In the year 2007, Igloofest was launched by the geniuses behind already successful Montreal festival “Piknic Électronik” which caters to introducing and out-letting for incredible Electronic style DJs and big names, as well as thousands of EDM fans, not limited to Montreal, but also from all over the global map. Within Igloofest’s first year, it wasn’t long before thousands of fans began to catch on to it, and thus began spreading the word even more so. Fast forward to 2012, and they have already cultivated 70,000+ fans and admirers. Igloofest is presently one of the most successful and anticipated events that take place every winter in Montreal’s Old Port. Showtime is 6:30 pm-12:30 am.
Festival’s like Igloofest that make the idea of “Winter” a lot more bearable…even more enjoyable, for many. This event is the equivalent of a kid in a candy shop in terms of those who are huge fans of EDM (electronic dance music.) To those that are concerned about it taking place outdoors, once you’re grooving you won’t even feel the chill factor (that doesn’t necessarily mean show up in booty short and a sweater) but my advice for the ladies is to leave the heels at home. If you would like some serious inspiration and fun times to brag about then Igloofest is definitely for you.
And it’s finally that time again, friends!
For four weekends (that’s TWELVE amazing nights to be had) Igloofest will be dropping the base, and making heads bob on Thursday to Saturday, January 16-17-18, 23-24-25, 30-31 and February 1st, 6-7-8, 2014. Tell your friends, lovers, family members, and co-workers! Organizers have decided to give you a FOURTH weekend instead of the usual “three January weekend draw” (we sure don’t mind!)
Not only is Igloofest notorious for it’s “one piece” contest, it’s a triple threat consisting of good booze, great architecture (ice and steel decor), and even BETTER music and DJ talent. Every year organizers work hard to select on the finest in EDM entertainment to ensure that fans have a quality experience that they will want to keep reliving again, and again! DJ names like Miss Kitten, Eskmo, Modeselektor, and Drop the Lime have been featured in previous years.
So come on out this January/February and enjoy the musical journey! For more information you can check out the official website. Tickets are available to purchase now.
