Not to be mistaken for Newfoundland’s actual Iceberg Festival, Beachclub’s Iceberg Music Festival substitutes wandering chunks of ice for globe-trotting international DJs. The festival started two years ago but skipped last year due to internal restructuring. As such, it is bound to come back with even more of an impressive display this time. February 20th and 21st will see Point-Calumet invaded by thousands as the beach club is taken over by this massive winter music festival. We wonder if it was their strategy to have their festival somewhere between the end of Igloofest and Bal-en-Blanc?
The festival will include live music including the headlining DJ BL3ND with his deep electro verging on dubstep. It will also include winter activities including a 10-rink ice hockey tournament on their lake, assuming our strange weather doesn’t melt it all. If it doesn’t, the top 3 teams will walk away with a total of $5,000. So start planning your team because registration is coming up. With the previous year as an example, we should expect a flurry of other activities such as taffy on snow (or as we Montreal bilinguals affectionally call it: tire), free skating, and snow games.
Olivier Primeau, the current co-owner of Beachclub, pointed out on his Facebook account that there is no better way to celebrate winter in Quebec than with electronic music and outdoor hockey. That’s questionable when you realize that bacon poutine exists, but hey, who are we to argue with a good thing? More information will surely follow and we look forward to dancing our weekend away. You too can get it for the LOLO price of $20 a day or $30 for the weekend. To find out how to score tickets, click here.
