Igloofest 2020: The Coldest Festival in the World.

Do you think you can just enjoy summer in Canada? And the winter? How is it?

Igloofest is the proof that it is possible to enjoy a great festival in the middle of winter in Montreal – Quebec!
For its 14th edition, the world’s coolest electronic music festival is back with 4 weekends of incredibly diverse music, featuring the cream of the electronic music crop from near and far! From January 16th to February 8th, Montreal will dance to the sounds of THE BLAZE, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Nina Kraviz, Anjunabeats, REZZ, ZEDS DEAD, ANNA and Reinier Zonneveld, not to mention Charlotte De Witte, to name just a few highlights.On the first weekend January 16-18, big names like Anna, Reinier Zonneveld, Anjunabeats guests and more.

This year will also feature brand new programming: Thursdays are now dedicated to special “OFF IGLOO” events, whose first artists will be revealed very soon! Iconic names (we can waitttt)!
On the second weekend January 24 and 25, Rezz, Nina Kraviz and others will perform.
On the third weekend January 31 and February 1, Rufus Du Sol and special guests.
And to end this wonderful season, last weekend February 7 and 8, Zeds Dead, Charlotte of Witte and others will cheer up the crowd.

Up and coming artists that are shaking up the scene As usual, Igloofest’s programming is full of electronic up and comers shaping the sounds of tomorrow, and once again, the freshest styles will be on display: ItaloDisco courtesy of Germany’s Lauer (DE – January 16th), contemplative sounds by local hero Kora (QC – January 17th), the frenetic house of America’s Honey Soundsystem (US – January 18th), the imperial electronic sounds of French phenomenon Vladimir Cauchemar (FR – January 24th), and the elegant and ultra-danceable beats of Jeremy Olander (SE – January 25th). Plus, don’t forget VNSSA (US – February 7th, Dirty Bird vibes and more!), Chaos In The CBD (UK – February 8th), the Parisian jazz riffs of Bellaire (FR) and Montreal melodies of CRi (January 31st), and industrial techno by Sentimental Rave (FR – February 1st). There’s truly something for everyone, with sounds displaying the richness and diversity of today’s electronic music scene. Montreal’s underground foundation, at our side as always. Because Montreal wouldn’t be the same without them, Igloofest is proud to collaborate with the freshest local collectives year after year, presenting many of the festival’s hottest nights: Kizi Garden, Saisons, NVA, NEON, FRONT RITE, Turning Point, OCTOV, Midnight Jacuzzi and 00:AM are the 9 collectives who’ll share their world with us as part of 2020’s local programming.

A redesigned site to get you dancing! As is tradition, Igloofest has redesigned its site at Jacques-Cartier Pier to create a brand new, original experience. This year, the main stage configuration and design have been completely revamped to offer more space to festival-goers and to make room for new IGLOOVIP terraces. Maximum room to dance and play! At Igloofest, we know how to turn cold weather into a red hot party! Finally, in addition to music, Igloofest will offer a plethora of activities from gigantic games of skill at the festive Igloovillage, to crazy contests including the unforgettable Iglooswag costume competition, full of fun themes. Guests will also find a generous variety of food options, selected for the cold weather, to fill up on energy and treat themselves, all alongside our patented yetis. And of course, the heated pavilion will be open to all, for when the time comes to take off that Igloofest tuque… or to get a new one!

Tickets are being sold on the official website starting at $ 25 + tax. It is also possible to buy VIP tickets and the Igloo Pass which guarantees the entry of the whole season.
