Christmas is over, the new year is in, and its winter! although here in New York it may not necessarily feel like its winter, because it has not yet "snowed". However, its amongst us and the season has its benefits:
- Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows
- Showing off your new Boots or Jacket
- Snowball Fights
- Building a Snowman
- skiing or snowboarding
Just to name a few, ah and then there is IGLOOFEST
What is IGLOOFEST?
Igloofest is a Annual Outdoor Winter venue that is held in the Vieux-Port De Montreal ( Montreal's Old Port ) in the Canadian Province of Quebec. It started in 2007 and has been growing dramatically over the past couple of years. 2014 Igloofest saw a record breaking attendance after adding an additional stage and night to the venue, with over 85,000 guests and featuring over 100 artist, some of which were LEBARON, Mateo Murphy, Ida Engberg, and Adam Beyer.
Now for those of you who don't know Canada too well, or have never been there during peak winter, its pretty freaking cold. Ive been up to Montreal about 25-30 times since i was about 5 years old. Igloofest 2014 was my first encounter with REAL Canadian Winter and i had no idea what i was getting myself into, But ill leave those details for my Travel Blog about this trip.
Ill also give you some pointers on what you can wear to an event like this in the Fashion Blog.
Igloofest 2014 was totally worth the 8 Hour drive from Brentwood,NY for me and not to mention the ticket prices! 18.00$ Canadian! which comes out to about 16$ american. Its truly a great experience, filled with a ton of great people, you feel like you're in another part of the world even though its so close to home ( if you're american or live in the states) because of the Language ( Official Language of Quebec is French ). The music was great and I'm glad i got to see my Favorite DJ/Producer Adam Beyer and his Wife ida Engberg from Drumcode Label play on the night of February 8th which was the closing night.
I can go on and on about what took place but you can read about that in the Travel Blog, ill let the Video i took do the rest.
