Who You’ll See

Who You Can’t Miss

A-Trak – Going with the theme of diversity label owner A-trak is a clear choice for an act you can’t miss at Electric Zoo. Festival after festival and club after club A-trak has done it all, over and over again. Calling him a veteran on the turntables is a gross understatement. This man does everything and has been doing it much loner than most of the acts at Electric Zoo. He won the DMC (Disco Mix Club) Championships at the age of 15, oh and he was the opening DJ for Kanye West’s world tour. A-trak’s resume speaks for it’s self and that’s why he’s our act you can’t miss.

Under the Radar Artist

DJ Sliink – The New Jersey native has been making waves recently. SLiink was part of the ‘Nomads’ tour with the Chicago phenoms Flosstradamus. Their collaborative track “CROWD CTRL” is absolutely massive and arguably catapulted my boy into the spot light. Get up bright and early and get yourself to the Fool’s Gold tent. Sliink is opening the stage and will surely set the tempo for the rest of the day.

Who You Can Pass On

Nick Catchdubs – Nick gets a pass from us solely because you won’t be hearing anything new or groundbreaking from his set. Early in the afternoon you can spend your time exploring the camp grounds or people watching. Grab a beer and wait until the legend Just Blaze gets on right after Nick Catchdubs.
