Following a disastrous Day One a few weeks ago, Electric Zoo 2023, a prominent electronic music festival in New York City, is being sued via a class action lawsuit, according to court documents and earlier reports.
The lawsuit is seeking damages on behalf of all ticket holders who were unable to gain access to Electric Zoo and experienced disruptions during the festival. The complaint characterizes the festival as a “nightmare” and alleges that its organizers breached the terms of the ticket contract by failing to adequately explain the cancellation of the first day and by denying entry to around 7,000 ticket holders on the following Sunday.

Furthermore, the lawsuit contends that festival organizers deliberately delayed announcing the cancellation of Friday’s events in order to continue selling tickets for the Electric Zoo afterparty at Avant Gardner, a venue owned which shares the same owner as Electric Zoo.
In a statement published to ticket holders, Electric Zoo attributed the cancellation of the festival’s first day to “global supply chain disruptions” and cited a lack of professionals to service the event.
Additional legal troubles may soon be on the horizon, as Mayor Eric Adams announced that the city would be pursuing legal action against Electric Zoo in response to these issues.
