Dave Clarke, Green Velvet, Louisahhh, Shiba San and Snails are on for Igloofest's last 3 regular nights of 2017

February 1, 2017

There's only three nights left of regular programming for Igloofest 2017, which means you've only got three more opportunities to come dance and revel in an incredibly unique, breathtaking setting. Next week, a large part of the current site will be transformed into an arena for the Nordik Games and other special activities as part of Montreal's 375th anniversary celebrations. And as for dancing, you know that we don't turn down when it comes to grand finales! So lace up your boots and grab your hats, because the fun starts again on Thursday night! Here's what's going on for Igloofest's 4th weekend:

Thursday February 2nd
This night is for the bass lovers thanks to Kannibalen, who'll take control of the Sapporo stage to present a night of local luminaries who know how to make the crowds move with intense low end! Heading up the night, Snails (QC) will push our gear to the limit thanks to his dubstep tinged EDM. He'll be preceded by Apashe (CA)'s new school techno and the shocking low-frequencies of Dabin (CA). At the Videotron stage, we'll experience a whole other world of bass when Sinjin Hawke (CA) and Zora Jones (AT) go back to back all night long, delivering the finest of futuristic styles.

Friday February 3rd
A night where timeless anthems will combine with new sounds, as the legendary Green Velvet (US) arrives directly from Chicago to carry us away with his jackin' rhythms at the Sapporo stage. And that's not all! France's Shiba San (FR) will already have lit up the place with an incredible selection that will explore house's rich and varied textures, and Softcoresoft (QC) will have launched our dream ball with her patented underground tech-house. At the Videotron stage, J'vlyn d'Ark (QC) will deftly blend an inspiring mix of house and techno while Mimetic (CH) will take us to techno's extremes.

Saturday February 4th
For Igloofest 2017's regular program grand finale, the Sapporo Stage will offer a packed night of incredible techno music, with the "Baron of techno" Dave Clarke (GB) who'll deliver one of his mind-blowing tour de force exploring the entirety of the dance music universe. He'll take command after Louisahhh (US), whose boundless energy conquered the hearts of the Piknic Électronik faithful last summer, and the fascinating grooves of Motions (QC). At the Videotron stage, local artist Seychelle (QC) will open the proceedings before the funky house styles of London's Moxie (GB) (an incredible discovery!) bring things to a lovely close.

Program for Thursday February 2nd with Snails (QC)
Program for Friday February 3rd with Green Velvet (US) and Shiba San (FR)
Program for Saturday February 4th with Dave Clarke (GB), Louisahhh (US) and Moxie (GB)

Iglooswag Theme: Jungle
We always choose a sweltering theme for our closing weekend and this time, we've gone fully tropical with JUNGLE. Now's the time to bring out your inner spirit animal or explore the universe of Tarzan, Mowgli and all of your other favourite adventure movies. And remember, there's nothing too extravagant for the Iglooswag contest, especially since the grand prize is a trip for two to Iceland. For all prizes and contest details, click here.

One, two or three nights? The choice is yours!
There are tickets available for our last 3 beautiful nights of the regular season, and you can always buy tickets at the site entrance the night of. If you've already made your choice, all of our options (single or group entry, regular and VIP) are available online at the Igloofest box office and at the Iglooboutique (where you can also grab your fancy Igloofest tuque).

Coming next week: the party continues with the Nordik Games!
Our regular program finishes Saturday, but Igloofest will be back next week with the wacky competitions of the Nordik Games, which go down Saturdays 11th and 18th of February. Plus, there's still time to sign up your team to participate in these amazing games, with events celebrating winter in our fair city! (Think "Put up your car shelter" and "Dig out your car"...). Whether you want to join as a family, long time friends or with your buddies from work, every type of team is welcome. Gather your team and register now right here.
