"Since its creation in 2007, the Igloofest site has evolved to enhance the experience of its visitors and to meet the growth of the event. This time it's different. We wanted to mark the occasion, the entire site will be up for rediscovery,” revealed Nicolas Cournoyer, general director of the event.
Then there’s the music. Each of Igloofest’s 12 nights promises to be a memorable one with local and international DJ and VJ talents coming together to deliver one hell of a party.
The festival opens "with a DJ set by Ninja Tune's legendary breakbeat and downtempo fusionist, Bonobo (Jan 14), who returns to the city that has historically been so enthralled with his musical tastes."
"The big hitters keep coming as the weekends unfold, with strong headline sets coming in from nightlife favourites The Martinez Brothers (Jan 21), Sébastien Léger (Jan 30), Michael Mayer (Feb 5), and Tale of Us (Feb 5). Percolating up from the global underground this year are the likes of French producer Rone (Jan 22), New York DJ Gina Turner (Jan 30), French-touch revisionists Brodinski (Feb 6) and UK bass progenitor Swindle (Feb 6)."
