Corona Sunsets was an amazing event. This summer has been a blast for electronic music lovers of Toronto as we’ve been spoiled with a lot of happenings across all kinds of different venues and unconventional places. Hanlan’s Point was turned into a mini-festival with a good selection of deep house, techno and progressive house acts to deliver an unforgettable experience, even if it rained a little.

What made the festival special for me was the sound system and the displays they constructed around the festival grounds. I felt the sound levels were optimal for enjoying the music without it overpowering everything else going on making it for a relaxed atmosphere where you could still have a conversation with your

friends. The grounds were decorated with fixtures built from skids giving it a wooden motif throughout.

The griffin stage was designed to resemble the sun and during the night time it would light up according to the music. An awesome fireworks show went off at the very end leaving the audience, including myself, in awe. The crowd stage was set up on Toronto’s famous clothing optional beach with the water acting as the backdrop of the stage. Unfortunately there was a little bit of rain, but everyone was still down to party despite the moisture on the ground, everyone continued to party.

Local DJs such as Jeff Button and HolloH gave the event some good Toronto flavor then Lee Foss and Cajmere set the mood just right for the rest of the evening. Moby hyped the crowd up with a progressive big room house set which was a nice change from the stuff that was played prior to his set.

This event will go down as one of the series of amazing dance parties Torotontonians have experienced. I really hope it comes back next year!
