Electric Island announces season six line-up and May 20 headliners

It’s that time of the year! Electric Island is back once again with an absolutely stacked line-up full of talented DJs. Since 2013, the partners of Electric Island have worked to finesse and refine the long weekend festival. Now for the sixth season of the music festival series, we can look forward to 5 incredible events. This year, save the date for the Electric Island series taking place on Sunday, May 20th, Sunday, July 1st, Saturday, August 11th, Sunday, September 2ndand Monday, September 3rd.

On Sunday, May 20 they’re kicking things off with the very first edition of this summer’s series, with Black Coffee, DJ Tennis, Yokoo, Ellen Allien, Carlio Lio B2B Nathan Barato, and more. The event is taking place on Hanlan’s Point on the Toronto Island and we couldn’t be more stoked. Last year, rain kicked us off the home of Electric Island, so it’s exciting to return to the gorgeous location of Hanlan’s Point.

Remember to get your tickets in advance and grab your ferry ticket ahead of time to save time. You can buy ferry tickets online here.

This year, the line-up of artists coming to us for Electric Island covers all the musical bases. While we can’t possible pick a favorite, some of the DJs we are most excited for is Anjunadeep’s Lane 8, the always amazing Loco Dice, techno queen Nicole Moudabar, up and comer house DJ Shiba San, the talented and entertaining Martinez Brothers, energetic Billy Kenny, and Berlin’s very own Ellen Allien. Not to mention, we will have Toronto’s very own Greg Gow, Carlo Lio b2b Nathan Barato, and a ton of other Toronto local talent.

Taking us from day time, to sunset, and into the night time, Electric Island is sure to impress once again this year. We have absolute confidence that the organizers have some real treats in store for us this year.

No matter what the venue, we will be there front and center to catch the groovy, addictive tunes that will be echoing through the stages at Electric Island. We’re definitely going to all of them! Get your season pass and don’t be shy — hit up all the Electric Island concerts this summer to avoid the FOMO.

Season tickets can be purchased here.
