Last year I went to New York City to cover Electric Zoo, New York’s electronic dance music festival. I was there the year before, but last year was much bigger featuring much bigger names. Guys like Tiesto and David Guetta played for thousands of screaming dancing fans over Labor Day weekend. I won’t be there this year, as I will be in Europe over Labor Day weekend, but I was excited when the official trailer for Electric Zoo 2012 came out last week. If you live anywhere near New York City, or have the interest in seeing the Big Apple and hearing some of the best DJs in the world, check out Electric Zoo. It happens on Randall’s Island, and while it is only been around for a few years is already becoming one of the best festivals in the world. If you go, make sure to stay hydrated as it gets really hot out there… but man, is it fun. You can follow all of the action on Twitter by using the hashtag #EZoo. Check out the video below. Let’s dance, people!
Tickets Now On Sale
Tickets for the 2012 Electric Zoo are now available. Tickets for Saturday and Sunday (single day general admission) are almost sold out, so act fast. Electric Zoo sold out last year, and based on current ticket sales will sell out again this year.
