Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro is three days of nonstop dancing to the hottest DJ’s and spreading the love to everyone you meet.
Another year was conquered as all 5 boroughs and anybody who came to visit from the TriState area came together at Randall’s Island for another epic Labor Day weekend yet again.
Different fans come to dance their summer fever off to beats ranging from trance, house, techno and dubstep.
Friday night was the start of it all as people dressed up in this no judgement zone.
Each stage ranged from different genres of EDM. With the main stage hosting more popular music with Galantis and Dj Snake as the headliners. DJ Snake took time away from his set giving an opportunity to raise awareness for Hurricane Harvey affects and sending a good vibe to the residents of Houston.
Martin Solveig was turning tracks on the Hilltop stage with some of his own vocals as he was standing up on the table pumping up the crowd as they cheered.
Something also incredible happened as Sasha & John Digweed used EZoo as their very own rare reunion. They announced their tour last year on April Fool’s and this iconic UK duo seem to back together for now after a very long hiatus.
Trance wasn’t dead at the Riverside stage, as Markus Schulz drew a big crowd for his ver progressive trance mix matching the melodies with some amazing vocals or singers from his track.
Each day more and more people piled in as you can see different fans of each artists. People of all ages were dancing to house under The Awakening tent with some more softer melodies and beats. As the Hilltop and main stage pouring bass through its speakers.
The shufflers were in full motion for Claude Vonstroke as his trance mixes hypnotized the crowd, then some hardcore bass sounds blared the opposite side of the main stage with DJ’s REZZ- Canadian artist- who is known for her “dark and sinister techno” as told by Vice.
Headling that night was Above & Beyond, progressive trance group who have been around since the early 2000’s. Following their set was Zedd as he played his most popular hit ‘Clarity. But by this time it is totally down pouring and many people have left, only the true well-prepared fans stayed to enjoy Zedd as he closed off the night.
The last and final day seemed more pack then every with people wearing rain gear, scared for a downpour part 2.
Slushii was one of the main highlight set as he mixed popular rap and oldie songs to very hardcore dubstep/trap.
Taking the main stage was Califronia native DJ Ookay as he took the decks with his most popular hit ‘Thief’ with some vocals and saxophone inspired beats to his upbeat electric song.
Armin Van Buren seemed to have resorted to more popular tracks, different from his normal progressive beats that he is known for.
Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz ended the weekend with the best set on the main stage. Nothing ever seen before at Electric Zoo as it seems to be that deadmau5 is retiring his infamous mouse head. The pair have been a duo for a year now playing back to back sets, but with Eric Prydz never before headlining EZoo and Deadmau5 being an original headliner, the two definitely killed it.
The crowd cheered as vocals from ‘I Remember’ swept through the air, but other than that, this is a whole new look for the both of them and no one in the audience seemed to be complaining. If you are a true EDM fan, then this set is something to definitely do not want to miss.
Until next year!
