New York Citys festival scene is all but dominated by hip-hop and indie music (and now Dave Matthews). Over the past two Labor Day weekends, however, Electric Zoo has done its part to bring the electronic scene to the forefront, and it just keeps getting bigger. This years edition continues the expansion by adding a day and featuring a lineup of over 100 acts. 30 more of those have just been added, and according to the press-release, theyre all headliners.
Joining the already announced TiÃ«sto on Friday, September 2nd will be Moby (DJ set), Benny Benassi, Rusko, and Tiga. MSTRKRFT, Richie Hawtin’s Plastikman, Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Crookers and Martin Solveig will play the three other stages on day one.
Day two sees Above & Beyond, Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77, John Digweed, and Sander van Doorn leading into David Guetta on the Main Stage. Ferry Corsten, ATB, Luciano, Danny Tenaglia, Skrillex, and Super Mash Bros are also set for Saturday.
Sunday the 4th features the previously revealed Armin van Buuren topping the bill, with Afrojack, Chromeo, DJ Snoopadelic, and Calvin Harris filling out the Main Stage roster. Other acts for the day include Boys Noize, Diplo, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Infected Mushroom, and Gabriel & Dresden.
Tickets are currently on-sale, with 3-day GA passes going for $249 and VIP (21+) for $499, though prices increase if you add parking passes or ferry tickets. The event takes place on Randalls Island Park, so paying a bit extra might just be necessary. Platinum Experience tickets (also 21+) include one or the other, but will put a $999 dent in your bank account. Click over to the festivals website to purchase passes and for further information.
