Evenko, the people behind Osheaga and Heavy Montreal, bring us another music festival to add to the Montreal calendar. It is the second year for this fledgling festival. I, for one, wonder why it took so long for someone to start an outdoor electronic music festival in the city. Mutek happens in the spring indoors and is very popular so this seems like a no brainer. Ile Soniq is not limiting itself to EDM as there are also urban artists and dance artists/acts performing.
Despite the fact that it is only the second year for Ile Soniq it is big already. Big in regards to size and acts performing. First off it features the biggest stage available in North America and top notch production values. Second there are some very popular acts coming like Deadmau5, Kaskade, Die Antwoord, DJ Snake, Above & Beyond, Azealia Banks, and Kieza.
Sounds like the first Ile Soniq will not be the last!
