Shanghai, November 14, 2016 – After the massively successful Electric Zoo: Wild Island festival in New York City over Labor Day weekend, Made Event is delighted to announce 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
