Electric Zoo 2012: All the coverage, all wrapped up

With the colder weather moving in, Summer has come to an end. Labor Day Weekend held the biggest festival in New York City for the fourth year in a row, Electric Zoo on Randall’s Island. Dancing Astronaut was there for all three days of mayhem – taking pictures and critiquing sets – bringing our fans the most coverage possible. Check below the break for everything we covered because we pumped out a ton of content so wanted to make reading about EZoo that much easier.
