop.
So this week, be on the lookout for a lot of articles regarding Electric Zoo. I will be doing show previews, show reviews, artist interviews, and more as we get closer to Labor Day weekend and as we move through most of next week. There is so much to say I donâ€™t even know where to begin. I just wanted you all to know why the blog will be turned from a potpourri of topics to a more focused collection of EDM and dance music posts. But never fear, I will be tossing in various articles all week long for those of you out there that donâ€™t listen to dance music.
But get excited because I leave on Friday for a weekend of some of the best dance music this planet has to offer in the city that never sleeps. Iâ€™m headed to the zoo!
