Electric Zoo has only been around for a few years, but has quickly become one of the biggest and best electronic dance music festivals in the world. Some 85,000 people came out to dance the day away this year. It didn’t seem like there were that many people there, compared to last year, but they spread it out over three days this year, allowing more time for people to get their fix. I was there last year, and it was two days of beats from some of the biggest names on the planet including Above & Beyond and Armin van Buuren. But like I said, this year it was three days, packing in even more music and adding tons of names to the list like David Guetta, 12th Planet, ATB, Dirty South, John Digweed, Sander van Doorn, and many more. The event is held each year on Randall’s Island in New York City.
