Feed The Animals Pt. III (Electric Zoo Review)
And then it was the last day. Everything in our lives had become so casually predictable, but in the best of ways. Wake up. Eat breakfast (first and last meal of the day). Get to EZoo. Meander from tent to tent. Dance a little. Sit in the grass. Drink water. Dance more. Enjoy the weather. Talk to friends. And dance more until the night was over again. Our world had become so finite. Nothing really mattered besides the stages, tents, water stands, bathrooms, and fields. I think one of the beautiful things about the festival atmosphere, is the ability to strip away your thoughts about everything peripheral to the concert. I’m not going to start a metaphysical rambling about rave culture (perhaps I’ve already lost most of you), but I do think some of this is worth consideration.
Anyways, we arrived the third day hoping to catch a little bit of Alesso’s set, but just missed him. So instead, we chilled out for a bit near the Hilltop Arena where Big Gigantic was ripping an impressive set, complete with live saxophone, piano, drums and more. I was more or less KO’d from exhaustion, so I botched it and barely listened, but what I did hear sounded really dope. Once we had collected ourselves for a couple minutes, those of us who arrived early headed over to the main stage to catch Swedish house producer, John Dahlback.
