Well isn’t this stage just a diverse mess of awesomeness? In this line-up what you are essentially seeing is a marathon b2b sets with some of the heaviest hitters in each genre game. Just take a look at the names and drink it all in and know that you’ll be in for a treat at this year’s iteration of Electric Zoo. Given the two main stages this year, we’re interested to see how crowded these stages will be but regardless there are some acts that you simply would be remiss to ignore on these stages.
In order to prepare for the days leading up the festival be sure to read up on our previous guides below.
Who You’ll See
Who You Can’t Miss
Tiesto – The Flying Dutchman is renowned for his massive sets that fuse blissed out progressive house with more energetic electro house that always seems to be bang on trend year on year. Definitely the highlight of the line-up for Saturday.
Tiesto – Pair of Dice

Madeon – The fresh faced French youngster’s easily identifiable electro by-the-way of French Touch sound has a distinctive ‘mash up’ style sound to it, especially as he was made famous by his Popcultur video, which saw him mashing up different pop songs on his Novation Launchpad. He brings this raucous cut up sound with him when playing live, bringing two Launchpads with him and doing everything live, bringing a whole new angle to the typical DJ set.
Madeon – Technicolor

Who You Can Pass On
David Guetta – The only issues here is that you will inevitably run into the kids who just started listening to house music on Z100 like, yesterday, and inevitably sing along to every remixed pop song and David Guetta track. Having said that, we’ll pass on Guetta this year.
