Electric Zoo to Take Place on New York's Randall's Island!!

One topic my friends and I come back to again and again is how New York doesn't have a proper electronic music festival. Detroit has DEMF. Montreal has Mutek. Europe has too many to name. But now, finally, New York has something!

Electric Zoo
will be a 2-day, electronic/dance music event happening Labor Day weekend on Randall's Island. While I was at first a bit leery of the initial line-up, more and more acts (like Busy P, DJ Mehdi, and Tiga!!) have been revealed over the past few weeks and it looks to be a great weekend of electronic music and getting down outside (not to mention the closest thing New York's ever had to a proper electronic music festival). More acts are to be announced over the next month, but the current line-up along with more info is below:
