C2 Illumination Night: join us for the party of the year!

By May 8, 2017 No Comments

Every year, C2 illumination party is called the party of the year. Since C2’s inception, the closing parties have been the stuff of legend (remember Moby? Valaire with Oliver Jones? DJ Windows 98, a.k.a., Arcade Fire’s Win Butler?), and this year they aim to keep the winning streak alive.

On Friday evening, May 26, once the final keynote conference is over at 6:30 pm, Illumination Night festivities will take place throughout the entire C2 village. Live music, dancing, interactive art, tasty treats, the most beautiful pop-up terrasse in Montréal and a few C2-style surprises will unfold both inside and out, taking full advantage of the site’s singular ambiance – it’ll be Arsenal as you’ve never seen it before.
