In the decade since the birth of Electric Zoo, "animals" and "zookeepers" alike have watched dance music outgrow the underground, and the festival's hit its stride in pace with this high energy explosion.
The Big Ten
This year marks the tenth anniversary of Electric Zoo, New York's premier electronic dance music festival. The festival's theme this year is "The Big Ten", and they're throwing down with explosions -- in the form of driving bass lines, light shows, and probably a few actual fireworks -- unlike anything seen before. EZoo lures over 90,000 fans to five stages at Randall's Island Park over Labor Day weekend annually, and T-Mobile is stoked to be heading back for a fifth straight turn as festival sponsors.
We know that music connects us all, so we're going all in for EZoo. The "intrepid zookeepers" have spent ten years curating a showcase of the hypnotic, melodic, and hip-shaking stand-outs of EDM, building to this breakdown moment, and the Un-carrier is amped to participate by offering perks for customers and all EDM fans in attendance.
Almost all three nights of the festival are sold out; but we gave fans another chance to snag tickets through an IRL scavenger hunt featuring some of our NYC stores as the X's on the map -- it only took a few hours for fans on social to chase down and claim the elusive event passes.
During EZoo weekend -- Friday, August 31st through Sunday, September 2nd, we're inviting everyone to immerse themselves fully in the music and unique EZoo community and culture. Festival attendees can travel between Manhattan and EZoo on an awesome magenta-wrapped ferry, complete with an on-deck magenta glam station where they can fancy themselves up in full spirit animal regalia. The best place to catch the action is at our premium T-Mobile viewing deck overlooking the main stage, complete with charging stations, another magenta glam station, and a private bar. Make sure you keep an eye out for action shots and video over the weekend by following @TMobile and @ElectricZooNY!
