By Kaivan Adjedani, Senior Editor. Electric Island, Toronto’s most anticipated summer event, makes it’s fourth season debut on Victoria Day at Hanlan’s Point on the Toronto Islands. This summer concert series blends all of the best elements; good music, great venue, and the best vibes, for an absolutely must attend concert experience. The inaugural concert takes place this Monday May 23rd, on Victoria’s Day, with a stacked line-up featuring Job Jobse, DJ Tennis, Jamie Jones, and Sven Väth.
Electric Island organizers put in just as much effort into providing a great overall experience for fans as they do into carefully selecting world class acts to headline the stage. Needless to say, these two things aren’t mutually exclusive of one another. The line-up this Monday has been organized to ensure that the music goes hand in hand with the overall mood of the event as the day progresses. The first two acts booked, Job Jobse and DJ Tennis, are on the lighter and slower side of the tech house spectrum; perfect to play into the hot summer day when the event is more over on the casual side of things.
Jamie Jones and Sven Väth are set to play when the sun begins to go down, which this time around will be quite early compared to all the other concerts closer to the middle of the summer. Jamie Jones, hailing from the UK, has been known for exposing some of the hottest tech house and techno tracks throughout his sets. Jones is also a co-owner of established deep house label Hot Creations, so there is no one better to transition the island from hot summer beach beats to darker tech house tunes for the night. Cocoon Recordings boss Sven Väth will close the nigh out with some hard hitting Berlin techno, which will be appropriate once the complete darkness takes over and the light show begins. His performance two years ago on the very same weekend left the entire island buzzing, so it’s an understatement to say Toronto is pumped to see him back again.
The season opener kicks off at 2PM on Victoria Day. You definitely do not want to miss the first, or any concerts in this season’s stacked Electric Island summer line-up.
