Electric Zoo 2012 Day 2: Memorable moments from Randall's Island

Electric Zoo 2012 Day 2: Memorable moments from Randall’s Island

Our second day on Randall’s island was hotter and more hectic than the first. With a massive influx of concertgoers and a slew of big name progressive headliners, Saturday at Electric Zoo finally embodied the “zoo” aesthetic. All tents were packed to the brim with energetic fans, braving the heat and humidity to see their favorite acts. With names like Axwell, Dada Life, Wolfgang Gartner, Rusko, Above & Beyond, Steve Aoki, and Sasha on the lineup, there was a sound to satisfy anyone’s tastes — and plenty of security guards with hoses to keep the crowds cool.

Check out our quick recap of Day 1 and grab some livesets from Friday and Saturday.
