After the massively successful Electric Zoo: Wild Island festival in New York City over Labor Day weekend, Made Event announced that Electric Zoo’s first outing in Shanghai, China officially sold out!
Electric Zoo: Countdown Shanghai, a partnership between Made Event and Kanjian—one of Asia’s leading music service companies—took place November 12 at Shanghai’s Expo Park and featured a lineup of world-class performers, including Dada Life, Sander van Doorn and Oshi. In addition to creating incredible themed environments specifically for the event, Countdown included various highlights from New York’s Electric Zoo: Wild Island, from dazzling stage design to animal-themed costume performers and much more.
“Electric Zoo was absolutely amazing! The crowd was so energetic, from the moment they started dancing, they didn’t stop during my whole set. Haven’t experience something like this before in China!” – Sander van Doorn
“Loved playing at Electric Zoo: Shanghai. The crowd was incredible, production was amazing and we can’t wait to be back for future years!” – Dada Life
Electric Zoo: Countdown Shanghai marks a historic step into one of the world’s most exciting emerging electronic music markets and cements Electric Zoo’s reputation as one of the world’s most forward-thinking event producers. Made Event and Kanjian are already planning to hold another Electric Zoo festival in Shanghai in 2017.
“It was amazing to see how people get so excited for what we will bring here in 2017. To KANJIAN, it’s only the start. As an emerging music ecological company, we are looking forward for a bright future in partnership with Made Event and its sister brands.” – Mr Shenjia, CEO of Kanjian
With a legacy of excellence in electronic music, the wildest themes, and the boldest production, Electric Zoo has become one of the most recognizable global festival brands in the world, bringing their immersive production and distinct vibes from New York to Mexico City, Tokyo and now Shanghai. With a lot more on the horizon, Electric Zoo is committed to expanding its brand worldwide.
“We are very humbled that the very first Electric Zoo show in Shanghai has sold out. Local fans have really inspired us with their endless energy, big warm smiles and groovy dance moves. We can’t wait to return and produce a bigger version of our festival next year.” – Michael Julian, Director of Marketing, Made Event
