January 30, 2018

There's only three nights left to dance at Igloofest and experience a festive atmosphere that you won't find anywhere else on Earth. No two nights are the same and this weekend's program will once again showcase the electronic music universe's infinite possibilities. To celebrate this final edition, artists from Canada, the UK and France will play alongside some of our most talented local lights. Here's an overview of the stunning musical menu that will close the festivities, as well as the Iglooswag costume contest's final theme.

Thursday, February 1st
In collaboration with CISM 89,3
Weekend #3 will see Bass Music royalty at the Sapporo Stage for our second 16+ edition of the season, as Montreal institution Kannibalen Records delivers some of the heaviest drops and craziest rhythms you've ever heard! It all starts with Karluv Klub's low-end frequencies before Dabin and Apashe keep the energy levels off the charts with their electro bass madness. Finally, Black Tiger Sex Machine will return to Igloofest to the joy of their adoring fans, shaking the Old Port from top to bottom!
Meanwhile, the Videotron Stage will host some of Hip Hop's absolute finest. Local favourite Fafa Khan will start the fun, before The Posterz' Nate Husser delivers a high impact DJ set. Next, you'll be thrilled by the Dead Obies' VNCE Carter and his subterranean beats, and Lou Phelps will set the stage for OVO Sound's Boi-1da, whose deep bass has made him a favourite of Drake, Rihanna and many more. Finally, straight out of Atlanta, DJ Esco will demonstrate how to keep it trap and prove once and for all that he's "the coolest DJ in the world."

Friday, February 2nd
House & Techno lovers, your time is now! First, Tone Depth will open up the proceedings at the Sapporo stage, delivering heady grooves and jackin' beats to get you moving. Then, the legendary Sasha & John Digweed will go back to back for an incredible 3 hour set, marking their first appearance together in Montreal in 10 years! This is going to be a DJ master class you won't want to miss, as you can be certain these grandmasters will be in rare form.
Meanwhile, the Videotron stage will see a trio of live sets, showcasing an altogether different way of performing electronic music. dB will start the show, before Cassandra Daiva steps up with her innovative textures and beats. Finally, Pulses will close out the night with a trippy, futuristic vibe. Get ready for next level music!

Saturday February 3rd
Delayed due to inclement weather, the FREE Off-Igloofest day will take place this Saturday with the same exceptional program, from 2PM to 7PM. For this special event open to families and future festival-goers of all ages wishing to discover Igloofest's magic, we're opening the site and even the backstage area for sight seeing. Everyone can explore, join in the Igloovillage's activities, get some food in the dining area, and especially, dance to the music of Tupi Collective, Tizi and Poirier. It's the spark that will light that night's big closing party!

Saturday evening, for Igloofest 2018's Grand Finale, we're pulling out all of the stops at the Sapporo stage, delivering a France-focused line up full of good energy and funky beats courtesy of Hungry Music. First however, the fun starts with Montreal's own BSLC, who'll open up the proceedings ahead of Joachim Pastor's pitch shifted vocals and pop energy. Then, the one and only N'To will dazzle us with his amazing synth work and enchanting rhythms before Worakls takes us to the top with his sophisticated mix of bumping house. You'll want to party to the very last beat!
The Videotron stage will kick off the night with the underground sounds of juSt b, keeping things dark and groovy. Jaclyn Kendall will then keep the underground vibes going, before Mike Laz leads the final ride with his signature blend of high intensity techno.

Iglooswag Contest: Sugar Shack
To cap off Iglooswag with a little taste of our roots, we're inviting people to draw from a typically Québécois theme: the sugar shack. Think lumberjacks and all other woodsy get ups, and you could participate in the competition's final weekend. To learn more about the prizes on offer, visit the Igloofest site, and social media.

Only three nights left! Find the one you like and come dance with us. Because winter without Igloofest, just isn't winter.
