Over the past couple weeks we have been re-living the best moments of Electric Zoo (and there are many) but some of my favorite moments were hanging out with a couple of the acts and hearing from them firsthand what they’re up to and what we can expect over the next few months. One of the first interviews I did was with Hardwell. Check out what he had to say about Tiesto, a controversial bootleg package, Sensation and more below.
This coming weekend marks the fourth year that the Electric Zoo Festival will take over Randall’s Island in New York and we can’ t wait! Featuring three days of amazing music and your favorite artists as well as great green initiatives and a fantastic mobile app, this festival promises endless fun and an experience you’re definitely not gonna want to miss. We at Gotta Dance Dirty have compiled our guide to the festival including our artist picks, thoughts on the app, and our top choices for after parties below. Keep an eye out for GDD’s own Burn Unit & Olyvia, who wrote this handy guide up for you, and if you’re wearing GDD merch they just might have some stickers for you. Check it all out after the jump… – Olyvia
Want to win free tickets to the East Coast’s premier Electronic Dance Music festival (forgive my geography, but I don’t count Miami as the East Coast)? Of course you do. Gotta Dance Dirty is giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets for you and a friend to FRIDAY of Electric Zoo 2012 this coming Labor Day Weekend. Please only enter if you’ll actually make it to the festival, would be a shame for us to pick a winner and have no one be a part of this amazing experience.
Wear your Gotta Dance Dirty apparel and you just might run into Burn Unit and score some free stickers! Just follow the directions after the jump to enter through PunchTab, and we’ll notify the winner on Friday the 24th!
