Relive The Magic of Electric Island Festival Guam 2016 [Photos]

 

Guam is truly a paradise island, and its people are as welcoming, fun, energetic and loving as any you can find anywhere on our beautiful world. Less than two weeks ago, the people of Guam took part in the fourth annual installment of Electric Island Festival, a boutique electronic music event that for the first time in its history expanded to two days and took place at the Guam International Raceway.

This year’s EIF continued with its tradition of highlighting top-tier International talent from as far as Europe, mainland United States and nearby Asia, as well as showcasing several of Guam’s own home-bred artists. It did so while underscoring several of dance music’s most popular genres, including EDM, bass, house, techno, deep house and more, as well as welcoming the return of WOMB Tokyo as hosts of a dedicated stage.

EIF Lineup

The people of Guam responded en mass, with thousands attending the two-day celebration and joining the hundreds that traveled from afar to visit the island and attend EIF 2016. The sheer number of off-island visitors once again showcased the island of Guam’s power as a true destination for Music Tourism.

With EIF 2016 now behind, organizers are already looking forward to the 5 Year Anniversary celebration in store for next year! Ensure you follow EIF on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on the upcoming 2017 edition.
