Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro

Ezoo MAIN STAGE

Electric Zoo is next weekend and rBeatz is going! It’s New York’s electronic music festival, creating the 6th Boro for just one weekend on Randall’s Island Park in New York City. This year, Electric Zoo will bring 5 stages with stellar light shows, mind-blowing pyrotechnics (FIREWORKS), interactive art installations, some of New York’s finest food vendors, a parade, and the wildest party of Ibiza, Dutch techno powerhouse Awakenings.

In honor of the stages gracing Randall’s Island this weekend, rBeatz resident DJ, BRB, went ahead and made a mix containing songs from artists playing at Awakenings. Watch out for his full Electric Zoo mix dropping next week.  For me, this is great reading and working music when I’m not dancing 😉 Click the play button below, and continue reading for an early preview of each stage at Electric Zoo.

MAIN STAGE aka THE ELEPHANT’S ROAR

In this part of the zoo, we will find…

DJ Snake , Galantis, Snails, Lost Kings, Elephante, Above & Beyond, Zedd, DeadMau5 & Eric Prydz, Armin Van Buuren, NGHTMRE, Yellow Claw and many more.

A lot of animal names appropriate for the main stage at Electric Zoo. The main stage represents the herd of the city, a.k.a. Manhattan. Skyscrapers everywhere, and a huge elephant right smack dab in the middle of the city.  This stage will have a lot of the pyrotechnics involved. Excited to see how the city evolves with each set. Always cool seeing what each DJs lighting team has to bring to the party.

HILLTOP ARENA aka 6TH BORO STATION or ELROW PRESENTS BOLLYWOOD

In this part of the zoo, we will find…

Don Diablo, Dada Life, Martin Solveig, Excision, Slander, Thomas Jack, Claptone and many more.

This will be a split stage for the weekend. On Friday and Saturday, the stage will be the 6th Boro Station, and on Sunday, it’s switching to Elrow Presents Bollywood. Each day is fairly eclectic on this stage. Friday looks to have a lot of electro house, Saturday will be heavy dubstep/trap and  Saturday looks to have more of a melodic house feel 🙂

The stage is equipped with spectacular visuals with a special electric feel. On Sunday, one of Ibiza’s best parties, elrow’s Bollywood, takes over. Get ready for bright colours, dancers in the crowds, veils, saris & silk, incense, henna and a parade of divine beings.
