With summer right ahead, concert fans of all types have been anxiously awaiting lineup announcements from some of the biggest summer music festivals of the year. One of the most popular music festivals of the season is the New York based Electric Zoo festival. This event features some of the biggest names in electronic music, who come in from all over the world to play a one of a kind festival in New York City.
