4 Ways Electric Zoo Is Raising The Bar For EDM Festivals Throughout The Country

by 4 years ago

Electric Zoo

Electric Zoo is back and better than ever this Labor Day weekend in NYC, and we know what you’re thinking – “Yeah right, what makes it better than ever?” A LOT OF THINGS DO, anonymous BroBible reader, A LOT! If you were at Electric Zoo last year and you plan on going again this year get ready to have your mind blown, because the whole festival has been transformed in order to ramp it up so that NYC can not only boast about being the greatest city in the world, but also the blossoming capital of EDM festivals. Don’t believe us?

Oh, ye of little faith. Let us prove you wrong.


1. They’re Bringing The Renowned Dutch Techno Festival “Awakenings” To America For The FIRST Time


Electric Zoo

For those of you who are unaware, Awakenings is the leading Dutch techno festival that’s spent years upon years operating solely in Europe to bring fans together in order to celebrate the one thing that everyone from any nationality can agree on: music. After debuting in London last year to a sold-out crowd, Awakenings has made its way to America and Electric Zoo will be the very FIRST festival to host a curated stage by the Dutch brand. Are you a fan of Adam Beyer, Paco Osuno or The Martinez Brothers? Then you’ll be seeing them as they were meant to be seen this Labor Day: on the Awakenings techno stage at Electric Zoo.


2. Their VIP Section Is Pulling Out ALL The Stops


Electric Zoo

We’ve all been there – you shell out the extra cash for a VIP ticket to a festival, only to find that the advertised perks you thought you were getting are actually BS. VIP bathrooms? Technically they’re there, but they’re on the complete opposite side of the festival, aka completely out of the way. Elevated viewing platforms for the stages? Yeah sure, but only for the smaller stages and not the main stage. What gives?

Well you don’t need to worry about any of that at Electric Zoo this year, because they’ve partnered with LIV Nightclub as their “official nightlife partner and host” for the LIV SKY VIP experience. Sounds fancy, right? That’s because it is. Not only have they created a premium-viewing platform right on top of the main stage front-of-house in order to provide the BEST views possible, but they’re also offering table service for anyone who’s 21+. Yes, that means you can reserve your own private area of the festival all to yourself rather than getting trampled by teenagers who think it’s cool to black out at their first music festival and bomb out everywhere. Sign us up!


3. They’ve Partnered With ID&T…Yes, THAT ID&T

Ever heard of a little festival called Tomorrowland? What about Mysteryland and TomorrowWorld? Yeah, we thought so – the company behind all three of those mind-blowing festivals has partnered with Electric Zoo this year to bring festival goers the pinnacle experience of what an electronic festival should be. Did you go to Electric Zoo last year? Take that festival, compare it to what TomorrowWorld was like last year…

…and you’ll see exactly what we mean.


4. New Fork City Is Completely Revamping The Concept Of Festival Food



Ever heard of New Fork City? No? They’re basically the food experts of NYC with an Instagram account that boasts over 300,000 followers, and it’s no wonder – just look at some of the food they’ve found in a city with practically millions of places to eat:

Mouth watering yet? Then you’re in luck, since New Fork City is curating all the food available at Electric Zoo, giving you options that range from the big apple’s diviest dive bars to national favorites like Luke’s Lobster. Name one other music festival where you can eat lobster, Korean BBQ and jumbo lump crab cakes all in one place: trick question, you can’t!


Tickets for Electric Zoo are still available for purchase HERE, since we know that you just realized whatever Labor Day plans you’ve currently got going on pale in comparison. We’re not here to gloat — but we’re going to gloat anyway.

We told you so.
