Electric Zoo veteran, David Guetta returns to headline the Main Stage at Randall’s Island Park on Friday, August 29. Having already set a hugely impressive precedent so far in 2014, scooping three consecutive Beatport #1 successes with a trio of meticulously worked, club-focused tracks including “Shot Me Down” and “Bad,” as well as announcing a host of coveted Ibiza residencies and festival appearances, David Guetta is back with news of an eagerly awaited summer single just in time for summer festival season. “Lovers On The Sun”, featuring a standout vocal from rising star Sam Martin, is a testament to how Guetta’s sound has continued to evolve since the release of landmark, Grammy-nominated albums ‘One Love’ and ‘Nothing But The Beat’ and is sure to make a make a big impression on the charts this summer and this Labor Day weekend at the Electric Zoo Festival.
This year Electric Zoo is offering special pricing to kick of the Labor Day weekend on Friday, August 29 giving fans the opportunity to see over 60 of the biggest names in dance music, plus transportation – all for just $79.

New single “Lovers On The Sun” is centered around Martin’s excellent vocal, and Guetta, alongside co-producers Avicii, Giorgio Tuinfort & Frederic Riesterer, exhibit just how far their esteemed production skills stretch across the precision-engineered, thoroughly immersive dance music. Shimmering guitar melodies, innovative beat programming and a series of expertly timed instrumental breakdowns give ‘Lovers On The Sun’ the genuine, feel-good energy that only the biggest and best dance records can command.
Also showcasing the collaborative side to high-end dance music, not to mention David’s willingness to work alongside some of his favorite contemporaries, “Lovers On The Sun” makes for a compelling record. Perfectly geared towards the summer, it’s a track that underlines Guetta’s ability to elevate electronic music beyond the normal realms of chart-driven possibility and one that already feels like a crossover hit single in waiting.
Having only just released the last of his club transmissions for the year in “Blast Off” featuring Australian producer Kaz James, as well as announcing residencies at both Pacha and Ushuaia in Ibiza, an extensive run of European festival dates and closing out the summer season at NYC’s annual dance music celebration Electric Zoo New York, 2014 is already shaping up to one of Guetta’s busiest year’s yet. Now, with “Lovers On The Sun” also firmly on the horizon, there is scope for 2014 to be one of the most successful yet too.

There will be more party animals at the Zoo this Labor Day Weekend than ever before, and we want to make sure you all enjoy it thoroughly and get home safely. Please watch out for each other, and know that help is all around you. If you see someone slip, trip, or overheat, someone who needs medical attention, rehydration, or just a helping hand, please keep the positive vibe alive, and be a friend to a friend in need.
Electric Zoo strongly advocates against the use of drugs. Avoiding drug use is the only way to completely avoid drug-related risks. You don’t need drugs anyway when world class music is swirling all around you. Know that mixing drugs and alcohol, or frequent and increased use, will increase your risks of life-threatening problems. Here’s some math to go with that: Drugs or alcohol + Non-stop Dancing + Sun Exposure = Dehydration and a whole spectrum of other dangerous conditions. So stay safe, stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, remember to eat, and you will successfully pull off having the time of your life! If you suspect that someone is ailing from a medical issue or the overuse of drugs or alcohol, seek immediate medical attention.
Keep an eye out for these signs and symptoms in yourself and others, if you or a friend experience even just one sign seek medical help immediately:
- Blurred Vision
- Inability to talk
- Racing Heartbeat
- Muscle tremors
- Discolored lips or nail-beds
- Shallow breathing
There are medical aid stations marked with a red cross in the four corners of the main field and to the left of Main Stage East. They are staffed with emergency medical professionals, and they have water if you need it. Keep the neon pink HELP POINTS flyer that you can obtain as you enter the festival in your back pocket for info in a hurry, and keep the positive party vibes flowing by looking out for each other.
