Never has it felt so good to trade in that winter coat for a jean jacket, those boots for your favourite kicks, and your scarf for a cool pair of shades. Yes Toronto, spring has sprung and there’s no better way to welcome you from hibernation than with the season six opening event of Electric Island. For the past 6 summers, Electric Island partners Embrace, Footwork and Platform have developed the series, bringing electronic music’s biggest names to the stage, while maintaining that intimate and laid-back concert + picnic vibe. On Sunday, May 20, 2018, gather your crew and head over to Hanlan’s Point for the official season six kick-off!
The opening event is always a special one, so it’s no surprise that Electric Island has called upon a diverse roster of dance music’s finest talent to get the party started. In alphabetical order, the Main Stage will host the highly anticipated Electric Island debut of South African DJ-Producer Black Coffee, a Toronto favourite who’s become an Electric Island household name; it’s Life and Death’s DJ Tennis, Berlin’s techno badass and BPitch Control empress Ellen Allien, Japan’s eccentric and versatile Koki, Montreal’s long-standing powerhouse duo Nymra & Sofisticated, and All Day I Dream frequenter YokoO. From start to finish, the beats at Main Stage will be flowing.
Back again will be the side stage, dubbed this year as the Moog Audio Stage, where music lovers can dwell amongst a more intimate atmosphere. For this edition, the Moog Audio Stage will claim the hearts of Toronto loyalists, as they welcome homegrown talent Carlo Lio b2b Nathan Barato to the decks! From inside the walls of Footwork [Toronto], to the international stages of Paradise, Mindshake, SCI+TEC and more, it’s been an absolute pleasure to watch this twosome explode onto the scene. Joining them will be Toronto’s Chris Larsen and Demuir. There’s no better way to kick off the season than alongside our city’s pioneers.
