Due to serious health risks, The Electric Zoo music festival on September 1st was cancelled. The City recommended cancellation and the event promoters agreed.
During the first two days of the Electric Zoo music festival, two concert-goers died and at least four others became critically ill and have been placed in intensive care at area hospitals. The definitive cause of death has not been determined but it seems to be drug related. The Electric Zoo organizers have worked with City officials to reduce health risks at this event, but in view of these occurrences, the safest course was to cancel the last day of the event.
At least the organizers didn’t take the easy way out and actually offered a refund for the last day of the event.
Sadly our coverage of this years Electric Zoo 2013 (NYC) Music Festival comes to a sad end and we send our condolences to the families of the people who passed away.
