ihome presents identity festival toronto review
Yesterday Identity Festival took the tour over the border for massive party at Echo Beach in Toronto, Ontario. As early as 3pm, fans packed the beach to listen to the Static Revenger, Le Castle Vania and Eva Simons tear up the iHome main stage. Toronto really came to party, as a massive crowd went absolutely nuts for LCV when he dropped his recent remix of Kaskade’s “Turn It Down.”
Afterwards, Arty, The Bingo Players and Madeon kept the party going strong. The French prodigy had the crowd roaring as he dropped his remix of Marin Solveig’s “The Night Out;” it was a perfect compliment to the gorgeous sunset over the Toronto skyline. Over on the Rockstar stage, Audrey Napoleon delivered a heavy set to a very excited audience. She was followed by a killer performance from Showtek. Coming off a recent release with Tiësto, and an upcoming collaboration with Hardwell, the hard-hitting duo is quickly becoming a must-see on ID this summer; with the combination of their original production, amazing energy and a cryo-gun, they easily took over the Rockstar stage.
Soon after, Excision’s giant X took form and bass-heavy beats blasted from the subs. The crowd was treated to a fantastic two and a half hours of serious dustup from Excision and then Nero. Over on the iHome stage, Eric Prydz played to arguably the biggest audience since his triumphant return to the US. This scene put Prydz in his element and thousands of fans were in complete awe of the incredible production and music on the beach. In the middle of his set, Prydz slowly built to a chills-inducing drop of his hit “2Nite” that had everyone’s hands in the air. The mood post-show was ecstatic, with everyone from artists to production crew incredibly psyched over a phenomenal show. Now to Boston for some R&R and then Mansfield on Thursday.
