New York’s premiere electronic dance music festival Electric Zoo will be taking over Randall’s Island for three full days. One of the headliners on it’s final day is the wildly popular Belgian DJ Felix De Laet — otherwise known as Lost Frequencies. We caught up with him before this weekend to see what he has in store for this year’s festival.

You will be playing the main stage at this year’s Electric Zoo Festival. Is playing these larger festivals more special than playing clubs?
Lost Frequencies: Playing clubs is fun because the fans (most of the time!) are specifically attending to see you either as a headline act of part of a line-up, but with festivals, there could be hundreds of artists and acts – but I enjoy that! I grew up going to festivals since my early teens and Electric Zoo, from what I’ve heard, is crazy! I love New York and the festival vibe is so big in the US across the whole scene, everyone embraces all genres from trap to big room and house sounds, so I still feel lucky, excited and ready to bring the party to all my fans over there!
What makes playing in New York different than any other city?
Lost Frequencies: The diversity, for sure! All different cultures and ages enjoying multiple styles of dance and electronic music is something I really enjoy seeing and the type of crowds that are so much fun to play to, where I can really the audiences. Oh, and the Randall’s Island location looks super cool!
This is your first time playing Electric Zoo. Have you ever been to the festival before? Do you have any surprises in store?
Lost Frequencies: I have not been before, but it is one that has been on my want-to-play list, the perfect time to visit NYC is the end of the Summer in my eyes. I do have some surprises, some new tracks from my Found Frequencies label and exclusive edits for you guys…
Lastly — What is your favorite pre-show meal?
Lost Frequencies: I am the biggest sushi fan! Sashimi and Nigiri are my favorites!
