We like to hate on Montreal quite a bit, but we can’t deny that once in a while, they host some pretty awesome events. Since the warm weather is (please god) just around the corner, and there sadly won’t be any more Leaf hockey left to boo, it’s time to hit the open road for some good times with your friends, and yes, Montreal is the destination.

Back for its second edition, Digital Spring celebrates digital creativity in all its forms. The first edition saw over 100,000 visitors with 82 different events and activities to choose from, and this year is even bigger with over 150 events planned, happening all over the city.

2015 is the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technology as proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly, so Digital Spring is featuring a variety of interactive spaces with numerous visual and sound performances, immersive 3D experiences, cutting-edge EDM, as well as world-class vernissages, exclusive studio visits, and art conferences, all focused around the phenomenon of light. Epic art, 3D, and light-shows ftw!

Digital Spring runs from March 21 - June 21, 2015
