Igloofest is right around the corner! This year it happens to start Thursday, January 12th and lasts until Saturday, Feburary 4th. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday between those dates are filled with superb DJs! But, there are specific DJs you should definitely look out for in 2017 at Igloofest!
The list below composes of some of the most popular DJs performing at Igloofest and some local upcoming home favourites! So, be sure to pick and choose your dates wisely! Or hey, why not just go see them all!
Igloofest just announced their official lineup for the 2016 edition of the winter festival every single Montrealer is waiting for. In an effort to represent our Montreal Djs, MTL Blog decided to do a quick listing of the local Djs you need to see this year.
From Lunice to Ryan Playground, first timers to Igloofest experienced artists, we are here to make sure you go the right date and the right time for your ears' proper pleasures:
Photo cred - Ryan Playground
Ryan Playground is signed to local creative agency Saintwoods. She's been in and around the local scene for some time, recognized as a top DJ, producer and singer, Ryan Playground will have you dancing all night long to her beautiful mixes.
Black Tiger Sex Machine just got back from a Europe tour and are ready to take over North America for their 2016 BTSM Church Tour. With their extremely original tiger formed masks, the electro based trio is back for an Igloofest performance not to miss.
Shaydakiss is not just making noise here at her hometown, but is also solidifying her presence nation-wide in Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City and Vancouver. Topping that, she's played the hottest spots in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami alongside artists like Diplo, A-Trak, Chromeo, Skrillex, & more.
Now, Bambii is actually located right now in Toronto but for what's it worth, it will be her first Igloofest showcase and she is absolutely amazing. She opened for Machine Drum, Falcons, Mykki Blanco, LE1F and recently collaborated with Full Crate. She enjoys playing House, RNB, Jersey & Global Sounds. Bambii will also be dropping an EP in 2016!
We've all been waiting in eager anticipation for the lineup drop for the massive rave fest that is îleSoniq and it's finally here! The two-day EDM festival will take over Parc Jean-Dapeau this August 14 & 15 for its second edition and just based on the artists and DJ's set to perform this year, it's gonna be huge.
The crazy-ass lineup includes the world-class DJ hero Deadmau5 (!), the South-African bad-ass duo Die Antwoord (!!), and local electro mind-blowers Black Tiger Sex Machine (!!!).
Other notables include Azelea Banks, Flosstradamus and Showtek just to name a few, but all in all, you done good îleSoniq. You done real good.
