By Kaivan Adjedani, Senior Editor. Electric Island, Toronto’s most anticipated underground electronic event series, just released the line-up for their 2016 concerts. The acts seem to be catered to all genres of the electronic music spectrum, from the more mainstream-friendly tech house of Green Velvet all the way to the hardcore Berlin techno sounds of Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann. The concert series even added a fifth event this year, splitting the last event into two days taking place on September 4th and 5th.
Now entering it’s fourth season, Toronto has seen Electric Island take over the city by storm. Since it’s inception in 2013 as a small electronic event for the local underground scene, Electric Island has become the staple must-attend event of the summer for Toronto. While the music is killer, the good vibes of the event are what sets Electric Island apart from other concerts of its sort. There are tons of activities, food trucks, and vendors to explore before you decide you want to party. Our advice, take advantage of all that the concert has to offer; grab a sapporo, a poutine, and get a game in on one of the Ping Pong tables before you actually head over to the stage.
The individual event lineups themselves will be released closer to the event dates. We ourselves will be attending all of these events, as the line-up is too good to skip out on. If you have to narrow it down however, make sure you catch Gui Boratto in the sun, Loco Dice in the darkness, and Guy Gerber and Nitin wherever they are in between.
