Event and Lineup
Electric Zoo takes place at the beautiful Randall’s Island Park located along the East River between Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx, the island is in the heart of the Big Apple. It includes numerous fields of spaces to dance and wander around, along with beautiful waterfront views. It’s the perfect venue for those whose hearts belong to the city and the rave scene.

VIP is starting at $599.99 and three-day Platinum is starting at $949.99. There are also two-day, single-day, and ferry and shuttle passes still available on the website as well.

This lineup caters to multiple genres of EDM and will be a perfect place to discover a new favorite artist. There will be four different stages to dance your heart out to. There’s Mainstage, Hilltop Arena, Riverside, and The Grove. Four beautiful stages with the gorgeous New York City skyline in the background. Sounds like a dream.
Travel and Hotels
There are numerous to get to this event. For those flying in, the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) are the three major airports to fly into. JFK and LaGuardia are easy to fly into if you're staying in Brooklyn or Manhattan. If you're staying in Manhattan, you can also fly into Newark and get into the city in less than an hour. I recommend staying in Midtown if you're new to New York and want to be able to get to the festival easily. It will still be around an hour to the festival, but you'll be staying in a part of the city that has a lot to check out and do—plus it's located pretty centrally.
Randall's Island doesn't have its own MTA station, so you'll have to take the subway up to Harlem or the Bronx and then get a Lyft or Uber or you can just Uber there directly. The 4, 5, and 6 trains will get you really close to the festival, and you can easily hail a ride from anywhere between 116 street and the lower Bronx. If you're not familiar with the NYC subway system, I recommend just taking a rideshare or cab or getting directions from an app like Google Maps.
Electric Zoo has gone above and beyond to make sure that your stay in New York City is as easy as possible. If you need a hotel, you can head over to https://ezoo.crewfare.com/ to book your hotel room for the weekend. There are multiple hotels still available on the website, so don’t worry. Anywhere in New York City is going to be a good time, so don't worry about booking a hotel as close as you can get to the venue. Enjoy New York!
