Electronic music thrives in this city. There are several festivals that deal exclusively with that genre of music and they all are very popular. Just because it is winter and there is snow on the ground does not mean you cannot be outside and dance under the stars to great electronic music.
For the 10th year Igloofest will provide fans of giant parties, the outdoors and electronic music a place to meet. At the Jacques Cartier Pier of the Old Port of Montreal some of the best electronic music DJs from near and far will provide the musical backdrop for four weekends during the heart of winter. On the two stages, Sapporo Stage and Videotron Mobile Stage, over the four weekends acts will include Bonobo (United Kingdom), Misstress Barbara (Quebec), The Martinez Brothers (United States), Shaydakiss (Quebec), Carl Craig (United States), Modeselektor (Germany), Tale of Us (Italy), and DJ Mini (Quebec). Attend and you will get your fill of bass, house, funk, techno, and even afro-soca.
Igloofest is all about fun and that is why beside the music and architectural projections there is also a very fun one-of-a-kind winterwear competition. It is called Iglooswag and features a fashion show of attendees who think they are wearing the most outrageous winterwear. For everyone each weekend will have dress themes – weekend one – Fur Madness, weekend two – Igloobling, weekend three – Retro Neon, and weekend four – Beach Party. Fun for everyone!
