Electric Island Canada Day 150 Weekend Review

Even without the island, Toronto's premier event series flourished for Canada 150.

The rain might have postponed this weekends celebrations but it did not stop them from happening. Before the event even started, the E.I team were relentlessly working on securing a venue for the second instalment of the party series and succeeded with The Portlands on Commissioners road.


Once the stage was set, it was left to the artists to make the long weekend memorable for those in attendance. Richie Hawtin had the privilege of closing the day out before artists Maceo Plex and Recondite took the stage to set the mood. The second stage was also set with a number of Toronto locals including Aleksandar Kojic, Borzoo and Nadia before Chaim had closing duties.


Considering the amount of work needed to make an event happen at a new venue in such a small period of time, E.I, even without the I was a very special event. Production, setup, music and everything in between were on display and were taken very seriously with every detail considered.

Though we all hope the next Electric island will actually be on the Toronto islands, it’s fitting to know that the team behind the event series will always go over an beyond, even when their backs are pushed against the wall.

See you in August!
