Ah, Montreal. If you've ever visited the city, then you know it's basically one of Quebec's most fun spots to visit. It's romantic, it's got history, it's got culture, and the people? Well, the people love to party. Just take the craziness that is Igloofest, for example. Whether snow or sleet, every year thousands of people dress up and gather to celebrate the city’s sub-zero music festival.
Not only is it the coldest music festival in the world (just embrace your Northern side and bundle up!), Igloofest is pretty much the highlight of Montreal winters — and with good reason. From the epic lineup of local and international DJs and always-playful Igloovillage to the gram-worthy, icy décor and light shows, it’s an event you’re definitely going to want to mark on your calendars ASAP. You'll be thanking yourself once you put on your coziest (or wildest) onesie, unleash your inner child, and let loose like never before.
Here’s the scoop: for its fourteenth edition, Igloofest takes place Thursday to Saturday from January 16 to February 8 at Jacques Cartier Quay in Montreal's majestic Old Port. That’s a total of four weekends and 12 nights that you've got the opportunity to visit and turn what could be a lacklustre winter into one seriously fun event!
Oh yeah, and get ready to up your fashion game because there’s also a tacky snowsuit contest! But seriously, when else can you rock a head-to-toe animal suit with a hot toddy in-hand? It literally doesn't get any more Canadian (and fun!) than this.
This year, dozens of renowned DJs will be taking over the Sapporo and Videotron stages, including the likes of Kaytranada, Zeds Ded, RÜFÜS DU SOL, The Blaze, Charlotte de Witte and so many more! Plus, super talented VJs will be present as well, like VJ BUNBUN and VJ Kitana. You're guaranteed to have the time of your life with your entire gang!
Just think: you plus your crew sporting the sickest winter gear all while jamming out to even sicker beats. Let’s not forget the delish food (and drink) selections, too! We’re not kidding when we say Igloofest is where the best of winter happens. And, even better?
