Exclusive: Carl Cox contextualizes his return to Electric Zoo, 11 years later [Q&A]

On September 4, Carl Cox will step foot on Randall’s Island for the first time in 11 years. His return to Electric Zoo, recently acquired by Avant Gardner, casts him not only as one of the event’s headliners, but also as a curator. And on the New York festival’s final day of operation, Cox and his worldly ear for underground sound will power Carl Cox Invites, a stage takeover that will feature Andrea Oliva back-to-back Ilario Alicante, Charles Meyer, Chelina Manuhutu, DJ Holographic, Loco Dice, and of course, a set from the White Island favorite himself. Cox discussed the international character of the Invites lineup, his sentiments about returning to Electric Zoo after more than a decade, and what attendees can expect in an exclusive Q&A with Dancing Astronaut.
