After the tragedy that struck at one of the most eminent electronic music festivals last year, Electric zoo is making amends by introducing “Zookeepers” who will ensure the safety of its rave animals this year.
An unfortunate turn had taken place for Electric Zoo last year as two lives were lost due to use of illegal substance, leading the festival to end a day earlier than it was planned to. “We were devastated. It was – and I mean it – my and Laura’s worst fear, come to life”, stated Mike Bindra, the co-creator of Electric Zoo in an interview with New York Times. In an effort to restore the trust of fest-goers, Mike Bindra and Laura dePalma have decided to include a troop of medical students that could provide the festival attendees with required medical attention.
We only hope that these efforts succeed in making the upcoming event a wonderful experience for the ravers!
