A who’s who of electronic music
For their post-pandemic return, Igloofest is pulling out all of the stops with an all-star roster of electronic music superstars headlined by the almighty Tiësto. Montréal’s chillest festival crowd is sure to eat up the likes of Black Tiger Sex Machine and Apashe (both on Saturday, February 4), while the special Anjunadeep label showcase on Saturday, February 11 brings Ben Böhmer, hometown heroes CRi, Yotto, Eli & Fur and Olan to the Igloofest stage. Other highly-anticipated artists include Australia-based Flume, the UK’s Camelphat, France’s Kavinsky, and Switzerland’s Nora En Pure. Expanding the Igloofest palette, the 2023 edition includes DJ sets from bands WhoMadeWho and Bob Moses, and a mainstage set from rapper Hamza. And as always, Igloofest’s cutting-edge programming guarantees you’re bound to discover your new favourites while prepping for the headliners. Tickets and further lineup information are available now at Igloofest’s website.
Coming together in the winter
While Burning Man attendees bake in the desert heat, Igloofest brings the crowds together for an illuminating experience that, on more than one level, is the ultimate in chill. And Igloofest’s installations like the playful Igloovillage, eye-popping visuals and epic stages leave just as much of an impression as the music. We’re particularly fond of the annual tacky snowsuit contest—there’s some unforgettable monstrosities in Igloofest fans’ closets indeed, and where else could you win big for looking your worst?
The start of 2023’s festival season
Montréal is a city of festivals, with an internationally renowned annual calendar of unmissable events encompassing music, performance, film and comedy. And 2023 kicks off in fittingly grand style with Igloofest, a sign of better things to come throughout the year. From the world-famous Just for Laughs comedy festival and the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal to the cutting edge Pop Montréal International Music Festival and image+nation festival film LGBTQueer Montréal, there’s something for everyone!
