Labor Day weekend means a few things ever year. You have flocks of swanky folks hobnobbing in the Hamptons, the burning of a giant wooden man in the Nevada desert, and on a grassy island in the waters of New York City, you have Electric Zoo. Set on Randall's Island, the industry staple festival has been bringing together many of dance music's biggest names to the Big Apple for nine straight years, and now they're gearing up for their next go around as the city's "6th Boro."

The festival's initial lineup is topped by headliners DJ Snake, trance trio Above & Beyond, and a closing tag-team performance by the pair of deadmau5 and Eric Prydz. Like years past, the organization is also teaming up with a few European club and festival institutions like Dutch techno behemoth Awakenings and Spanish party people elrow, with two stage hosts yet to be announced. Other lineup highlights include beloved NYC DJ Danny Tenaglia, a coveted b2b from Sasha and John Digweed, and OWSLA's NGHTMRE. Check out the full phase one lineup below.
