It’s that time of the year again. Suit-up, head out, and embrace Montréal’s sub-zero nightlife! On January 16-17-18, 23-24-25, 30-31, as well as February 1st and 6-7-8, IGLOOFEST returns for its 8th edition—more lights, more dance space and oh yes, more bone-chilling beats. Here’s a roundup of what to look out for this year.

Festival organizers have outdone themselves yet again, booking an impressive mix of local and international talent. This year’s DJ line-up boasts big names like Mistress Barbara, Maus, Pete Tong, Hot Since 82, and to end it all off with a bang, power couple Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg. Check out this year’s jam-packed line-up in our “Events” section. They’ll be heating up the dance floor from 6 p.m. t’ill midnight every night.

IGLOOFEST is now bigger and better, offering three new things that’ll guarantee a good time—a second stage for local DJs, a reinvented Sapporo igloo and the grand opening of its very own Iglooboutique. The all-new stage means three times more dancing space, more visuals and all-around better site dynamics. As for the Sapporo igloo, it’ll now be home to the famous “one-piece” contest studio booth. Wear your flashiest, most outrageous one-piece because this year’s first prize is hotter than ever—an all-inclusive trip for two down South! You can now purchase your IGLOOFEST accessories and tickets at the Iglooboutique, located at 4523, Rue St Denis (the new, official central ticket office). Tickets can also be purchased on-site during event nights (NOT recommended), online via Ticket Pro or La Vitrine or at one of the following locations: Atom Heart, Off The Hook Boutique, Moog Audio and Auberge Jeunesse Hi-Montréal.

Not a fan of the cold? Well, we have some goods new for you. The indoor resting area will also be much larger, as the studio booth and boutique have been re-located. With the addition of more indoor space, nothing will stop you from shaking off the winter weather in comfort after you’ve enjoyed a beer or a few Jäger bombs in the outdoors. What more can one ask for? A unique winter experience à la Montréal!
