Over the years, Electric Zoo Festival, one of the biggest EDM festivals based out of New York, has earned itself a bad reputation for having cancel Sundays due to extreme weather conditions and drug related incidents. As a matter of fact, many attendees this year were skeptical about going on Sunday since it has been cancelled for the past two (2) consecutive years. All the superstitious-skeptics even started to make believe that Electric Zoo Festival’s Sunday was cursed forever.
Well… my raver bunnies and bros, Electric Zoo Festival made a statement this year with a new theme, “Tranformed,” and a main stage influenced by the Phoenix Bird which symbolized and promoted themes around REBIRTH and REINCARNATION. Electric Zoo Festival wanted to make a subconscious effort to tell its fans that this is the year they are turning a new page and leaving the past behind… and that is exactly what they did!
Those who attended Electric Zoo Festival: Transformed this year were blown away with “all-new production, crowd control, festival grounds carefully arranged in attendees favor and flooded by performers and art; Awakenings and blessings from the techno gods, VIP lounges,” hosted by ECL Events and AIM Hospitality Group, “fit for even New York City’s most daring partiers, fireworks that could’ve woken up neighbors all the way in New Jersey, and not to mention a f*cking massive Main Stage that will now be put in the conversation with the Ultras and Tomorrowlands of the world,” according to our friends at Dancing Astronaut.
Ravers from all over the world united to represent their respective homeland.
New York City’s biggest spenders joined in on the action inside the VIP Skyloft hosted by ECL Events and AIM Hospitality Group.
Even Instagram King, Dan Bilzerian, attended and partied with a 100 babes inside the Skyloft VIP Tables.

Untold Festival is Romania’s brand new mega-scale summer party. A huge electronic lineup with a sprinkling of urban and pop music will take over 20 venues across the city of Cluj-Napoca, as open-air partying moves up to the next level in Eastern Europe. The festival organizers have aimed unbelievably high with stage design to reflect the amazing stories of famous Romanian fairy-tales. Braced for an influx of 300,000 people, Cluj will be transformed into several magical realms – including The River, The Mountain, The Citadel, The Forest and The Pool. DJs such as Avicii, David Guetta, John Newman, Armin Van Buuren, ATB and many others will be gracing the stages of the Untold Festival for 4 days and 4 nights on July 30th to August 2nd.
Untold Festival is giving an interesting incentive for discounted tickets. Attendees who donate blood at one of the donation centers before July 24th will receive 30 percent off the price of their purchase, and anyone who donates at specific hubs in Bucharest and the host city will receive a free one-day pass. The festival’s motivation is both social and commercial: Romania has one of Europe’s lowest blood donation rates, and being the only festival in the world that gives blood an entry level is garnering plenty of attention. The festival is taking place on Dracula’s turf so it only makes sense to donate a little blood for discounted entree fees. Don’t miss out on an epic festival and be sure to get your tickets before they are sold out!
