The city and organizers of the Electric Zoo music festival on Randall’s Island confirmed the event has been cancelled for Sunday due to health risks.
During the first two days of the festival, two concert-goers have died and at least four others became critically ill and have been placed in intensive care at area hospitals.
Definitive causes of death have not yet been determined, but investigators say both appear to have involved the drug MDMA, or ecstasy.
The city recommended cancellation of the event’s third and final day, and the event promoters have agreed.
