With spring in the air, Electric Islanders will voyage across Lake Ontario to Hanlan’s Point island, in anticipation. Once they step foot onto the island, the music from the Main Stage will permeate through the grassy walkway, leading guests to the sounds of bonafide industry veteran Dubfire, Berlin masterminds ÂME [DJ Set], the burgeoning Brooklyn pair Bedouin, who have come to embody the deeper, desert-inspired music, Detroit’s ‘Women on Wax’ founder DJ Minx, and Toronto favourites Jonathan Rosa, and Carerra & Tavares.

The Moog Audio Stage will host Canadian record label Rawthentic with a special showcase, featuring a fire back-to-back set with Toronto’s very own tech-house titans and [Rawthentic] label founders Carlo Lio and Nathan Barato, ‘house gangster’ and purveyor of jackin’ beats DJ Sneak, the sultry sounds of Puerto-Rican-born, Berlin-based Caleb Calloway, and finally Chicago house hero DJ Deeon, who’s best known for his all-night marathon sets and hedonistic disco! There you have it! The season opener is not to be missed, so dust off those dancing shoes, and get ready for season seven! Limited single early bird passes are now on sale! Stay tuned for the Electric Island Season lineup announcements coming soon!
