This year every single stage is a brand new design, specially created for Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro.
Main Stage ("The Elephant's Roar")
The main stage is the skyscraper-packed heart of our city. A massive elephant that thunders down the avenue, the stage is replete with luminous wires carrying the energy of the party through the metropolis, pumping out sound that drowns out the background din of honking horns and shouting neighbors, so we can all just lose ourselves in the music.
Hilltop Arena (Friday & Saturday: "6th Boro Station" / Sunday: elrow presents Bollywood)
Hilltop Arena is the 6th Boro subway station, designed for the wildest of party animals, and equipped with stunning visuals and electrifying decor. Nobody's leaving this stop because the party here never ends.
On Sunday, elrow's Bollywood takes over the Hilltop Arena. In a kaleidoscopic explosion of color, Ibiza's #1 party brings the theatrical flamboyance of the cinematic movement to the 6th Boro.
Riverside ("Undersea Dome")
Tap into your imagination, and enter our deep-sea district, where a massive underwater dome, shrouded in a surreal otherworldly light show, is filled with bioluminescent sea creatures and surrounded by exotic coral reef.
Welcome to the industrial zone of The 6th Boro, where the Dutch techno festival Awakenings constructed their stage, bringing their signature production and a legendary lineup to our neck of the woods.
Our tribute to the now-defunct 5 Pointz, a place that served as a mecca to graffiti artists from New York and around the world. Witness the best of New York's local artists showcase their musical and street art talents.
