  • 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
