Zoo Thousand and Eight (ZOO8) will feature Indie, dance, hip-hop, as well as the more family-friendly chart sounds. The festival will accommodate 20,000 festival-goers and camping is located onsite.

Every ticket sold will include a donation to the Aspinal Foundation to help provide for care of the animals and to maintain their enclosures. In addition, animal rescue and rehabilitation projects around the world will be served by your donations. To reduce the environmental impact the organizers encourage car-sharing by offering FREE car parking for cars with 3 or more people on arrival.
