“Labor Day weekend in New York means cookouts and parties to see the summer off, and there is no party more epic than Electric Zoo.  The big-ticket EDM festival calls on some of genre’s most recognizable names – Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, Diplo and Skrillex, who plays as Dog Blood in a collaboration with Boys Noize—for the three-day blowout, which encompasses styles
 from dubstep to trance to house.”—Briana Younger, The New Yorker
Electric Zoo: Evolved—New York City’s longest-running and largest electronic music festival—came out of its 11th turn with its most successful show since 2013.  Taking place this Labor Day weekend, Friday, August 30, Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1 at Randall’s Island Park, over 107,000 fans turned out to embrace the sunshine and outstanding sets from over 50 international DJ talents.  Out of the three-day event, Saturday and Sunday drew sold-out crowds.
There were many highlights for electronic music enthusiasts over the weekend including epic headline performances by Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz, Dog Blood (Skrillex :: Boys Noize), Diplo, Afrojack and Armin Van Buuren with spectacular sunset sets from the mainstage by Kaskade, ZEDD and Allison Wonderland.
