Electric Zoo: New York’s Electronic Music Festival is proud to announce the addition of Skrillex to the Main Stage on Sunday, September 2. The multiple Grammy-winning star joins a stellar lineup of the world’s best electronic music artists playing over three days on Randall’s Island Park, New York City, on August 31, September 1 and September 2, 2012.
Since his epic set at Electric Zoo 2011, Skrillex has gone on to sell-out a massive Mothership Tour across North America, take over clubs in Los Angeles and New York, and was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist. With three Grammys under his belt for his chart-topping ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ EP and remix of “Cinema” by Benny Benassi feat. Gary Go, Skrillex dropped his ‘Bangarang’ EP in December, featuring collaborations with The Doors, Wolfgang Gartner, 12th Planet, Kill The Noise and Ellie Goulding. Skrillex returns to Randall’s Island, this time closing out Electric Zoo 2012.
