Torontos’ electronic music picnic and concert series, Electric Island, is set to conclude this Labor Day weekend. For the first time since its 2013 inception, Electric Island will be spread across two days on Sept. 4th and 5th. The closing weekend will feature an array of acts from the likes of Dixon, Âme (LIVE), Get Real (Green Velvet b2b Claude Von Stroke), Loco Dice, Fatima Yamaha, Nicole Moudaber, Bicep, Guy J, and Justin Martin blending across a series of House and Techno with a splash of Electronic Pop to keep attendees on their toes.
Following the massive success from The Civic Holiday weekend in early August that drew well over 6,000 music lovers and making it one of the most memorable series to date. It is safe to say that the momentum will only carry forward into this weekend as local and international festival-goers will come to celebrate the rise of Toronto’s House & Techno scene, much thanks to the organizer’s relentless effort to push forward on this vision and making the city a bucket list destination for music travelers from around the world for many years to come.
Toronto is a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic CN Tower. The city also has many green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo. Toronto is also known for their great local dining options and outdoor/indoor farmer’s market style such as the St. Lawrence Market. You can be sure we’ll be arriving there a few days early to soak up the city vibe before making our way to Queen’s Quay for the closing weekend of Electric Island 2016.
