General FAQ

  • What is the format of the 2022 edition?

    Our goal is to hold a full general admission Igloofest. However, the final format will be subject to the evolution of the health situation and the COVID-19 rules in effect in Quebec between January 13 and February 5, 2022. Events remain subject to postponement or cancellation (with refund) depending on the capacity authorized on our site by public health.

  • After the cancellation of the OFF-Piknic in the fall, are you sure you can hold Igloofest in January?

    We hope to be able to present events in a normal configuration and we are working closely with Quebec Public Health.

  • Vaccination passport info

    Since September 1st, the vaccination passport is required by the Public Health to access our events. The vaccination passport certifies that a person 13 years of age or older is adequately protected against COVID-19. 

    When you arrive at the Piknic site, you'll need to provide proof of vaccination containing a QR code in one of the following three forms:

    - Paper format;
    - PDF format on your mobile device;
    - Proof on the VaxiCode application.
  • How do I retrieve my vaccination passport?

    All information regarding the operation and retrieval of your vaccination passport in all its forms can be found here:
  • What's Igloofest?

    Each winter, Igloofest unites thousands of electronic music fans to dance under the stars at Montreal’s Old Port. With its glacial décor and the location’s steel structures, its striking architectural stage design, its programming drawing from the best local and international DJs, and its Igloo village and “Iglooswag” snowsuit costume contest, Igloofest is one of Montreal’s coolest events and one of Canada’s most notable. In short, Montreal’s the place to be in January and February. #Fomo
