Plastikman Live 1.5 Show Cancelled; Richie Hawtin playing DJ set with special LED visuals insteadPosted 02 Sep, 2011
Due to unforeseen circumstances caused by Hurricane Irene last week, the Plastikman 1.5 live show will not be able to proceed tonight as originally planned.
Electric Zoo will now be presenting a special one hour Richie Hawtin DJ set with the Ali Demiral LED visuals show. This will take place at 10pm-11pm in the Hilltop Arena – the same arena where Plastikman would have performed.
From Richie Hawtin, "Plastikman Live is a technically challenging show that has appeared successfully in over a dozen countries over the past year. My production team has been on site in NYC since Tuesday working alongside the Electric Zoo production team preparing for this show, and they have done everything within their powers to address the challenges that have been presented at the event. Sadly it has not worked out and we regret to announce that Plastikman will not perform in New York this weekend. We are excited, in light of the situation, that we are able to present this LED visual show similar to the shows that we present at other festivals around the world".
Richie Hawtin will also still headline the Sunday School Grove on Sunday at Electric Zoo.
