New York City is set to become an electronic dance utopia with the twelfth edition of the Electric Zoo festival.

Electric Zoo, Sept. 3–5, 2021, New York, NY

The parkland of Randall’s Island Park will be transformed into a party venue by the creative minds behind Tomorrowland, Mysteryland, and Sensation. They will inject the event with a dose of passionate magic to create a dancing paradise.

The island will have four musical areas, each with a different theme and stage. Each stage will be hosted by a selection of artists who will transport you to another magical world of their creation. 

The stages are referred to as the Main Stage, Hilltop Arena, Sunday School Grove, and Riverside. Each creates a different experience. Electric Zoo afterparties happen at venues like King’s Hall, Output, and Schimanski, to name a few.

2021 Theme: Supernaturals

The Electric Zoo theme this year sets the stage for a mystical encounter with reality. Removing limitations allows space for the entrance of mystical creatures. Expect to encounter spiritual pandas, mystical entities, cosmical unicorns, astral enchanters, and spellbinding sorcerers over the course of your adventure at the Zoo

“Let go of everything you once thought unimaginable and believe in the Supernatural.” Electric Zoo

With a carefully curated lineup of the most creative names in Electronic Dance Music, this event is the premier event in NYC. Dubstep, House, and Bass are top of mind as well.

When you look at the headliners, you will see a diverse selection of talented artists from all over the world. 

What to wear?

For some festivals, it’s all about Cosplay, and Electric Zoo is no exception.

Glitter and glam, makeup that lets you bring out the wild inside of you, dressing up for a rave is an anything-goes experience.

This year’s theme is Supernaturals if you’re looking for some inspiration. 

Dress up like the party animal you are with leopard prints, zebra or tiger prints, add a bit of snakeskin and show a lot of your own skin. Animal-inspired styles are always a hit. 

Glow in the dark clothing or accessories is sure to attract. A bandana is always a handy accessory that has multiple uses. 

Be sure to bring water as well. a hydration backpack is a great idea or you can bring along a reusable bottle for fill-ups at a water station. Wear breathable clothing, to keep you cool while you dance the days away. A swimsuit under your crop top gives you options.
