Come To Life
Come To Life – or CTL – is about rolling life, not face. It’s about not missing one moment of the lights, the music, the celebration. It’s about connecting with music lovers from around the world who’ve come together to experience the time of their lives. It’s about being present and making the right choices. Every moment of Electric Zoo is for you – don’t miss any of it!
Your enjoyment and safety are our top priorities at Electric Zoo, and they should be for you and your crew too. Please take care of yourself, watch out for each other, and know that help is all around you. If you see someone who needs medical attention, rehydration, or just a helping hand, 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 all around you. Know that mixing drugs and alcohol, or frequent and increased use will increase your risks of life-threatening problems. Stay safe, stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, remember to eat, and you will successfully pull off having the time of your life!
Practice moderation. If you’re tired, stop dancing for a bit and take a walk through the cooling tent or chill with your fellow Zoo animals under a tree in the Garden of EZ. If you’re thirsty, drink water, but know that water alone won’t be enough to fuel your body and replenish the electrolytes you lose when you dance. Staying well fed and drinking a sports drink or coconut water throughout the day will keep your body well-nourished and in prime condition to dance into the night!
Drinking too much water without replenishing electrolytes can be dangerous. It’s best to drink a combination of coconut water, sports drinks and water throughout the day.
If you suspect that a fellow Zoo animal is ailing from a medical issue or the use 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!

Always keep in mind, if you require medical aid, tell the medical personnel everything because it may save your life.
There are 2 Help Centers in the middle of the festival field marked with this H icon: and 4 medical aid stations marked with a red cross surrounding the site. They are staffed with emergency medical professionals, and they have water and sports drinks with electrolytes if you need them. There are high speed free water stations on the East and West side of the field and by Main Stage West where you can fill up any vessel from a previous drink purchased at the festival, and there are free cups and free electrolytes available there too.
Check out the map on the Electric Zoo app, festival booklet or neon pink HELP flyer that you can obtain as you enter the festival – and take a moment to familiarize yourself with these areas.
This year, you will see some smiling faces wearing shirts that say ZooKeeper with the icon. They have water and electrolytes for you, and are looking out for you and your fellow Zoo animals. Say hi, smile back, and ask them for help if you need it.
See you at the Zoo!
