We’re really excited around here for Electric Zoo, so for “research” I’ve been cruising through the non-headliners and planning my attack. I hesitate to call them all smaller artists, but you know what I mean. I’m just pumped for the whole weekend, and if you’re going I’m sure you are too.
*Official set times won’t be announced until just before the festival, so there may be overlap in timing here.
