Montréal is no stranger to icy Canadian winters, but that doesn’t stop the local troops from getting down in the snow. Returning for the 13th edition of the winter event series, Igloofest has announced their annual three-weekend takeover at the city’s Old Port, welcoming all as they embark on nine evenings of frosty festivities.
As the outdoor festival officially commences Jan 17 and comes to a close Feb 2, attendees have the ticketing capabilities to frequent one, or all nights of the multi-weekend frenzy. With previous years of success establishing Igloofest as one of the most prominent electronic events in Montréal, the 2019 edition continues to impress with a large-scale list of headliners, including the likes of Diplo, Above & Beyond, and Maceo Plex as notable billings for each respective weekend. Alongside the aforementioned acts, Igloofest boasts nights that bring out a double-dose of headliners such as longstanding techno masterminds Chris Liebing and Mind Against, and heavyweight trap heads RL Grime and Baauer over the course of two nights.
While some may shy away from the idea of an outdoor winter dance party, previous years have seen as many as 120,000 bundled-up attendees flock to the venue over a single season. Winter may not seem the preferred season for festivals, but Igloofest is here to disprove that narrow notion.
GA and VIP passes for Igloofest 2019 are available for purchase here.
The well-oiled, underground music brand out of Berlin, HYTE, has just announced it will be hosting its own stage in New York this year at one of the most anticipated events in New England: Electric Zoo. HYTE will be a part of the fest’s final day, Sept. 2, at the Sunday School Grove stage.
With the sublime New York City skyline as its visionary backdrop, the HYTE stage will tout an impeccable batch of techno-centric talent, including Dubfire in a B2B session with Chris Liebing, Pete Tong, and Gregor Tresher. Fit for the occasion, HYTE’s comprehensive configuration of international acts showcases both world-renowned warriors of their craft and clandestine club phenomenons alike.
HYTE is known for casting techno entrancements all over the globe, hosting stages in the US, Europe, and even Vietnam — corralling icons like Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, and Maceo Plex to perform under its masthead.
Made Event‘s titanic New York-based festival, Electric Zoo, is celebrating its tenth birthday this Labor Day Weekend, August 31st–September 2nd. To mark the momentous double-digit occasion, the wildlife-themed event has added two more headlining artists in Alesso and Tiësto to join the star-studded cast of talent that already tops the 2018 bill: Kaskade, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, and Virtual Self.
The circus that rolled into the grounds of the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino was not your usual Ringling Brothers spectacle. This one was more sinister, a haunting big top that unearthed the ominous threats that only occur during All Hallow’s Eve. Escape: Psycho Circus brought out a record-breaking 125,000 revelers to partake in
The Berlin-based global event brand HYTE continues to solidify its standing as a global entertainment powerhouse. After establishing a weekly residency at the world-renowned Amnesia in Ibiza, they’ve now announced a special stage takeover at this year’s second annual Epizode festival.
HYTE’s new editions round out the already amazing line up for Vietnam’s tranquil promising, which had previously included headliners such as Carl Cox, Dixon, Âme, Guti, Dubfire, and Luciano.
Surely, Epizode festival offers its attendees the opportunity for an immersive festival experience, but it’s brands like HYTE that help solidify curatorial attention to detail that will likely live on in the memories of techno and house aficionados alike for years to come.
Epizode takes place from December 31 to January 10, tickets are available here.
Following its inaugural edition in January 2017, Vietnam’s Epizode Festival has released its official aftermovie and first headliners for 2018. House and techno kingpins Dixon, Loco Dice, Chris Liebing and Luciano are among the four acts that have been revealed.
Inviting participants to each play a role in the main episode of party season, Epizode Festival is founded upon the ideals of full autonomy and creative expression. This year’s theme, “Equatorial Musical Adventure,” will be spread across 11 sun-soaked days at Vietnam’s pristine PhúQuốc.
