Ce n’est qu’un au revoir! To cap off Igloofest’s 2018 season, 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 amaze us with his amazing synth work and enchanting rhythms before Worakls will take us home 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 takes us home with his signature blend of high intensity techno.
