Take 100 or so DJs and producers, ranging from megasuperduperstars like Tiësto to the somewhat more underground likes of Maya Jane Coles. Toss in some amazing lighting, including some rather cool 3D trickery at the Riverside Stage. Add 110,000 party people, at least some of who seem to enjoy dressing up as half-Barney, half-elf furries, having a blast on Randalls Island. And finally, add yet another rain-free Labor Day weekend (praise be to the weather gods). What do you get? The biggest Electric Zoo yet, that’s what. Here are a few photos from the festival to refresh your fuzzy, lovely memories.
