One of LiveStyle's flagship festivals, ELECTRIC ZOO, completed its ninth annual turn as Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro on Randall's Island in NYC over this past Labor Day Weekend. Over three days (September 1-3), 90,000+ fans attended New York's largest and longest-running electronic music festival which was headlined by DJ Snake, Above & Beyond, deadmau5 & Eric Prydz, ZEDD, Galantis and Armin van Buuren.
NYC's biggest Labor Day Weekend party took place in the 6th Boro, where fans danced to some of the world's biggest artists across five never-before-seen stunning stages reflecting zoo and NYC themes (an elephant, aquarium and 6th Boro subway stop) with breathtaking light shows and spectacular pyrotechnics, interactive installations and art, 30+ New York's best food vendors and much more. New friends and magical memories were created in this utopian dance-tropolis under the lights of the New York City skyline.
Attendees were also treated to curated stages by European nightlife brands Awakenings and the 'Bollywood' themed elrow (for their only North American festival appearance) as well as artists Jauz and Dada Life, who used ELECTRIC ZOO to catapult their respective brands, Off The Deep End and Dada Life Compound, into the festival space. In all, almost 100 DJs performed over the weekend.
ELECTRIC ZOO: THE 6th BORO-an homage to NYC, the Greatest City In The World-proved to be the most successful Electric Zoo since 2014 when LiveStyle (previously SFX) added the festival and its parent company Made Event to its portfolio. The brand has enjoyed two years of sustained growth and is proof that electronic music is alive and well in the Greater New York Metropolitan area.
Look for ELECTRIC ZOO to return in 2018 to celebrate its 10-year anniversary.
Check out ELECTRIC ZOO: THE 6th BORO reactions from the press and performers:
"...Electric Zoo 2017 brought sunny skies, comfortable dancing temperatures and plenty of memorable moments from the heavy bass drops of Sub Focus to the 138-bpm, '90s-style trance of Armin van Buuren. Even with a massive crowd and some mud from the previous day's rain, the last day of the 6th Boro-as this year was themed-turned upside down, inside out and grooved to the endless beats. "
- Zoe Levy, Time Out New York (9/4/17)
"Day 3 brought Elrow to the Hilltop Stage, a three-hour Dixon set, deadmau5and Eric Prydz going back-to-back to close out the mainstage and leaving all mainstream music behind, Jauz hosting his own Off The Deep End stage and much more...
you will be hard pressed to find someone frowning at the end of that."
- Ryan Middleton, Billboard (9/4/17)
"There are five stages at EZoo 2017, and on Friday 28 different acts--including Snails, DJ Snake, Dada Life, and Sasha & John Digweed--made the big crowds shuffle, bounce, head-bang, mosh, or bliss out, depending. The main stage comes complete with a massive elephant head, and the two other smaller outdoor venues feature an aquatic theme (the "Riverside" stage) and a "gritty graffiti" vibe at 6 Pointz...EZoo has the whole festival thing down pat, and the day was a total blast."
- Scott Lynch, Gothamist (9/2/17)
"Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro absolutely exploded with talent over the weekend as DJ Snake, Galantis, Dada Life, Sasha & John Digweed, Above & Beyond, ZEDD, Excision, Seven Lions, Armin van Buuren, Jauz, deadmau5 b2b Eric Prydz and so many more hit the stage! That's really just scratching the surface on the amazing mix of music and artists the festival experienced with its 9th installment."
- Katie Powell, Your EDM (9/4/17)
"You're beautiful @electriczoony"
- Armin van Buuren, via Twitter (9/2/17)
