Made Event Unveils the Electric Zoo 2022 Lineup
New York's quintessential dance music festival, Electric Zoo, returns to Randalls Island Park in New York City on September 2-4. Made Event, the festival organizers, just dropped the 2022 lineup, and as always, it's immense, diverse, and an excellent encapsulation of the breadth of dance music's many sounds and flavors.
Topping the bill out are Chris Lake, Carl Cox, Porter Robinson, Subtronics, Tchami, Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Gorgon City, Joel Corry, and John Summit.
If you've never been, the views of Manhattan from the island are spectacular, making the transition from day to night colorful and dramatic. Sunset slots on the main stage are always highly-anticipated and carefully curated. This year DJ Snake and Diplo will guide the festival into the evening. A third sunset slot is noticeably absent from today's announcement, meaning a delicious surprise is probably in store.
Electric Zoo has long been ahead of the curve in booking innovative up-and-comers who will soon be headlining festival stages. The 2022 lineup is full of undercard acts that are a must-see. QRTR, A Hundred Drums, Capozzi, Devon James, Kyle Walker, Nala, Rome In Silver, and Truth x Lies have all stood out in their respective spaces and will undoubtedly bring the heat.
This year EZoo is going in on the house lineup, bringing out acts from across the spectrum to represent the diverse sounds of the genre.
European acts like Chelina Manuhutu and Andrea Oliva, Ilario Alicante, and Bontan may be new to the US but have long been staples across the pond. And Lucati, AC Slater, Gordo, Sidepiece, CID, Biscits, Taiki Nulight, and Malaa all bring a unique flavor to the bill.
One of the primary features of the EZoo lineups are the stage takeovers by some of the biggest brands in the game. As always, Sunday School for Degenerates will host their all house and techno lineup. And this year, EZoo has added Jauz led imprint Bite This!, LA's sticky-sweet underground collective Brownies and Lemonade, French bass house purveyors Confession, and the legendary Carl Cox to create the perfect Labor Day weekend vibes.
