35,000 people. 135 DJs. With just over a week ’til the start of the massive fifth-year anniversary of Electric Zoo on Randalls Island off Manhattan, I thought I’d share some of my most-anticipated acts to be seen this year…

Update (11/11): Plans to host the next EDC: New York at Woodstock ’93 have been canceled. More details as they’re available; no word on where the festival will be held.

Update (8/19): After some sincere disappointment dancing on the smaller, paved grounds of CitiField, the latest leaks suggest Electric Daisy Carnival will be seriously changing things up for next year’s event: they’re moving to the grounds of the legendary Woodstock, for starters, and will offer camping options! More as it arrives…

♬ Pretty Lights – Around the Block

One of my favorite festival mainstays, Pretty Lights, has a kickass new record coming out just in time for July, “A Color Map of the Sun” (stream it FREE here!). Silky smooth like all the ones before it, this album adds a new dimension through the use of old-timey instruments Derek spent months traveling many miles to dig up. Tickets for the official launch party at the new underground club Output in Brooklyn go on sale at NOON TODAY, and are capped at only 800 people so act fast! Otherwise, you can catch pretty lights at Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, and a number of other amazing festivals across the U.S.

One of the greatest kickback rewards of attending EDM activities is the inevitable intense workout you get– from enduring subhuman conditions, dancing for hours, and wrestling the massesto get home on public transit. At the recent Electric Daisy Carnival, my friend’s pedometer recorded that we’d “traveled” a distance of over 10 miles; I don’t even remember how many calories it was. Recently, a few organizations have embraced this culture of athleticism and teamwork from the EDM community to promote some insanely creative events. From glow-in-the-dark runs to foamy mayhem, these events all showcase one of the best parts about our community: everybody’s in such damn good shape!

NB: We’re not profiting from any of these ticket sales, and can’t vouch their awesomeness in their debut year, but damn if they don’t look fun!

 

Electric Run

I think this is one of my favorite rave-inspired events. Throngs of people dress up in as much neon and glow as possible to run a 5k, all ending with an EDM concert at the finish line. Quickly expanding throughout the U.S., this event comes to Brooklyn on September 28th! PS, if their promo vid didn’t quite entice you, just check out how happy this kid was :)

Three more awesome events after the jump!
