‘îLESONIQ is curated to give every fan of electronic music their own playground to enjoy and explore”, explains Evelyne Côté, Director of Programming, Concerts & Events at evenko and co-founder of the festival. ”Expect the best electronic dance music experience with a range of world class acts, as well as emerging ground-breaking producers & DJs. Every day at the festival features something for every type of mood and style, from bass to techno, deep house to EDM, and hip hop to trance”.
Furthermore, the îLESONIQ production team analyzed how sound travels on site and will be reconfiguring equipment, adding sound towers, speakers and subwoofers, as well as implementing surround sound in 2022. More than double the speakers and subwoofers will be added to the Bell Oasis stage and field; brand-new sound towers will be added to the Mirage stage environment; and surround sound will be implemented to the Coca-Cola NEON stage dancefloor; ensuring that fans get the best festival experience all weekend long!
