Electric Zoo 2021: Here’s Everything You Need to Know
New York’s premier electronic music festival Electric Zoo is gearing up for its 12th edition this weekend. The "Supernaturals"-themed event will return to Randall’s Island Park—a lush green island sandwiched between Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx on the East River—from September 3rd to 5th.
We’re here to help you find the best afterparties, navigate the festival’s COVID-19 protocols, figure out the smoothest way to get to Randall’s Island, and more.
Though New York City already has a vaccination mandate in place for indoor spaces like movie theaters and music venues, outdoor events like Electric Zoo are left to make COVID-19 entry decisions at their discretion.
Like other large stateside electronic music festivals, Electric Zoo is adapting its entry requirements in response to the pandemic. To gain entry to the festival, you must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Those arriving at Electric Zoo with neither can submit to on-site testing, which costs upwards of $99.
Electric Zoo entry requirements for vaccinated attendees
Proof of a single dose of an FDA- or WHO-approved vaccine is sufficient for entry. These vaccines include Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca/Oxford, Sinopharm, and Sinovac.
Your paper vaccination card, a photo of your card, the NY State Excelsior Pass, or the NYC COVID SAFE app will be considered acceptable documentation.
