Electric Zoo's 13th Edition Was One for the Ages
On Labor Day weekend, Randall's Island welcomed over 100,000 attendees from all over the world for the 13th edition of New York's premier electronic music festival.
This year boasted over 100 international acts, all-new state of the art stages with special effects ranging from lasers to pyro to full on fireworks.
Ezoo spared no expense to make year 13 one of its best years yet.
Many may consider 13 as an unlucky number, but fortune favored the bold, the rave, and the ever eternal house music this year as guests packed another sold out Electric Zoo. This year, the main stage saw acts like Diplo, Slander, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, John Summit, and many more pack out the upgraded dance floor throughout the weekend. Guests came and danced away all their worries from noon til night non-stop. Each stage had its own party going on and this year, Ezoo made sure to take care of that sound leak that often plagues festivals of this magnitude.
The Landing created the perfect immersive experience for guests, giving the sensation of being in an outdoor rave warehouse tucked away in the woods. Seeing the likes of Malaa, Tchami, DJ Diesel, Loco Dice, Svdden Death, and the legendary Carl Cox.
The Levitron stage took guests on inter-dimensional trips with lasers, pyro, led screens and heavy hitting acts that transported the senses far, far away. Mersiv, Clozee, Canabliss, Wreckno and A Hundred Drums.
Brownies and Lemonade made their 4th appearance at Ezoo this year, hosting acts on the out-of-this-world Morphosis stage Friday night. Memba, G Jones, b2b Eprom, and Apsahe gave attendees a glimpse into what was to come from the rest of the festival grounds. Perfectly positioned by the main entrance, The Morphosis stage made sure to welcome guests with acts like Kyle Walker, Blossom, Meli Rodriguez, and more as well as be sure to keep the party going for guests as they exited the festival grounds.
All in all, year 13 proved to be yet another unforgettable experience for all that attended, and undoubtedly made that trip across the bridge worth it.
