EDC isn't as easy as 1,2,3
Shayla V. Aug 20, 2013
EDC 2013 is back on Randall's Island and after last years experience, I hope the party promoter have wised up about holding such a large event in a small fair ground. Randall's Island isn't the smallest, but when it comes to containing 500 plus people, stages, tents, restrooms, and water/food stations space fills up fast. I had the privilege of being "Zoo Keeper" last year ensuring the animals were well hydrated; however, it is heard to do when you are directly across from one stage area and lines turn to massive huddles blocking walking paths. Party goers weren't really phased by this, but it became apparent that more space is necessary. On the flip side, the island is good for outdoor venues and with proper investment can be enhanced with lights and other glowing attractions. Aside, from EDC, Randall's Island is a great place to play pick up soccer, job along the Triboro Bridge or do some investigating of the mental institution at the other end. All encompassing island, but it does have a capacity limit.

First and foremost - Electric Zoo. One of the top 5 times I've ever had in my life had to be here for the first electric zoo, but of course that has more to do with the artists than the island itself - I mean it could've been on the island from Lost with the hostiles running around as long as Steve Angello was killing it onstage I would've had a good time - and that pretty much sums up what a review of the island would be - it's more about who you're seeing than where you're seeing it. I will give Randall's Island credit where it is due, the concert space is huge and really good for multi-act outdoor festivals. In fact the space is big enough that you don't even get too much sound interference from the conflicting stages. If you're not coming for a concert, the island also has gorgeous soccer fields with views of the Triboro bridge and Manhattan, and it makes for a nice walk or jog over the bridge from the city or Queens for anyone looking for a stroll along the road less traveled.
Simpy, OK.

I came here for a Dave Matthews concert and had a really good time. Then again, I would have enjoyed it regardless of where it was. There are a few things that I did like about the setting, one being the ease of getting there. We took a subway up to Harlem where there was a bus waiting to shuttle people to Randall's Island. Though the line was long, it was extremely convenient that it picked us up right by the subway stop and took us to the concert within a matter of minutes. Once we got there, there were plenty of food and drink vendors (and some others selling clothing and other trinkets too). Since it was a dave concert, everyone got there early to lay down blankets for the night. It was a GIANT grass field so there was plenty of room, but the front did fill up fast. I had forgotten to bring a blanket, but luckily there was a vendor selling mats that saved the day. Overall, it was a good setting for a dave concert but I'm not sure what takes place here on a daily basis. I know they have a lot of concerts and, based on my previous experience, I'd be willing to go back for another.

Every year, my friends and I would pile onto a bus in Harlem and be driven to Warp Tour to see a day's worth of punk, ska, and hardcore while bouncing around like idiots. Every year, the first thing we would receive upon arriving at the sun-baked field on which the tour is hosted was a surgeon's mask. That's because the minute people started moshing in the dirt, a cloud of dust would rise up which would choke you out if you weren't careful. So yes, on the one hand, Randall's Island is a massive place where huge concerts can be held intelligently, without all of the insanity of New York City. On the other hand, black boogers and a nasty cough can sometimes be the side effects. I say it's 50/50 stay or go.
