Whip out your best neon animal print and matching spandex because this weekend Electric Zoo takes over Randall’s Island Park in New York City for a weekend of underage wastedness.


But, all jokes aside, Electric Zoo features some of the worlds leading DJs who are changing the way we listen to music. If you’re on the hunt for the artists from Ibero-America taking over the stage, check out these sets over the weekend:

Paco Osuna

Spending the better part of his teen years at the iconic Studio 54, this Barcelona born DJ will be performing on the Sunday School Awakenings stage at 7pm on Saturday.

The Martinez Brothers

These Bronx-bred brothers started out at New York City’s hottest underground clubs like The Loft and Paradise Garage, but they don’t leave their Boricua roots far behind. Check them out when they take over the Sunday School Awakenings stage at 7pm on Friday.

DJ Ace Alvarez

Drawing inspiration from his Argentinian roots and Queens upbringing DJ Ace Alvarez will be on the Vitamin Water Treehouse Stage Sunday at 6:15pm on Sunday.

Based on their names, you might be expecting these next two acts on to be mixing in some bachata between tracks, but besides their monikers there’s nothing Latino about them. Still, they’re two acts you should definitely check out:


Amber Giles grew up steeped in Latin culture. Of her “Mija” moniker, she says “One of my friends actually gave it to me as a nickname and with all the Mexican culture in Phoenix, it kinda stuck and so I went with it.”

Landing her first festival gig by chance in 2012, Mija, is relatively new to the game, but she’s earned her spot in the male dominated world of EDM. She’ll be on the Riverside stage at 3pm on Friday.

Don Diablo

This Dutch DJ vocalizes most of his tracks and is an in-demand producer for acts like Madonna and Ed Sheeran. He will be taking the Main Stage at 3:45pm on Friday.
