Finally, the warmer weather is up, on us, and that means Electric Island Season Opener is around the corner. On May 20, we kick-off the Electric Island picnic series with Black Coffee, DJ Tennis, YokoO, Ellen Allien and more. Grab your Electric Island ticket and ferry ticket today and get ready to ring in the beginning of summer with good music and your best festival buddies.
This year, Electric Island is back at Hanlan’s Point after having to take a break last year due to flooding. We can’t be more excited to return to the gorgeous scenery of the Toronto Island. With two stages, you can hop between main stage and side stage catching different tunes and different vibes. The main stage offers that big festival crowd we all love, while the side stage hosts a more intimate environment for those looking to get away from it all.
On the main stage, you can hear the likes of South African DJ-Producer Black Coffee for his Electric Island debut, Burning Man’s DJ Tennis, Berlin’s techno powerhouse Ellen Allien, the eccentric and unique Koki, Montreal’s duo Nymra & Sophisticated, and All Day I Dream frequenter YokoO for some melodic deep house vibes. On the Moog Audio Stage (side stage), we’ll be blessed with Toronto’s own talent such as Carlo Lio b2b Nathan Barato Chris Larsen and Demuir.
Remember, get your ferry tickets in advance so you can hop right on the Toronto ferry at the docks without waiting in line. Pack your festival backpack, your favourite jeans or leather jacket, comfy dancing shoes, and bring an appetite for the yummy food trucks.
We’ll see you on the Island!
