Winter may have arrived, but we here in Montreal know exactly how to cope with the cold! Grab your tuque and your gloves for the 7th edition of Igloofest 2013. Because of it’s ever growing popularity, this year they’ve added a whole new weekend giving you 12 days of awesome electronic music, new faces, the “one-piece” contest and most importantly, a fun way to stay out of the cold!
Also, the second VIRGIN MOBILE Igloo stage, devoted only to Montreal talent, will be on for a third year . Come discover and let loose to 40 local artists: our local DJs and producers who make up the backbone of this city’s music scene. Not to mention that being in an igloo, this is the warmest spot!

Also for all you hungry festival goers, what better way to get ready for a night of dancing and drinks than with a tasty meal. Look for the Happening Gourmand which will have deals that include an Igloofest ticket and a meal at a fixed price in 8 Old Montreal restaurant,s from January 10th to February 3rd.
So how do you take advantage of this awesome event? Well this year they have added the Iglooweekends. This is a weekend past at the cost of 40$ giving access to all 3 days. If you’re just passing through or just have the time for one night out, then tickets are 15$ online or 20$ at the door. However for all you hardcore dancers out there, the Igloopass for 120$ is definitely for y’all! So get your tickets or passes today and don’t wait. Last year’s Igloofest was almost sold out every night so don’t get caught out of the action.
Hope to see you there!
