This past July 1, thousands of Toronto’s electronic music fanatics gathered at The Portlands to ring in Canada’s 150th birthday at Electric Island. Yes, the venue that the long-standing techno celebration earned its name from was inoperable that day, but mind-blowing performances and holiday vibes made “Electric Mainland” a fixture of the Canada Day weekend. This week, organizers announced that Electric Island’s Civic Holiday edition will return to that cityscape location on August 7th.
Rerouting to the downtown core once more, Electric Island brings a colossal lineup to the Portlands location while boasting two stages. The main stage welcomes Jackmaster, Mano Le Tough, KiNK, and Nina Kraviz. The second stage is populated by bumpin’ house music aficionados; Deetron, Dâm-Funk and more. In spite of previous harrowing weather conditions, one of this summer’s most vital underground lineups won’t be stopped! Tickets for the Civic Holday Edition of Electric Island can be purchased HERE.
To Celebrate Electric Island’s August comeback, TRC is giving away a pair of VIP tickets to one lucky person. Follow the directions below to enter.
