It's been just six years since Electric Zoo first launched at Randall's Island—but in that short space of time, the three-day Labor Day weekend festival has become an unmissable attraction on the electronic-dance-music circuit, attracting EDM fans from around the world. This year's lineup is as heavy on the superstar-DJ action as you'd expect—David Guetta, Armin van Buuren and Nicky Romero are just a few of the big names on hand—but there will be plenty of less bombastic sounds for those looking for something more underground from the fest. And yes, plenty of eye-grabbing outfits, too. If you're not feeling 100% on that neon tutu, check out our guide to the best festival clothing for summer.

Hot Since 82 + Andrea Oliva

Critics' pick

Fedde Le Grand + Danny Avila + D.O.D.

Okay, technically Electric Zoo is over, but if you're not ready to face the music just yet, well, that's what after-parties are for! The Netherlands' Fedde Le Grand, who will forever be known as the man behind the massive 2006 club hit "Put Your Hands Up for Detroit," teams up with wildly popular DJ/producer/whippersnapper (he's 19) Danny Avila for a big-room finish.
