February 24, 2014 — Legions of dance devotees donning their brightest whites. Electronic music throbbing all night long. The biggest names on the world DJ circuit. That, everyone, is Montréal's White Party Week from April 17 to 21.
The massive music happening hits its peak with the gigantic Bal en Blanc (White Ball). Even by Montréal standards, the Bal draws an impressive crowd of over 15,000 white-clad and happy techno lovers to downtown's Palais des congrès. They hit the dance floor the eve of Sunday, April 20, and shake their bodies until the music shuts down at 10 a.m. the next day.
This Easter Weekend party of all parties has consistently attracted the hottest DJs from around the globe. To celebrate the Bal's 20th edition, impressive headliners include Hardwell, currently number one of DJ Mag's Top 100, the legendary Carl Cox, "Queen of techno" Nicole Moudaber and plenty of other reigning deities of the turntables.
The White Party Week is also packed with other activities for those interested in exploring the new urban culture. Along with music, the line-up includes fashion, dance, design and lots of other excitement. Bring an open mind and a willingness to embrace diversity, and you're in for a week to remember.
