In an Instagram story on December 30, following François Legault's 5 p.m. press conference, Igloofest announced that the event usually held in the Old Port of Montreal will not be able to receive festivalgoers this winter due to new health measures.
Organizers issued a message in English and French to explain the situation to ticket holders:
"We have once again been listening to the government and Santé Public's announcements and, like you all, we are in shock. We have unfortunately come to the conclusion that, under these circumstances, we will not be able to hold Igloofest Montreal.
"We need the next few days to organize and will be contacting ticket holders as soon as possible."
So if you purchased a ticket, you should be expecting to hear from the company shortly.
The big return of the festivities had been announced via social networks on October 27, 2021, and it was to be the fifteenth anniversary of Igloofest. A few days later, on November 4, the program was announced, and the headliners included renowned artists from the electronic scene such as Diplo, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Bonobo, Dillon Francis and more.
In December 2021, Igloofest announced that it would be holding its first-ever edition in Québec City in March 2022. So far, Igloofest's website only specifies that the Montreal edition has been cancelled.
According to the new restrictions announced on December 30, public outdoor events are still allowed, but can only accommodate a maximum of 250 fully vaccinated people.
UPDATE: The Government of Quebec has introduced new COVID-19 health measures since this article was published. Please review guidelines and double-check the website and social media pages of the event or activity before you head out. We strongly recommend calling before you go.
Why You Should Go: Indoor gatherings are limited to six people right now, so call your besties up and plan a little shindig at one of your apartments. No better way to start the New Year than with your closest people.
Address: 463, rue Sainte-Catherine O., Montreal, QC
Why you should go: Three similar interactive works, titled Les Diamants, will spend the holiday season on the front lawn of St. James United Church. You spin them around to enjoy a little light and sound show.
