Electric Zoo announced their lineup today that included Tiesto, Hardwell, The Chainsmokers, and many more. The festival will take place Labor Day weekend, September 2nd-4th, in New York.
According to the festival’s website, more acts will be announced on April 28th. This year’s theme will be “Wild Island.”
Tickets for the festival are currently on sale on their website for $229 for 3-day GA. Prices will increase two more times before the festival begins. VIP tickets are going for $429. Two-day tickets are also available for $159. Organizers will likely announce single day tickets closer to the festival date.
The festival is still trying to get back on their feet from an incident that happened three years ago. There were two deaths caused by drug overdoes during their 2013 festival. They changed things up in 2014 where, “organizers required attendees to watch drug PSAs before ordering tickets, security checks (complete with mandatory shoe removal) resulted in three-hour-long waits for entry while police and drug-sniffing dogs patrolled the grounds, and on the final day, a severe thunderstorm caused organizers to shut down the festival six hours early,” according to Billboard.
Electric Zoo is reportedly starting over this year. Coming off an incident-free 2015 festival, this year’s iteration mark’s the next step for the festival.
