All those moons ago, who would have thought that the weekender that roared to life on NYC’s Randall’s Island in 2009-which featured a fresh-faced deadmau5, a pre-cake Aoki and the late-great Frankie Knuckles-would become a household name in the global dance festival scene? Since then, Electric Zoo has been welcome across the globe with the brand touching down in such far off places as Shanghai, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Mexico City.
From its earliest expeditions through the chaotic urban jungle, to scaling the feral lands of the Wild Island, and getting our minds blown by the gritty 6th Boro, ELECTRIC ZOO: THE BIG 10 celebrates what a ride it’s been.
