Scoping out the food scene at New York City’s premiere electronic music festival may not seem like a priority, but if you can’t even temporarily remove whichever part of your costume is preventing you from eating, there’s going to be a problem. This year, Electric Zoo expands to take over your entire 3-day weekend (thank heavens), featuring a little over half a food vendor for every hour of bass so filthy it makes even the rankest hipster look freshly bathed. That’s right: 36 hours of music, 20 of New York’s finest food trucks and pop-ups. Lose the group for an hour or two and peruse everything these filling stations have to offer. It’s going to be a long few days.
With performers from around the world, E-Z is serving up global cuisine from Latin America to Asia (and just about everything in between). Satisfaction is guaranteed for everyone you know from furrie glutard and vegan computer nerd to Kosher DJ and snobby French techno-blogger.
Carnivorous vendors will only be selling organic, naturally raised meat. In fact, no factory-farmed animal products will be sold at the festival at all, and all servingware and utensils can (and will) be composted. Three more reasons to take off your ski goggles for just enough time to hoover a grass-fed burger and some fresh, organic
beat beet juice before you hit the Hilltop Arena for Diplo, Chromeo, Boys Noize, Moby, Calvin Harris and a bare minimum of 95 others.
Food Republic will be reporting from the festival this weekend, so make sure to let us know what you’re most excited to see, eat, drink or rock out to this year in the comments.
