Every year Montreal throws a massive snow party called Igloofest. This winter festival-situated at the city’s Old Port-features DJs from around the world including Europe and the US.
As it was the opening weekend, a large group of us headed down on Friday night to see Canadian house DJ Mike Perras play live. The evening also featured DJ sets from American house DJ Matthew Dear and German Tech House duo Âme. All in all the music was pumping and the mood was pretty great.
There were several ice stands including Vodka bars and ice sculptures, and we took the opportunity to warm ourselves up by a centrally located fire-perfect for the sub-zero temperature outside.
Loaded full of wine, Jaeger and beer (almighty hangover the next day) I took the opportunity to chat with excited members of the crowd who were more than happy to feature on my Blog. People had travelled the world over, from Europe, The United States, North Africa and South America.
Igloofest will be running until February 8th 2014. I feel we may be paying this festival another visit very soon…
