On Monday, May 22, come celebrate Victoria Day on the island, as Toronto’s Electric Island concert + picnic series kicks off their fifth season! Without a doubt, Electric Island has quickly become the #1 music program for Toronto’s underground dance music community. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the season five opener will feature today’s most prolific DJs including Berlin’s techno ambassador Ben Klock, the incredibly diverse Joris Voorn, House icon Eats Everything, Brooklyn-based duo Bedouin, Britain’s master of chill Leon Vynehall, the eclectic disco-infused duo Red Axes and Kompakt frequenter Rebolledo. As always, the day will also see our favourite locals who will gladly warm-up the dance floor; Night Vision, Andrew Choe, Gera and Alberto Jossue will be holding it down.
Following the recent announcement of a second stage, a new addition to this year’s program, attendees will be able to wander about the lush, green site while taking in the sounds that seep from two stages. While music is the heart of Electric Island, fans can enjoy so much more. Whether it’s the delicious array of our city’s finest food trucks, vibrant, sparkling body paint, or lounging on a blanket with Toronto’s iconic skyline hovering in the background, Electric Island offers a chill vibe for music lovers to congregate.
