Electric Zoo, New York City’s esteemed electronic music festival, is set to ignite Randall’s Island Park Sept 1-3 once again with its highly anticipated 2023 Hyperspace theme. In addition to six fully curated stages from artists and event brands, Electric Zoo is thrilled to announce the momentous festival debut of ‘Under Construction,’ the groundbreaking brand brought to life by house music heavyweights CHRIS LAKE and FISHER. Taking over the recently unveiled MegaMirage stage on Friday, September 1, ‘Under Construction’ will dazzle fans with an extraordinary showcase of CHRIS LAKE& FISHER’S favorite artists plus a special B2B set.
‘Under Construction’ represents a powerful collaboration between two titans of the industry, each known for their distinct style in the studio, on the decks, and as label curators. CHRIS LAKE has earned numerous chart-topping hits such as “Turn Off The Lights” while also spearheading his widely acclaimed Black Book Records imprint. FISHER is the iconic Australian maestro known not only for his label Catch & Release but also for slinging dancefloor anthems like his grammy nominated smash “Losing It,” along with multiple singles that dominated the charts, topped over a billion streams, and ignited countless raves worldwide.
Electric Zoo’s all new immersive MegaMirage stage provides the perfect backdrop for this takeover. From the brilliant minds behind The Brooklyn Mirage, this stage is located on a secluded part of the expanded festival grounds, so unique that it will have its own dedicated entrances and exits – without the need for a second ticket.
Taking the stage is CLOONEE, a true genius in the art of sampling and crafting mesmerizing tech house beats. MAU P, a rising star in the electronic music scene, has a sizzling repertoire that has been making waves worldwide.
Ever since my first tour in the US earlier this year, NYC has held a special place in my heart. The shows we did there absolutely went off, so needless to say I’m looking forward to the next round at Electric Zoo’s Under Construction Stage! I have a few tricks up my sleeve this summer which I’m super excited about and I can’t wait to share it all with you in September.Mau P
REBŪKE, a trailblazer within the house realm, has created a fascinating twist on the underground sounds of techno, house and industrial, and always delivers adrenaline-fueled sets. HONEYLUV will infuse the stage with her irresistible hip hop-infused house beats and vibrant energy while YOLANDA BE COOL will unleash their unmistakable party vibes. Finally, CHARLES MEYER, a beloved local favourite in the NYC electronic music scene, returns to EZoo to offer his signature four on the floor grooves.
I love playing in New York, the crowd’s love for house music, and the welcoming and warming atmosphere makes me super excited to come back to the city and experience it all over again with Under Construction at EZoo.Honeyluv
