A new edition of igloofest awaits January 2012

Soon the  polar bears will be dancing again, because it is almost igloofest time. In another post about piknic electronik, the concept of an open area rave might have already got your attention and interest, but wait for the winter edition of piknic electronik. Igloofest 2012 will be another rave event where people have no choice but to dance, otherwise they would freeze their toes off. Not that it is easy to resist to dance anyway, with the first edition having a broad variety of dubstep, techno and breakbeats. A combination of warm sounds that keep your feet shuffling!

On January the 12th, legend Mala from the Digital Mystikz crew, Cosmo and Montreal local A-Trak will be playing at Jacques-Cartier Quay in the Old-Port of Montreal to start-up the festival that runs for nine weeks. You get in for 12$ a night, or purchase a all-in-one ticket for 60$ plus tax and service fees. If you are not yet sure about the event, check the recap video from last years(2011) edition:

So get your winter jackets and boots ready, buy some of them leggings to put under your trowsers and be ready to shake your hips. After putting on some weight from Christmas and New Years Eve there is nothing better to do than to dance it away before the spring season starts. And if you really want to get it going, there will be another one-piece suit event held, where the best one-piece ski suit wins a price.
