WILD FOR THE NIGHT
Can a festival lineup ever become overwhelmingly strong? If so, this is it, as tonight’s Electric Zoo lineup features not only Avicii, Baauer, Knife Party, Skrillex & Boys Noize, and Danny Tenaglia, but all of them playing at the same time. That madness runs from about 9 to 11, but the good stuff starts as early as 2:45, when French turntablist trio Birdy Nam Nam and British garage whiz Joy Orbison take over two of the smaller stages. Also of note: dubstep early adopter Skream, “Hello” crossover star Martin Solveig, “Satisfaction” house populist Benny Benassi, and plenty more. But don’t go too hard—this thing lasts two more days.
