The dubstep duo of Mt. Eden are returning to Electric Zoo Saturday, August 31 but this time on Main Stage East and LIVE.
The pair released a seven track EP, 'Walking On Air' this past June on Ultra Music which combines graceful string arrangements of strong emotion with huge drops bringing them to the next step in their rapidly evolving career (Available on iTunes). Before releasing 'Walking On Air,' their YouTube channel had garnered over 100 million views, including over 14 million for "Sierra Leone" watch here.
Providing a climactic backbone to their bag of tricks, New Zealand's pride and joy continue to raise the bar with a larger than life orchestral live show. Set with a pristine mixture of live sample triggering, accompanied by a dramatic string quartet and MC, this is undoubtedly a must see performance in 2013.
You've never heard dance music so operatically rapturous. You've never moved quite like this. Catch them at #EZOO5!

Electric Zoo is proud to welcome back one of house music's most respected and admired artists to the 5 year anniversary bash: Cassy!

(Pre-order here.) Her fabric 71 mix provides a snapshot of Cassy's raw unadulterated sound; that unashamedly intricate mix of stripped-back hedonism and an all-encompassing warm sincerity.
Don't miss Cassy's set at Electric Zoo, one of only 3 North American tour dates she has this summer! Find her playing Friday, August 30th at Sunday School Grove!

Electric Zoo is coming in with fresh talent this Labor Day Weekend! We're proud to have the British duo of Chase & Status making their EZoo debut as a headliner in the Dim Mak takeover at the Riverside tent Sunday, September 1st.

Will (Status) and Saul (Chase) are globally recognized as recording artists, record label owners, an internationally renowned live act and superstar producers. Chase & Status have recently released their newest single "Lost & Not Found ft. Louis M^ttrs" which premiered on Zane Lowe's Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1!

Every Electric Zoo pass includes your choice of ferry or shuttle bus transportation, but next week the ferry option that's offered with 3-Day General Admission passes will be sold out. The ferry is the most popular way to get to Electric Zoo from Manhattan, but space is limited. So if you're planning to come to all 3 days of Electric Zoo and you want to ride the ferry, get your pass now! Once they're gone, the only way to take the ferry to the festival will be by purchasing a Single Day, VIP, or Platinum pass.
AraabMuzik, otherwise known as MVP of the MPC, returns to Electric Zoo 2013's Riverside Fool's Gold Clubhouse on Saturday, August 31!
Google the name AraabMuzik, or recall his amazing set last year at Electric Zoo, and you'd discover videos showing this music producer hammering on an MPC as if he was Travis Barker on the drums. Some might call it poetry in motion, others might say it’s suicide on an MPC, but for the Dipset in-house producer it’s just another day on the job. With his mind-blowingly rapid beat-making techniques, it's easy to see why AraabMuzik is one artist NOT to be missed at Electric Zoo! But until then, AraabMuzik is gearing up to release a new album, 'The Remixes, Vol. 1' July 9 on Ultra Records. Listen to a preview of one of the album's awesome new tracks, "Keep It In Motion," here!
Win a digital download of AraabMuzik's 'The Remixes, Vol. 1'!

The Randall's Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, annual summer art exhibitions along the shoreline at Randall's Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park's island environment. Each year, FLOW features five site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum's Artists in the Marketplacje (AIM) program for emerging artists.
This year's Grand Opening event, Saturday June 15 from 2-5pm at Randall's Island Park, is free and open to the public, and will offer a range of interactions with the pieces and with the artists. FLOW.13 features works by artists Stephanie Dodes, Alejandro Guzmán, Eto Otitigbe, Anne Percoco, and Jenifer Wightman.
Randall's Island Park is a unique and remarkable waterfront resource, located in the East River with views of the Queens, Bronx and Manhattan shorelines. New waterfront pathways run along the 4.5-mile shoreline, which includes almost 9 acres of restored salt marsh and freshwater wetlands. The Park also offers a track & field stadium, a golf center, a 20-court tennis center and dozens of new playing fields, as well as the Harlem River Event Site, home of Made Event's Electric Zoo, a three-day Labor Day weekend concert event at Randall's Island which draws local and international DJ artists and audience.
FLOW.13 - this year's third annual exhibition - will be open to the public from June-November, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park's history and environment.
FLOW is made possible through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC's largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall's Island Park.
The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall's Island Park, in the midst of one of the world's greatest cities.
