The Electric Zoo Festival in New York – A slightly different kind of electric festival
The Electric Zoo Festival takes place yearly over the Labor Day weekend in Randall's Island Park in New York. Visitors danced to the beats of a total of over 100 DJs at the three-day festival this year, including headliners such as Hardwell, Steve Aoki, and Thiësto. NUSSLI realized four stages, a VIP platform, and several ancillary structures for the mega party.
This undertaking involved the NUSSLI Germany events team, the events team from NUSSLI USA, and the production division in Hüttwilen. The biggest highlight was certainly the impressive main stage, over which a gigantic 23 meter high wooden cobra head towered. This sophisticated snake head was manufactured in painstaking detail in Hüttwilen, transported to the United States by ship, partially assembled in Montgomery, and finally transported to New York on trucks.
