In addition to all of the music, art installations and good vibes, Electric Zoo also features a large number of the gourmet food trucks that New York City is famous for. The festival is all ages and shuttles are available for festival-goers to get to and from Randall’s Island.

Electronic dance music lovers, a new festival standard has been set. Electric Zoo is relatively new, the first festival being in 2009, but it has it figured out. Located in a city known for its unforgiving nature and high expectations, the festival needs to be run flawlessly and exceed every festivalgoer’s expectation. And it does just that. Not only is it able to bring in world-class talent (check the lineup if there’s a DJ on your bucket list, they will probably be there), but also it is run with an efficiency I have never experienced. They have managed to avoid that gridlock at the front gates which is commonplace at most other festivals, sometimes even preventing you from seeing an artist with an early set, and it doesn’t take hours just trying to leave either. There are two options to get to the festival, taking the bus or the ferry. I didn’t take the ferry (maybe next year) but taking the bus is an odd experience. You get picked up in a pretty rough part of town in Harlem and 20 minutes later you are surrounded by tens of thousands of people dancing, on an island, in New York. This little island in the middle of one of the biggest and most expensive cities in the country is turned into its own little oasis where people can take three days to just let go. Though you look across the river and see the New York skyline and it provides the unkind reminder of the real world, when have DJ’s like Tiesto, David Guetta, Above & Beyond, etc. performing and creating an incredible atmosphere, life just seems to become more manageable.
