Keeping track of the set schedule just isn’t meant to be at Electric Island, all the music played each day sounds like very long, fun tracks. Of course, each artist designs his set in a particular way but it’s all meant to be very smooth. And it was smooth.
The site at Hanlan’s Point looked great. The stage and the lights were good and gave a feeling of inclusivity even if you’re far from the stage. I’ve heard some complaints about the volume not being loud enough but I thought it was a good thing and I like how they went for equally distributed sound across the main stage area. I’m sure the cooling area was a highlight for many.
On day one, it seemed like everybody was excited for Green Velvet and Claude Vonstroke but to me Nicole Moudaber stole the show. I saw people way in the back dancing just like they would in front of the stage.
The Panasonic stage was a tiny refuge for those who like their space for dancing. I also noticed that the music at the Panasonic stage was a little faster in rhythm than the main stage.
The closing set by Green Velvet and Vonstroke made people arrive late on day two, or maybe it was the after parties.
I had a great time at Electric Island, I thought it was cool that so many people can so easily connect to continuous electronic beats and have this much fun. I also thought that Hanlan’s Point was the perfect venue for this kind of event.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures.
