Iconic
names and amazing performances

Living
up to their unshakeable reputations, this year’s headliners will have Jacques
Cartier pier moving and grooving, each with their own unique styles. On Thursday
January 16th
, the hooky melodies of French duo THE BLAZE
(DJ set, FR) will officially launch Igloofest 2020. Then, legendary trance
label Anjunabeats will have festivalgoers smiling and dancing on Friday
January 17th, with a line up to be unveiled in just a few days.
Finally, to close this first weekend with gusto, ANNA (BR) and Reinier
Zonneveld
(live, NL) will then deliver majestic techno epics, served hot on
Saturday.

Weekend
#2 will features sounds just as hot and spicy. Hyper-energetic Canadian REZZ
(CA) will raise the roof on Friday the 24th, with the
young i_o (CA), newly signed to the mau5trap label, on board as well.
The very next night meanwhile, will be dedicated to the stars of techno, with
the highly anticipated Nina Kraviz (RU) returning 7 years after her
Igloofest debut, and rock solid Detroit institution Robert Hood (US)
delivering his classic sound.

Our
third weekend will be just as jam packed, as trio RÜFÜS DU SOL (AU) step
up on Friday January 31st with a highly anticipated selection
and a world class DJ set! But save some energy, as we’ll be announcing some
very special guests for Saturday February 1st. Trust us, and expect
to see a crowd of thousands throwing their hands in the air!

We
like to finish things in fine style, and the proof is in our 4th and
final Igloofest weekend: Friday February 7th, Canadians ZEDS
DEAD
(CA) will bring the noise to the Sapporo stage, and the next evening, Charlotte
de Witte
(BE), now a global dance floor staple, will deliver the final
moments of this 14th edition. Get ready for action! 

Up
and coming artists that are shaking up the scene

As
usual, Igloofest’s programming is full of electronic up and comers shaping the
sounds of tomorrow, and once again, the freshest styles will be on display:
Italo-Disco courtesy of Germany’s Lauer (DE – January 16th),
contemplative sounds by local hero Kora (QC – January 17th),
the frenetic house of America’s Honey Soundsystem (US – January 18th),
the imperial electronic sounds of French phenomenon Vladimir Cauchemar (FR
January 24th), and the elegant and ultra-danceable beats of
Jeremy Olander (SE – January 25th). Plus, don’t forget
VNSSA (US – February 7th, Dirty Bird vibes and more!),
Chaos In The CBD (UK – February 8th), the Parisian
jazz riffs of Bellaire (FR) and Montreal melodies of CRi (January
31st
), and industrial techno by Sentimental Rave (FR – February
1st
). There’s truly something for everyone, with sounds
displaying the richness and diversity of today’s electronic music scene.

Montreal’s
underground foundation, at our side as always.

Because Montreal wouldn’t be the same without them, Igloofest is proud to collaborate with the freshest local collectives year after year, presenting many of the festival’s hottest nights: Kizi Garden, Saisons, NVA, NEON, FRONT RITE, Turning Point, OCTOV, Midnight Jacuzzi and 00:AM are the 9 collectives who’ll share their world with us as part of 2020’s local programming.

A
redesigned site to get you dancing!

As
is tradition, Igloofest has redesigned its site at Jacques-Cartier Pier to
create a brand new, original experience. This year, the main stage
configuration and design have been completely revamped to offer more space to
festival-goers and to make room for new IGLOOVIP terraces. Maximum room to
dance and play! At Igloofest, we know how to turn cold weather into a red hot
party!

Finally,
in addition to music, Igloofest will offer a plethora of activities from
gigantic games of skill at the festive Igloovillage, to crazy contests
including the unforgettable Iglooswag costume competition, full of fun
themes. Guests will also find a generous variety of food options, selected for
the cold weather, to fill up on energy and treat themselves, all alongside our
patented yetis. And of course, the heated pavilion will be open to all, for
when the time comes to take off that Igloofest tuque… or to get a new one!
