Electric Zoo Cancelled Due to COVID-19

Electric Zoo is among the many large-scale events in NYC to be cancelled due to COVID-19

Another festival has just been canceled due to coronavirus concerns. On Thursday, July 9th, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that all large events requiring a city permit through September 30 are now officially cancelled. Sadly, this included the annual electronic music festival, Electric Zoo. This festival was supposed to return to Randall’s Island over Labor Day weekend, on September 4-6. Instead, organizers announced that they would be focusing on their 2021 edition. Electric Zoo will return next year, September 3-5, 2021. Their official statement about the matter was as follows.

Official Statement from Team EZOO

Electric Zoo Family,
On July 9th, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced all large events will be canceled through September 30th. Regrettably, we must stop all the preparations for 2020 Electric Zoo: Supernaturals and reschedule the festival for 2021. We’ve kept hope alive and continued planning and building Electric Zoo until today. While we are heartbroken, everyone’s safety is our #1 priority and we understand the Mayor’s decision.

We are all New York tough, let’s be safe and get through these difficult times together. We will return Labor Day Weekend 2021 with the Supernaturals theme and with the biggest line-up in the history of Electric Zoo!

If you are keeping your ticket, you’ll recieve a $50 credit on your 2021 wristband to use for food, drinks and merchandise! ($100 for VIP/Platinum) and you don’t need to do anything! We will follow up with you in the coming months with your new ticket and how to receive your credit.

We are sad to hear another festival cancelled, but ultimately, the move was for the safety of all attendees. Next year, Electric Zoo (or also known as “EZOO“) will return, bigger and brighter than ever. Hopefully, the 2021 edition will provide great memories, if not better than the 2019 edition. To conclude, we can only hope this year will mean better things in store for the future of electronic music.
