Unveiling the 2018 edition's VJs
Igloofest is the rare event that makes it a point of pride to value the exceptional talent of its visual artists just as much as the skills of its musical guests. Its enormous stage design comes to life each night thanks to their countless original animated creations, offering a truly immersive experience where sound and light come together on the dance floor. Once again this year, Igloofest is proud to welcome these local creators whose talent often shines far beyond our borders. You'll get an eyeful thanks to the unbounded imagination of the following 23 artists: Baya, Binocle, Boycott, BunBun, Cafrine, Création Ex-Nihilo, Data Dada, Diagraf, Hugues Clément, LLL, Maxime Corbeil-Perron, Melesul3, Myriam Boucher, Okia, Oli Sorenson, O\\\, Push-1-Stop, Tetsouille, TiND, Video Girl, Vincent Raineri, VJ Homing et Yanneek.
