Electric Zoo Festival Tickets News
4-21-14: The Electric Zoo has been making headlines in the New York area due to a campaign to get the music festival back into New York or New Jersey. The festival was infamously shut down early last year after multiple problems including two drug related deaths. Before the shut down, last year's event on Randall's Island averaged $463 for a 3 day pass.
Electric Zoo Festival History
A staple in the heart of the electronic music scene, the Electric Zoo Festival has been held annually on Randall’s Island in New York City each year since 2009. The festival has gained critical acclaim in its infancy stages, being cited as the “Best Music Event” between 2010 and 2013 and expanding from its two-day format to three days in 2011. It is typically held on Labor Day Weekend each year, signifying the final blowout festival of the summer.
The inaugural year of the Electric Zoo Festival featured 55 artists over two days, including headlining performances from David Guetta, Deadmau5, Kaskade and Tiga, and turned out to be overwhelmingly successful. The festival grew to accommodate 66 artists the following year and featured more than 100 artists by 2011. That year, more than 85,000 people were in attendance for the first three-day affair, an 80,000+ increase from its first year in 2009.
By 2012, attendance grew to greater than 110,000. Headlining acts included Skrillex, David Guetta, Tiesto, Porter Robinson, Above & Beyond and Pretty Lights. The festival was dampened by tragedy in 2013, when two attendees died from hyperthermia after ingesting the popular drug MDMA that has become a common practice at EDM events. The final day of the 2013 Electric Zoo Festival was cancelled in response to the two incidents.
Stricter policies were put in place in 2014, cracking down on bag searching for illegal drugs and implicating more safety awareness programs through Randall’s Island. The final day of the 2014 Electric Zoo Festival was also cancelled, this time due to severe thunderstorms in the Greater New York Metropolitan area.
The festival continues to expand each year, and Mexico City was the first international destination for Electric Zoo in 2014. In 2015, more steps will be taken to ensure the safety of each patron, with concentration on importing more washrooms for fan use.
