SummerDaze

Summerdaze Season Opener x 5 Year Anniversary
By Creators’ Lounge staff Yui Yoshikawa(Torocal Girls / トロカル女子)

On May 15th, the SummerDize season kicked off at Steam Whistle Brewery. This attractive event has been held at various venues every summer and this year marks the 5th anniversary. People are able to enjoy the club music and various kinds of art at this party.

The venue is the iconic brewery in Toronto, familiar to the local people. It provided an open space made of wood and sunlight.
The food and accessory vendors were produced by local artists.

Fortunately the NBA game was held at the same time and the screen was set behind the DJ booth. Watching the Toronto Raptors game with electro mix music and Steam Whistles’ beer… It was exactly Torontonian style.

However, the DJ booth and accessory vendors created a sort of Asian resort style. Also, there was an origami trial space. There were not only local products but also oriental essences. Moreover, participants seemed to prefer to street style, and yet there were high-end atmosphere. Those opposite factors caused an amazing chemical reaction and made this fantastic party.

SummerDaze is continuing during the summer and the next event is coming soon. DJ “HITO” from Japan will join the party on 4th June at sunnyside pavillion, so I can’t wait the spend the next great time.

5月15日、今年で5周年を迎えるSummerDizeのシーズンが始まった。毎年屋内外に関わらず様々な会場で行われるSummerDize。大きすぎず、プライベートすぎない規模感で心地よいクラブミュージックを楽しむことができる。

会場となったスチームホイッスルはトロントの人々から長く愛されるクラフトビール工場。工場内に併設するイベントスペースは木材の温かみと窓から入る自然光で解放感のある空間ができていた。フードやアクセサリーの販売ブースではトロントで活動しているアーティストにフォーカスしていたようだ。

この日偶然にもNBA(National Basketball Association)チーム・トロントラプターズの試合が重なっていた。DJブースの後ろに試合観戦用のスクリーンが設置され、エレクトロな音楽を聴きながら地ビールを片手に踊り、地元チームの勝利に歓声をあげた。地元を愛するトロントニアンらしさが溢れていた。

ロコ感満載かと思えば、DJブースやアクセサリーの販売スペースはアジアンリゾート風でバリを連想させるようなデザインだ。さらに折り紙の体験スペースも設置されており、ローカルとオリエンタルが共存していた。また、会場に集まった人々の多くがストリートスタイルでありながら上品さも兼ねそろえ、感度の高さを感じた。一見,相反するかのような要素によって起こる化学反応がこのパーティーの魅力を後押ししているようだ。
