CRi, JACQUES GREENE, LOU PHELPS AND MISSTRESS BARBARA
This year Igloofest invites festival-goers to celebrate at home, whether in their backyard, living room or balcony, every Saturday from February 13 to March 13 on Facebook, Twitch and YouTube in the company of the best of the local electronic scene.
ONLINE FROM FEBRUARY 13 TO MARCH 13
The best of the local scene invites itself home
In 2021, Igloofest adapts and maintains its title as the coldest festival in the world. Until they can return to the Jacques Cartier pier, Igloofest invites itself into the first-hour igloosapiens lounge for 5 special evenings, including a surprise, broadcast free of charge on digital platforms from unusual places in Montreal. So on February 13, the euphoric notes of Cry will open the festival with his collaborators Jesse Mac Cormack and Sophia Bel for a first evening on the site of LaRonde. The following week, February 20, it will be the turn of the prolific Jacques Greene to perform, for the occasion, at the Old Port of Montreal. Lou Phelps, a young rapper produced by Kaytranada, among others, will perform from the Stewart Museum on February 27. And, finally, on March 6, the queen of Montreal nights, Misstress Barbara, will be on the roof of Videotron’s headquarters for an evening with more techno sounds than ever before. Finally on March 13, the Société des Arts Technologiques will host Igloofest for a music marathon from noon to midnight with a dozen artists taking turns at the turntables. The full line-up of this event will be announced shortly.
True to its festive reputation, Igloofest will feature weekly capsules and a mini-documentary that will be broadcast online and will allow its winter warriors to relive the strong emotions of the world’s coldest festival, waiting to be able to meet together in 2022 for the 15th anniversary celebrations.
