Livestyle’s newest entertainment brand AMFAMFAMF helmed by tastemaker and music executive Gary Richards aka DESTRUCTO is brining All My Friends to Electric Zoo’s 10 Year anniversary. Look for the AMFAMFAMF stage takeover to be an extravaganza of what is cool and current in dance music.
AMFAMFAMF drops into ELECTRIC ZOO: THE BIG 10 at Randall’s Island Park on Saturday, September 1 at the Hilltop Arena.

Established in 2009 by Made Event, the internationally renowned Electric Zoo Festival is one of New York City’s largest music festivals and features the top names in electronic music, bringing a wide variety of acts from around the world and across the spectrum of electronic music’s various sub-genres. International editions of Electric Zoo have taken place in Mexico City, Tokyo, Shanghai and São Paulo, with further expansion underway.
Brainchild of the fearless duo Zeds Dead, Deadbeats Records has been tearing it up so far this year, turning heads and cutting rug at WMC and launching a major North American tour which sees the crew make a very special pitstop in NYC for Electric Zoo’s 10 Year anniversary.
“It’s been almost 3 years since we last played Electric Zoo and we’re stoked to be back!” says Zeds Dead. “This time we’re taking over a stage for a day and bringing our Deadbeats Tour to EZoo. No better way to celebrate EZoo Ten than by throwing together a stacked lineup of some of our best friends and label mates, crazy new music, and a whole bunch of surprises. See you there!”
Look for Zeds Dead‘s new single this Friday (6/15) with “KILL EM” – a collaboration with 1000VOLTS (Redman X Jayceeoh). Pre-save “KILL EM”on Spotify here.
Deadbeats drops into ELECTRIC ZOO: THE BIG 10 at Randall’s Island Park on Saturday, September 1 at the Hilltop Arena. Zeds Dead will be joined by South London producer TroyBoi, OWSLA favorites Mija, Habstraktand Chuurch, low-slung bass players Eprom and GG Magree, and wonderkidDNMO.
All those moons ago, who would have thought that the weekender that roared to life on NYC’s Randall’s Island in 2009–which featured a fresh-faceddeadmau5, a pre-cake Aoki and the late-great Frankie Knuckles–would become a household name in the global dance festival scene? Since then,Electric Zoo has been welcome across the globe with the brand touching down in such far off places as Shanghai, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Mexico City.
From its earliest expeditions through the chaotic urban jungle, to scaling the feral lands of the Wild Island, and getting our minds blown by the gritty 6th Boro,ELECTRIC ZOO: THE BIG 10 celebrates what a ride it’s been.
Phase 1 is finally out for Electric Zoo and boy oh boy this lineup sure is stacking up to be an all-time best for EZoo. When taking a quick glance you’ll notice names like Seven Lions, Excision, Sasha b2b John Digweed, Above & Beyond and Deadmau5 b2b Eric Prydz. With only phase 1 out this is enough to bring all EDM fans from different sub-genres together.
