As citizens of Montreal, we have a large host of festivals to keep up entertained all year round. One of the coolest festivals that Montreal puts on is Igloofest. Igloofest is an EDM festival which spans four weekends in the new year. The catch? Igloofest happens outside in Montreal’s Old Port meaning there is a beautiful but frozen landscape for the fest.

Igloofest organizers always seem to convince some pretty amazing DJs to perform in the freezing cold winter of Montreal. Luckily, 2015 Igloofest will not disappoint you. The Igloofest schedule is available here and the festival will run on Friday, Saturday and Sundays from January 16th until February 8th. The lineup is very diverse and represents not only many international artists but there is also a variety of style between artists.

I have a few artists which I am very excited to see, and the first one plays on the first night – Gui Boratto. This guy is very talented and is used to keeping up with the afterhours crowd, so I am sure his set at Igloofest will be read.

Of the whole festival, I am most excited to see Oliver Heldens. He is an up and coming artist and is rumored to be starting a new trend in EDM music. He performs on January 25th.

Other groups I am looking forward to include Blond:ish on Janurary 30th, and Dubfire on February 6th.

Every weekend of the festival looks like it will be very enjoyable and with plenty of time to get tickets and one of the fetch Igloofest toques there is really no excuse not to check out Igloofest. I definitely think it is a festival that all Montrealers should experience once.
