Electric Zoo Music Festival

Electric Zoo Music Festival is an annual event held on Labor Day Weekend on Randall’s Island Park in New York. In 2011, the event expanded into a three day long festival and gave attendees the option to attend one day, or all three. Although the music festival is relatively young compared to other EDM festivals, it has become very popular on the Northern East Coast and has received International Dance Music Award nominations for best music event for the past three years.

Since Electric Zoo Music Festival is held on 24 acres of grass in the middle of Randall’s Island, there is not much room for parking or transportation. The music festival is located along the East River between Manhattan, Queens, and The Bronx. Attendees are provided with free transportation via a ferry or a shuttle bus. The music festival also provides two different levels of VIP treatment, a “VIP experience” and a “Platinum Experience“. 2012 marked the first year that Electric Zoo VIP tables are being offered for a price range between $1,250 – $4,000.
