The 2014 edition of Igloofest has been a record-smashing success. The team behind Montreal’s favourite winter music festival really outdid themselves this year. In addition to adding a fourth weekend, they have increased the capacity of the second stage from 200 audience members to 700. The result: opportunity for more people than ever to experience what has become an important fixture in our city’s wintertime nightlife scene.

Saturday, February 8–Igloofest’s closing night–provided the icing on the cake with a completely sold-out show. In fact, a huge number of people hadn’t bought tickets in advance and were turned away. In all, the 2014 edition of Igloofest received over 85 000 visitors spread out over 12 nights. This year featured the work of over 100 artists from around the world, including those who provided visual projections.

Check out our photos from the Igloofest 2014 closing night, featuring Sweden’s Adam Beyer, Ida Engberg (also from Sweden), Montreal’s Mateo Murphy and LEBARON. Visual projections provided by Montreal-based artists Ma”, Diagraf, Hugues Clement and Oli Sorenson.
