It was suppose to be one of the biggest nights in Electric Zoo history!
Three of the world’s top DJs: Avicii, David Guetta, and Diplo were scheduled to deliver some memorable sets that would have made lasting memories on the concertgoers.
The party, however, came to a sudden and tragic end.
The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly reported that two music lovers were found dead and multiple concertgoers felt ill after attending the once-a-year concert on Randall’s Island in the East River.
Since the announcement of the music festival’s cancellation, The New York Times revealed that the two deaths (20-year-old Providence native Olivia Rotondo and 23-year-old Rochester native Jeffrey Russ) were connected to MDMA (known by the narcotics community as Molly or Ecstasy).
Recently, the New York Daily News revealed that the Electric Zoo creator Mike Bindra, ran an infamous nightclub where it was known to local authorities as a cover-up to a drug operation.
There have been no statements to see if the Electric Zoo will return for another installment in 2014.
Fans can get their refunds by visiting a web page created by the concert’s promoter, Made Event.
