Electric Zoo Evacuated Due to Storm Threat, Final Day Canceled
The Electric Zoo festival on Randall's Island in New York has been cut short on its final day and fans are being evacuated due to extreme weather conditions.
With severe thunder storms rolling into the area, organizers apologized to its EDM fans, saying in a press release, "In collaboration with New York City officials, Electric Zoo has made the decision to shut down the festival for the remainder of the day. We apologize to our fans, but ultimately our main concern is for the safety and security of all attendees, artists and staff."
