We’re about halfway through summer, and festivals are still abundant, but there is one in particular that New Yorkers and many others are highly anticipating – Electric Zoo: Wild Island. This year’s themed edition will be returning to the infamous Randall’s Island on September 2nd (Labor Day Weekend) to offer dance music’s finest, including headliners Bassnectar, Tiesto, and Hardwell, as well as Big Gigantic, Gareth Emery, Âme, Datsik, Bicep and more to represent their respective sub-genres. Additionally, U.S.-based labels like Dim Mak and Buygore will be hosting their own stages, while the underground-centric Sunday School stage welcomes trusted European brands such as El Row and Ants for further curation. Electric Zoo is known for its diverse lineups and they’ve pretty much nailed it once again this year.
To get you in the mood for Electric Zoo and give you a taste of what’s to come, the festival has joined forces with Sirius XM to bring you a Thursday night weekly radio show on Electric Area featuring special guests. Headhunterz will be kicking things off tonight at 9 PM ET, so tune in and see who else you can look forward to in the schedule below. Tickets are on sale for Electric Zoo on the festival website, don’t sleep!
