Top of page Description
Each winter, Igloofest brings together thousands of fans of electronic music to dance under the stars at Montreal’s Old Port. Bringing together icy decor and steel structures, powerful architectural projections, programs featuring the best local and international DJs, the igloo village and its one-of-a-kind winterwear competition renamed "Iglooswag", Igloofest is one of the hottest events in the city, and one of the most cherished in Canada. All told, it’s where Montreal spends its January and February. #fomo
