We’ll be missing the fun frenzy of Igloofest after this weekend, when the 2015 edition comes to a close, that’s for sure – but lucky for us, there’s lots more Montréal madness where that came from.

Last hurrah Don’t you go missing the last of the outdoor dance festival Igloofest now, which will go out with a bang with a wild weekend featuring international track masters Paco Osuna, Midland B2B Paul Woolford, Dubfire, Luciano, Girl Unit and Ernesto Ferreyra. Locals will be lighting up the nights too, with Jimmy Be, Robert Robert, Cri and Dead Horse Beats presiding on Friday night; Nico Sé, Eekkoo and Maybe Moby Is Playing Tonight on Saturday; and Cristobal Urbina and The One Tash signing out until next year on Sunday. For those interested in winning the Iglooswag contest, based on best costume, the theme for the last weekend is “white as snow.” So pull out your white one-piece snowsuit!

If you love skating, come to the Old Port of Montréal at dusk for one of the beautiful musical evenings, starting at 6 p.m., when you can skate under the twinkling lights with a view on the city on one side, and the St. Lawrence on the other.
