12 Best Things We Saw at Electric Zoo 2014

Our favorite moments from the last mega-rave of the season, from Zedd’s fireworks and Clockwork’s Shmoney Dance to David Guetta’s Cartoon Zombies

Electric Zoo


Electric Zoo is summer's last hurrah for dance music revelers in New York City, a three-day weekend to grab the bull by its metaphorical horns and delight in some bass and beats before returning indoors. This year, headliners like David Guetta and Armin van Buuren were complimented by smaller acts like Jamie xx and Sub Focus, providing a relatively decent range of music for both fans of the left field and the pop and trance massive.

Unfortunately, the dance gods were not on our side – the Zoo got cut short for the second year in a row, this time because of torrential flash-flooding and freakishly near lightning. Much to our sorrow and chagrin, the whole thing shut down several hours before the Skrillex/Diplo superduo Jack U was scheduled to play, but we still got in a good two days of sweaty shuffles and flashing lights.
