When the Electric Island season lineup was announced a couple weeks ago, Toronto was elated to see many of house and techno’s cherished names. The next question was who would be joining us at the season opener on May 23rd? Today, we’re happy to announce that very news. Kicking off the Victoria Day long weekend, Toronto will be joined by the likes of Sven Väth, Jamie Jones, DJ Tennis and Job Jobse, with support from Toronto local favourites Nature of Music, Jonathan Rosa and Brian Johnson.
As always, the lineup boasts an impressive variety of music to appease Toronto’s underground community. Fans will be able to get their techno fix when the legendary Sven Väth aka “Papa Sven” joins us at Electric Island for the second time. There will be a surplus of uplifting and powerful, hypnotic soundscapes provided by both Amsterdam’s Job Jobse and Life & Death label boss DJ Tennis. Not to mention, the hefty dose of upbeat, funky house grooves provided by Paradise chief, Jamie Jones. The countdown is officially on! See you on the Island… xx
