Between the event's illustrious bookings & diversified crowd, Electric Island proves that house and techno have a new international destination to call home.

As millions of Americans congregated for Fourth of July fireworks and cookouts, techno elites Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, Recondite, Roman Flügel, Chaim, Atish and more descended on Toronto for another installment of the city’s quadrennial dance gathering, Electric Island, over the holiday weekend.

Typically hosted on the Toronto Islands, this summer’s events thus far have been forced to move onto the mainland due to flooding after torrential downpours throughout the spring. While patrons have grown accustomed to the lush vegetation complemented by a towering skyline backdrop on the island, the move couldn’t dampen the Canadian spirit.
