Each winter, going on 10 years this winter, Igloofest brings together thousands of electronic music fans to dance under the stars at Montreal’s Old Port. Bringing together icy decor and steel structures, powerful architectural projections, programs featuring the best local and international DJs, its giant playground and its one-of-a-kind winterwear competition named “Iglooswag”, Igloofest is one of the hottest events in the city, and one of the most cherished in Canada.
For its 10th edition, Igloofest returns for 4 weekends and a total of 12 freezing but oh so hot nights. This January 14-15-16 , 21-22-23, 29-30-31 as well as February 4-5-6 février 2016, it’s time to put your most kitsch winter gear and defy Quebec’s harshest season. See you there? We’re counting on it.
You might have to brave some freezing cold weather, but you’ll be too busy dancing to some of the world’s trendiest names in electronic music to notice too much. Igloofest takes place over four weekends at the Quai Jacques-Cartier in the middle of Montreal’s Old Port, and has been increasingly bringing out some major acts in the electronic world: over the years, they’ve booked Diplo, Flosstradamus, A-Trak, Green Velvet and Rusko – among many others. There are plenty of other activities to take part in outside the music like mini-curling, playing hockey in a sumo-wrestling suit, riding ice slides and roasting marshmallows near a fire.
