In the midst of all the EDC talk yesterday, Electric Zoo organizers also announced their Labor Day weekend festival lineup.
Electric Zoo is the most prominent all-EDM festival in the Northeast, attracting thousands to Randall’s Island Park in New York city for an end-of-summer celebration. Today’s announcement was more detailed than most festival announcements have been this year, specifying days and stages of each performance.
Friday’s lineup includes David Guetta, Pretty Lights, Ladiback Luke, Hardwell and Nicky Romero on the main stage. Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Gabriel & Dresden and Mat Zo hold down the Group Therapy stage while A-Trak, Congorock, Dillon Francis, and Nadastram take over the Riverside stage.
Axwell, Dada Life, Sander Van Doorn, Bingo Players and Above & Beyond for a second performance will dominate Saturday’s main stage. Benny Benassi, Wolfgang Gartner, Martin Solveig, Mord Fustang and Morgan Page cover the Hilltop Arena while Sasha, Paco Osuna, Chris Liebing, Claude VonStroke, Koze, Mathias Kaden and Maya Jane Coles occupy the Sunday School Grove stage. Dubstep fans will rejoice in the Dim Mak Riverside stage lineup which includes Steve Aoki, Datsik, 12th Planet, Autoerotique, Dirtyphonics, Felix Cartal, Kill the Noise and Mustard Pimp.
The final day, Sunday, brings Tiesto, Knife Party, Porter Robinson, Dash Berlin and an “extra special killer guest tba” to the main stage. Hilltop Arena features Bloody Beetroots, Excision, Flux Pavillion, Doctor P, Adventure Club, Andy C and Mt. Eden. Zeds Dead, Tommy Trash, 3Lau and Pierce Fulton take over the Riverside stage while the Sunday School Grove stage is stacked with Boys Noise, Marco, Carola, Better Lost Than Stupid, Dixon, Gesaffelstein, Strip Steve vs Djedjotronic, and Umek.
Tickets are on sale now and are the most expensive we’ve seen of the festival season. 3-day GA passes are $299 and $649 for VIP. It’s important to note this is an ALL AGES event.
While Electric Zoo has dominated the EDM festival scene in the Northeast, Insomniac is challenging the Zoo’s reign and is bringing a smaller version of the Electric Daisy Carnival to NYC this May.
