Electric Zoo is New York City’s premiere electronic music festival.

With over 150,000 fans coming together from around the globe to the world’s favorite city, Electric Zoo is a chance to celebrate and connect.

“Electric Zoo might not be the country’s largest, splashiest, or most hyped electronic dance music festival. But we’re going to go on record and say that it’s the best.” – Billboard

It goes down Saturday and Sunday, April 12 & 13th, and it’s right across the street.

If you know how to RSVP then you’re a VIP. Nuff said. Fun and games are covered:  Honest Cocktails, Vape in the ‘Fogden’ —  and leave with prizes like Festival Tickets, Gift Certificates, Party Access & swag filled pinatas.  The pool will be open from  DJ Sessions with surprise guests, Playlists, curated by us, the Couch Sessions, made up of artist lineups from the hottest music festivals of summer, like @sfoutsidelands. @govballnyc, & @bonnaroo (which we’ve deemed the best lineup of the century)Wait What? Swag Filled Pinatas? 

But it gets better. Kind Snacks will be powering the #savvycity experience with KIND BARS & granola. Pop Chips is setting up a pop-up lounge with beer pong, and VIPs can earn points to redeem prizes from parner #savvycity brands Nooka, Me Undies, OneHope & Boatbound.
