Electric Zoo Festival Rocks NYC This Labor Day Weekend


Awesome electronica, house, techno, whatever you like to call it, it’s coming hardcore and it’s coming this weekend! Electric Zoo presents NYC’s first serious techtronic fest, and from 11am til 11pm each day of the jam, you can enjoy the sounds of the likes of David Guetta, Danny Tenaglia, the world famous Armin van Buuren, and many more on the lovely banks of Randall’s Island. Enjoy some house beats? Check out Benny Benassi. Dig the poppier beats? ATB will be in the house, or rather island, too!

According to their site:

New York’s premiere electronic music production team Made Event presents the next chapter in their ongoing success story of top-quality electronic music events. This Labor Day weekend on Saturday, September 5th and Sunday, September 6th, 2009, ELECTRIC ZOO will transform Randall’s Island Park into an open-air music festival with the world’s biggest electronic music talent spanning the globe.

The principals of Made Event, Mike Bindra and Laura De Palma explain their vision for the festival, “We have been inspired over the years by what happens in Europe each summer, and we’re very excited to be bringing our version to America; Electric Zoo, New York’s first electronic music festival. Our intention is to showcase the top artists in each of the sub-genres, there will be something for everyone – a literal ‘zoo’ of electronic music. For us, this is the culmination of many years of dedication and hard work. The realization of this goal is another step forward for electronic music here, and we’re laying the foundation for many years to come.”
