After an unfortunate postponement in 2020, Electric Zoo is announcing its return as Electric Zoo Supernaturals. For its 12th edition, New York’s premiere electronic music festival will feature genre-spanning headlining performances including bass master Illenium, house maestro Kaskade, Grammy-nominated hit-maker Alesso, Deadmau5 as his infamous techno alias Testpilot and a special sunset set by Tiësto. Additional festival favorites slated for phase one include world-class DJs — Brazilian Dirtybird cohort Bruno Furlan, U.K. house and bass wizard Chris Lorenzo, British house sensation Duke Dumont, Manchester favorite Mason Maynard, Australian radio host and DJ Nina Las Vegas, California’s bass music maestro Seven Lions, French house don Shiba San, L.A.’s future bass king Valentino Khan, bass honchos Zeds Dead and dubstep kingpin Zomboy. An additional 50 artists are to be announced. Stages are hosted by freeform electronic label Wakaan, Zeds Dead’s imprint Deadbeats, and LA party collective Brownies & Lemonade.
“While we are beyond excited to share the first phase of Electric Zoo’s 2021 artist lineup, we are even happier to report a nearly 50% year to year increase of artists who exemplify our continued commitment to deliver lineups that embody the principles of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, reflecting the true composition of our global electronic music community,” says Electric Zoo’s SVP and Senior Director of Talent, Kevin Mitchell. Electric Zoo is expected to release an additional 50+ artists in a second major artist announcement at a later date.
Since its inception, the founders have taken E-Zoo around the globe, creating satellite soirées in Mexico, Brazil, and China. Still, its three-day hometown run in dance music mecca NYC continues to be the most popular, selling out year after year. A crowd of nearly 100,000 gather in Randall’s Island Park annually, according to organizers, with a record-breaking 107,500 attending in 2019. 2021 will be another ambitious undertaking destined to transport its fans beyond musical boundaries.
In response to the Covid pandemic, Electric Zoo 2021: Supernaturals plans to take enhanced safety protocols. Electric Zoo continues to monitor the COVID situation and work with leading health & safety professionals to provide a safe experience for all fans, performers, and crew.
Dates: 3-5th September 2021
