Looks and sounds like great fun. I truly wish I were younger too be able to go. But, all of you that do go I'm with you in spirit!

I attended Electric Zoo, or “ezoo”, last year. It was the most fun event I’ve ever been to. From the bright lights, to the epic bass, this is a crazy event that any EDM lover must attend. Just make sure not to go TOO crazy, as there is lots of on-site police. Another thing to be wary of is hydration; this is a day-long event where you’re constantly screaming and jumping.  Either bring a bottle of water, or a camelback.  I had a great time last year, and already bought my tickets to go again! Also make sure you arrive relatively early if you want to get good spots for the opening acts.
