The Electric Zoo is New York's electronic dance music festival held on Randall’s Island every Labor Day weekend since 2009.
In just two years it grew into a three day event and by 2011 boasted 85,000 paid entries.
Similar events happen all over the world but Billboard Magazine calls this one “the best music festival of its kind.”
Over 110 DJ’s will present music and light shows amid dancing, eating, drinking and perhaps some other uh, activities.
Last year, things got a bit out of hand and the third day of the festival had to be cancelled for tragedy, with refunds issued for all.
Party drug MDMA (ecstasy, or molly) took the lives of Jeffery Russ and Olivia Rotondo, two young concert goers. They were only 21 years old.
So this year promoters have gone on television to announce everyone will be subject to no fewer than five searches while waiting in the line to the fairgrounds.
The list of things you may not bring in is comprehensive.
Security will be very tight.
This is the public service announcement:
Besides, doing hard drugs is for the birds!
Have a great holiday weekend.
