Electric Zoo returns ‘transformed’ and stronger than ever
Throughout nearly all of 2015, Electric Zoo had promised fans a transformed festival — an all-new look, an all-new experience. Labor Day Weekend approaches, and the 7th annual festival has gotten underway, delivering on the aforementioned promise… and then some.
Within moments of entering, fans are able to feel what’s changed from previous years. Everything from the grounds, crowd control, food and beverage, stage layouts, art installations and performers, and (of course), the brand new, extraordinary production. Made Event didn’t just stick to their word, but they went over the top to give New York City attendees the festival experience they deserve.
Transformed came to life on day one. If you weren’t there to witness it, or you weren’t tuned into the live stream, you may be wondering how…
The Main Stage of 2015 blew its predecessors out of the water; a massive bird-themed edifice encapsulating its crowd with powerful production that was at its strongest when The Chemical Brothers pumped legendary tunes across Randall’s Island.
The Riverside stage took on the look of an EZoo-fashioned Octopus where fans danced around it tentacles to the likes of Mija and Cashmere Cat. This one was an instant fan favorite.
Then there was Awakenings, welcomed by Sunday School, where New York City’s techno admirers got together for spectacle that could best be described as a festival within the festival.
…and that was only day one.
