This Labor Day will be an an epic, global celebration when animals from all over the world answer the call of the wild and descend on Electric Zoo to party like true New Yorkers in The 6th Boro. Alongside powerhouse dutch techno brand Awakenings and DJs from every continent on the planet, we’re overwhelmed with excitement in bringing back the legendary global dance phenomenon—elrow. Produced by Spain’s Arnau family since the 1800’s, elrow will bring an international flair and a kaleidoscopic explosion of color and sound with their Bollywood spectacular at the Hilltop Arena on Sunday, September 3rd.
elrow brings a theatrical flamboyance and only the finest house music to dancefloors, and returns to Electric Zoo after their strongest year in history, earning plaudits all around the world for their enlivening style and adventurous themes. Party animals in The 6th Boro can expect psychedelic subcontinental vibes, embroidery, incense, belly-dancers, and snake charmers all set within a spectacular Taj Mahal environment. Artists playing the stage include Thomas Jack, De La Swing, Claptone, The Black Madonna, Marc Maya and a B2B set with ALX and Charles Meyer.
Electric Zoo’s Hilltop Arena will be transformed into an exotic paradise, as stilt-walking Bhangra dancers and larger-than-life performers keep citizens of The 6th Boro on their toes with plenty of surprises from elrow’s special guest DJs and residents.
…And guess what: Electric Zoo will be the only place stateside fans can experience this special happening.
The madcap Catalonian carnival has brought its phenomenal party vibes to major European festivals like Glastonbury, Tomorrowland, Parklife and Hideout, and capped a massive 2016 by being named Club of the Year by prestigious U.K. publication Mixmag. Last summer, elrow made an undeniable mark on the scene with a ten week sold-out run at Space Ibiza. This summer elrow holds a residency at Ibiza’s #1 nightclub Amnesia and is selling more tickets than any other show on the island.
elrow’s penchant for inflatable flair, custom confetti, and bold imagery makes them a colorful outlier in the stoic world of underground clubbing. The Arnau family’s 140-odd year history of throwing parties, and legacy for entertaining transcends generations making elrow one of electronic music’s most infectious and compelling stories and a cherished inclusion into The 6th Boro experience.
