electric zoo ny day three canceled

Heightened security, anti-molly PSAs and drug-sniffing dogs couldn’t stop the wrath of Mother Nature yesterday. Severe thunderstorms rolled across the Northeast on Sunday forcing Made Event, the promoters behind New York’s three-day electronic-music festival Electric Zoo held on Randall’s Island in New York City, to shut down the third and final day.
