Electric Zoo 2012 August 31, September 1 & September 2
The world-renowned TiŽsto will be returning to Electric Zoo Festival again in 2012, with the headliner spot on Sunday, September 2nd.
Tiesto recently told MTV News: "It is an awesome festival in one of the most incredible settings in the world. How often do you get to play with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop? It is a special experience, being in the middle of a city with such a huge, energetic crowd. If you'd told me this would be possible 10 years ago, I wouldn't have believed you."
His closing peformance the first day of Electric Zoo 2011 was an epic occasion, see the footage by watching In The Booth - Episode 8, TiŽsto's all-access YouTube series (footage starts at 6:13). Said TiŽsto after his set, ďElectric Zoo was sick! The crowd was unbelievable and brought an incredible energy to the city.Ē
There is plenty to promise that 2012's performance will be even better. TiŽsto recently released the track ďWe Own The NightĒ with Wolfgang Gartner, an internationally renowned DJ/producer in his own right, who will be also playing at Electric Zoo this year (on Saturday, September 1st). Says TiŽsto of his collaborator, ďI've been a huge fan of Wolfgang for years. As a producer, there are few out there with the kind of talent he has, so teaming up was always something I was very keen to make happen."

Following on the heels of ďWe Own The NightĒ is TiŽstoís new CLUB LIFE Ė Volume Two Miami mix album, released on his own Musical Freedom imprint and available now. TiŽsto's personal productions and remixes are a driving force behind this mix. In addition to "We Own The Night" he is also behind the original productions "Chasing Summers" and "Make Some Noise," created with the Russian trio Swanky Tunes. Remixes included are of Coldplayís "Paradise," Gotyeís international chart topper "Somebody That I Used To Know," The Naked & Famous' indie anthem "Young Blood," which was remixed alongside the Dutch star Hardwell, and Afrojack's latest hit "Can't Stop Me Now."
The Electric Zoo Festival and TiŽsto are also happy to announce a special Electric Zoo Meet & Greet Contest. Two lucky fans, plus two of their friends, will get to meet the superstar DJ before his set. Details of the Meet & Greet Contest will be posted on the Electric Zoo Facebook Page closer to the event, so be sure to check back for updates.
