There’s nothing quite like Labor Day weekend. The extra day off from work marks the unofficial end of beach season and gives you one last chance to use the three-day weekend to close your summer with a bang. There are so many ways to spend your Labor Day weekend that sometimes it can be hard to choose.
If you are a fan of electronic music, your Labor Day weekend plans are a no-brainer. There is only one choice for how you’re going to spend the long weekend and it’s already been MADE for you. It’s your friends, your family, your lover, relaxation, exhilaration, titillation, fans from almost every nation, and an unparallelled line-up of electronic music all rolled into 72 hours. It’s Electric Zoo 2012.
The inaugural Electric Zoo took place in 2009 and with three years of the event laying the foundation, this year’s Electric Zoo is poised to be the best Electronic Zoo ever. And don’t worry, after the best 72 hours of your life, you’ll still have all of Monday to recover before heading back to work/school/reality on Tuesday.
The line-up is a who’s who of EDM culture. The headliners are redonkulous. Any event promoter can bring in a few good headliners but that doesn’t make a festival. However, when you get past the headliners and look at the rest of the line-up you realize that names that would receive top billing at almost any party, club, or festival on earth are filling out the schedule. It’s like an all-star team where even the bench players are better than 95% of the other players in the league. If you were going to wage EDM war on another planet, this is the vast majority of the army you would assemble.
E-Zoo, presented by Made Event, spans three full days over Labor Day weekend (Friday, August 31st to Sunday, September 2nd) on Randall’s Island Park in NYC. The all ages event covers twelve hours per day from 11am-11pm.
Independent Philly will be on hand to cover the entire festival and bring you daily recaps, photo galleries, and interviews with some of the biggest names in EDM. We hope to see you there!
