Tragedy strikes again upon the attendees to this year’s Electric Zoo event.

Despite improved safety measures, nothing could prepare the festival against the force of nature, and heavy rain did more than put a dampener on proceedings.

The festival will not be re-opening and have released the following statement:

Electric Zoo has made the decision to shut down the festival for the remainder of the day. We apologize to our fans, but ultimately our main concern is for the safety and security of all attendees, artists and staff.”
