Every January and February Jacques-Cartier pier in Montreal Old Port turns into an electro music capital thanks to one beloved winter tradition here in Quebec. Igloofest is a unique open-air festival that includes music, dancing, contests and actual igloos. The celebration lasts for over three weeks and gathers around 10,000 participants every year. Events take place typically on Thursdays between 7:30 pm and 11 pm, and on Fridays & Saturdays between 7:30 pm and 12:30 am.
Igloofest has always boasted impressive lineups. Some of the hottest headliners who broke the ice at the latest editions were Flume, Porter Robinson, Tiesto, Bonobo, Claptone, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Jacques Greene, CRi, Lou Phelps, Misstress Barbara, Rüfüs Du Sol, Nina Kraviz, Kaytranada, and dozens more.
Don't miss the registration for a “One-Piece Contest,” where judges will decide whose skiing costume looks more fun. They help to stay warm all night long and bring more colors to the crowd. Alternatively, take part in other snow competitions or visit the Nordic village with a temporary interactive dwelling.
You can buy your Igloofest tickets on the event's official website, mentioned in the External Resources below. Igloopasses start at $200, but note that these merely evaporate, so hurry up to catch the best offer.
