WARM UP AND GET DOWN OUTSIDE AT IGLOOFEST 2013

A true born-and-bred Montreal phenomenon, electronic music festival Igloofest has changed thousands of people’s minds about spending hours outdoors in wintry January and February – now in it’s seventh year, the Igloofest party is bigger than ever, spanning four weekends in the picturesque Old Port…

MONTREAL BUZZ GUIDE TO NEW YEAR’S EVE 2012

New Year’s Eve in Montreal, a town with a well-established reputation for not taking its festivities lightly, provides ample opportunity for old acquaintances not to be forgotten or never brought to mind. From Crescent Street to St-Laurent Blvd., from downstairs jazz clubs to skyscraper-high dance clubs, and from comedy to cabaret to food to live music, ushering in a New Year in Montreal is fraught with nothing so much as possibility. Consider these your keys to the city, and more importantly on Dec. 31, the party…

BLACK & BLUE FESTIVAL 2012: EVOLUTION

For the 22nd edition of the landmark Black & Blue Festival (October 3 – 9) thousands of people will flock to the Palais des congres in Montreal to celebrate life and dance until the sun does down… and comes back up again! The theme this year is “Evolution” and invites people to forget about those crazy “end of the world” prophecies and just enjoy each moment we have here to the fullest, all while supporting a great cause.

SOCIETY FOR ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY (SAT)

The SAT, or Society for Arts and Technology, is one of Montreal’s most dynamic and innovative spaces. Home to everything from cultural happenings to DJ nights (including many of the Mutek festival events over the years), it’s an impressive venue with a tech-centered, cutting-edge mandate. What they’ve added recently speaks directly to this point: the Foodlab, a guerilla kitchen with an eye towards experimentation, and the Satosphere, a 360-degree immersive environment filled with projectors and over 150 speakers. We sent our cameraman to give you a sneak peak but make sure you check it out for yourself. Society for Arts and Technology, 1201 Saint-Laurent, (514) 844-2033

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: OCTOBER 28 TO NOVEMBER 3

At the centre of the week ahead is Montreal’s favourite holiday: Halloween! Some have futilely argued with me that Halloween isn’t actually a holiday; they are wrong. Just like any other holiday worth its salt, Halloween has traditional costumes (witches, the living dead, sexy kitties), special dishes (candy), and time-honoured rituals (treat or treating, dance parties, making out with masked strangers). And this week, Halloween is celebrated from Friday night to Monday night! And in between, catch some live music, theatre, dance, a new movie and life-altering art…

MONTREAL’S BLACK & BLUE 2011

While the dress code may have been “black and blue”, skin seemed to be the dominant garment of choice at BlackJack21: Black & Blue 2011. 6000 ravers made the pilgrimage to their version of a holy site that this year found itself back at the Olympic Stadium…

THE LEGENDARY PIKNIC ELECTRONIK

The legendary (nay, the infamous) summer event that hardly needs an introduction, Piknic Electronik, goes down every Sunday from May 22 to September 25…

OSHEAGA ARTS: KID KOALA AT THE BIOSPHERE

If you’re looking to immerse yourself in a place where nature and culture meet in wild abandon and the music never stops, the massive outdoor music and arts festival Osheaga has you covered. On top of that, Osheaga amps up its oft-overshadowed Arts component during the month of July by inviting Montreal favourite Kid Koala to install his immersive audio-visual creation, Space Cadet, in the Biosphere. Has there ever been a better pairing of artist and venue?

LESBIAN MONTREAL: JUNE

Summer is off to its cavalier start in good old Montreal. Montreal is a must-have-bike kind of a city in the summer, so even if you’re in town for just a bit, take a Bixi out to your next outing. We’ve got a fancy indie flea market where the cutest of the cutest will surely be, all sorts of nakedness at the Fringe Fest and Cirque du Soleil’s highly anticipated Totem…
