No Flower Headbands at This Music Festival

Ravers donned their flimsiest finery for the Electric Zoo music festival in New York.

Labor Day weekend began with a bass drop on Randalls Island. For the 13th edition of the Electric Zoo music festival, attendees wore bucket hats, patterned short suits, leg elastics, harnesses and very little else for New York City’s annual contribution to the global EDM party circuit. We caught up with a few ravers on the first day of the festival, as they swapped hugs and handmade plastic beaded bracelets (a.k.a. “candy”) before Diplo’s sunset DJ set.
