All those moons ago, who’da thought that the weekender that roared to life on NYC’s Randall’s Island in 2009 —which featured a fresh faced deadmau5, a pre-cake Aoki and the late-great Frankie Knuckles—would become a household name in the global dance festival scene?
We’ve come a long, long way together, through the hard times and the good. From our earliest expeditions through the chaotic urban jungle, to scaling the feral lands of the Wild Island, and getting our minds blown by the gritty 6th Boro. What a ride it’s been!
Since our first outing in 2009, we’ve been welcome all across the globe, taking our brand to Shanghai, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, and Mexico City.
From your great gleaming skyscrapers to your filthy-a** subway. The neon lights of Time Square to the fading memories of Coney Island. From the famous fuggedaboutit wiseguys to the lifelong friendships forged on dance floors. New York, you are the Big Apple in our eye, and our constant source of inspiration. It’s been an honor to make you dance.
2018 is Electric Zoo’s 10th birthday, and we’re going to make sure that this is the biggest, wildest fiesta that we’ve ever thrown down! #EzooTen will be a blow-out of epic proportions, featuring the world’s finest DJs and most mind-melting production in the heart of The City That Never Sleeps.
We are preparing the biggest party New York City has ever seen. At Electric Zoo: The BIG 10 we want to dance with all of our friends at once. All the hardcore heroes from the past decade, and the fledgling fauns making their first trip to the island. We want to see the old skool trance tigers, the crunchy bass bears, the techno penguins, and the classic house hippos, all returning to the watering hole to shake it out again, and soak up the infectious vibes.
We can’t wait to dance with you again New York!
