The mini-festival gave both headliners an equal opportunity to shine. While Pretty Lights closed out Friday night’s music after opening sets from SuperVision, PANTyRAID and Bassnectar, respectively, Bassnectar gave the final performance of Saturday night preceded by Koan Sound, Run The Jewels and then Pretty Lights.
As many people look back at Electric Zoo this weekend, the emotions widely vary. Between the heartbreaking reasons behind the disappointing and contentious cancellation of Day 3, and the ongoing debate as to whether or not the right decision was made, it can be easy to look past all the good that happened this weekend. With that being said, we should not ignore what has occurred, but learn from it. Instead of thinking about what we missed out on, let’s remember what we experienced. Day 2 of Electric Zoo brought together thousands of electronic dance music listeners from all over the world to Randall’s Island for a day packed with performances from our favorite artists. Let us reflect on these positive moments that have created beautiful memories that we should not allow to be overshadowed by the negative.
