Not Familiar with Electric Zoo?
This festival debuted in 2009 by Made Event and is internationally recognized. The Electric Zoo Festival is one of NYC’s biggest music festivals. Performers typically represent the most popular in the music scene but also transcend to include various sub-genres, including the wide spectrum of electronic music. There are international renditions of Electric Zoo having taken place in Tokyo, Shanghai, Mexico City, and São Paulo.
