Stick with the animals and experience freedom. What seemed like a one hit wonder is back with a vengeance as Electric Zoo dominates the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) festival market in New York City. Framed as a three-day event, EZoo unites the free roaming spirits of N.Y.C on Randall’s Island with a multi sensory experience. In attending day one, I was taken back to an era of pure magic where dance music personified the spirit of P.L.U.R (Peace, Love, Unity, Respect).
Without regard of ones race, sexuality, gender or bank account, EZoo created a day where togetherness was celebrated as one got lost in music. Collaborators of said day were Martin Solveig, Dada Life, John Digweed, Don Diablo, Galantis & DJ Snake. Upon entering the festival grounds I experienced a flurry of inflatable jumpsuits, prismatic glasses (which are AWESOME!), and animal costumes. I quickly scanned the EZoo app known as the Sixth Borough to get a lay of the land and map out my day. Being a new animal at the Zoo I was not aware that there are five stages and a multitude of secret spots where one can graze. I frantically pieced together my day and buckled up for following hours to come.
