Above & Beyond Electric Zoo

Sunday of Electric Zoo has been canceled. If you are reading this and getting ready for the festival, stop and go back to bed because today is not happening. In conjunction with the Mayor’s office, Made Event, agreed to cancel Sunday after 2 people died over the course of Friday and Saturday and at least another 4 became seriously ill and needed to be hospitalized. The cause for the hospitalizations is not known yet, but it is presumed to be MDMA consumption. Before we start pointing fingers and blaming this person and that person, realize that this is a tragedy and two people died, so our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the those who died, and we hope for a speedy recovery for those hospitalized. However, at some point these needless deaths at festivals have got to come to an end and soon because they are going to bring this to a halt.

Made Event has released a statement on the matter:

The founders of Electric Zoo send our deepest condolences to the families of the two people who passed away this weekend. Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with the New York City Parks Department that there will be no show today.
