Less than a year after two people died of drug overdoses at the Electric Zoo Music Festival, its organizers are applying for a permit to return to Randall's Island.

The city Department of Parks and Recreation says it's reviewing an application for a concert during Labor Day Weekend.

Organizers say they've taken a number of steps to ensure the safety of participants, including creating an advisory board to develop security guidelines for the event.

Last summer, the city cut the techno music festival short after the two deaths.
