2012 Official Recap Video Out Now, 2013 Early Bird Sale Begins Oct 11 at 1pm EDT
The Electric Zoo 2012 Official Recap video has just been released today. Clocking in at just under 6 minutes, we hope it will help you recapture the spirit of the 2012 installment of Electric Zoo and help you connect to your inner animal for Electric Zoo 2013!
And speaking of Electric Zoo 2013, Early Bird tickets go on sale Thursday, October 11 at 1pm EDT. Stay tuned for the ticket purchase link on that day!
Contrary to the opinion of the great pop philosopher Prince, we believe Life is Just a Party, and Parties Were Meant 2 Last. There will be more party animals at the Zoo this weekend than ever before, and we want your party to last through the entire weekend safely and soundly, so please, watch out for each other, and know that help is all around you. If you see someone slip, trip, or overheat, someone who needs medical attention, rehydration, or just a helping hand, please keep the positive vibe alive, and be a friend to a friend in need.
What does that mean? Well, be a good friend - if you see someone who looks like they could use a helping hand, or you or your fellow party animal is not feeling well for ANY reason, bring it to the attention of one of our helpful staff working at a HELP POINT. These are trained security and medical personnel who are here to help keep everyone safe, whether it's getting someone out of a tight spot when they're a little unsteady on their feet, getting water to someone who's dehydrated, or taking someone who's not being civil for a "time out". They'll be all around the festival grounds in spots that allow them to keep an eye on things, and their locations will be marked with this H icon: . There will also be medical aid stations marked with a red cross in the four corners of the park.
When you arrive at the festival, you'll see people handing out bright pink flyers with a map showing all of the HELP POINTS, including the medical aid stations. You can also find those flyers at vendor booths along with festival guide booklets. Please take a moment when you arrive to read the flyer and familiarize yourself with the HELP POINTS locations - it could make all the difference should you or someone you care about find themselves in need.
And be good to yourself - make sure to drink water throughout the day (there will be free high-speed water refill stations in several locations), keep your body fueled for dancing with the many good eats available, wear sunscreen and find a shady spot to lounge if you need it. Treat your mind and body with respect and help others do the same.
We're all headed to the Zoo to celebrate together, so let's keep the party positive by looking out for each other!
In collaboration with world-renowned VIP nightlife brand Provocateur, we're excited and proud to announce the addition of VIP Tables to Electric Zoo.
A VIP Table is the perfect complement to your VIP Experience for you and your friends. You'll enjoy private reserved raised seating for your party with waitress table service and premium drinks. Choose a table for 6, 8, or 10 in the Main Stage VIP area, or a table for up to 12 in the expanded Sunday School Grove.
VIP Tables do not include festival admission - they are an optional add-on for VIP Experience passholders. Everyone at your table must have a VIP Experience wristband, purchased separately.

The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, a two-part environmental art exhibition on view during the summers of 2011 and 2012 along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park. The project 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. FLOW features ten site specific art projects, five each summer, by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.
FLOW.12 – this year's exhibition – will be open to the public from June-September, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park’s history and environment.
FLOW has been made possible through a generous grant from the Rockefeller Foundation’s New York City Cultural Innovation Fund (CIF) and 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. For more information about this year's exhibition, visit www.flow12.org.

We couldn't be happier to bring you this late-breaking news... Netsky has been added to the Electric Zoo 2012 lineup on the Main Stage on Friday, August 31. Leading a wave of new skool D+hoB talent from Europe with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dancefloor bass + beats, the young Belgian producer and DJ is sure to bring the perfect mix of emotion and intensity to move the thousands gathered at the main stage under the New York City sky.
After huge remixes of Pendulum, Plan B, Leftfield, and Swedish House Mafia, Netsky's new album "2" is finally here, available on CD, vinyl and digital download from Hospital Records. The release takes Netsky's signature sound and brings in live influences with elements of electro-hour and dubstep alongside the euphoric, hands-in-the-air D+B he has become known for.
Check out the video for the first single, "Come Alive", directed by High Contrast, and then get ready for Netsky's Electric Zoo debut on Friday, August 31!
