For many years the most significant event in New York City over the Labor Day weekend was the West Indian carnival in Brooklyn, but that has changed recently with the start of the fantastic Electric Zoo music festival, taking place on the city's Randall's Island Park.
For all the 2013 Electric Zoo details, with lineup, schedule and streaming:
The Electric Zoo Festival is an annual electronic music festival held over Labor Day weekend in New York City on Randall's Island Park. The festival represents all genres of electronic music, bringing top international DJs and live acts from multiple countries along with hometown favorites to four stages. Electric Zoo (presented by Made Events) will be held during Labor Day weekend. Electric
Zoo has decided to add one more day to the event, leading to the event being 3 days (Friday/Saturday/Sunday) instead of 2 days (Friday/Saturday).
In its 2009 inaugural year, 26,000 people passed through the festival's gates to see artists including Armin van Buuren, Deadmau5, David Guetta and Ferry Corsten. Electric Zoo received a coveted International Dance Music Awards nomination for “Best U.S. Festival” and “Best Music Event” by URB magazine, as well as press coverage from major media outlets like CNN, New York Times, Huffington Post, Village Voice, Time Out New York, New York Post, DJ Mag, and Ocean Drive, establishing it as New York City's premier electronic music festival as well as a top American event.
Randall's Island has enjoyed the status of a shining star, one of Manhattan's main recreation hubs, since the 1930s. Between 1934 and 2002, Downing Stadium served as home base for professional football and soccer teams, as well Olympic Trials and a plethora of music concerts. In 2004, Icahn Stadium replaced Downing as the island's athletic headquarters, boasting a standard 400-meter Mondo surface running track, with 5,000 covered spectator seats and temporary seating available for up to 10,000 spectators. The stadium is the sole International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) certified, championship-quality track and field facility in North America for local, national, and international outdoor competition.
