Photo Essay: Igloofest Weekend 2

Posted by Jer / January 26, 2012

Igloofest - Weekend 2Igloofest broke more records again this past weekend. Apparently, Saturday night's line up of DJs and musicians brought over 10,000 people down to the old port. That stat becomes a little crazier when you remember it was -20C out. Amazingly, special contributor/photographer Shannon Heather braved the cold to take a few photos and make a few observations of the party. We share them here below to get you primed for the last few days of Igloofest, taking place this weekend.

Igloofest - Weekend 2The event coordinators of Igloofest have done a good job at creating essentially what is a giant playground for adults.

Igloofest - Weekend 2Fire pits dotted throughout the site offer warmth to frozen fingers and tush's alike.

Igloofest - Weekend 2Meteorologists measured a difference of 10 degrees between the quays and the crowd this weekend, but the lights don't hurt in heating things up.

Igloofest - Weekend 2The snowsuit onesie population of Montreal is growing rapidly thanks to the fest.

Igloofest - Weekend 2It is rumoured that if you dance hard enough, you might be rewarded with a brief but memorable sighting of the abominable snowman.

Igloofest - Weekend 2Skeletons, pandas, dinosaurs and neon tribal drumming: all part of the Canadian experience.

Igloofest - Weekend 2New to this year's edition of the fest is a slippery tug-of-war that tends to draw people to either end of the rope to lend a hand.

Igloofest - Weekend 2There should probably be a prize for best dance beast.

Igloofest - Weekend 2France's Terence Fixmer was popular both with the crowd and backstage.

Igloofest - Weekend 2Spot-the-Santa is easy so how about spot-the-helmet? I always make fun of people who wear helmets without seeming reason but the amount of snow boots flying through the air render this guy logical.

Igloofest - Weekend 2The dance igloo, with its concentrated space, becomes a bumpin' place as the night wears on.

an extra special thanks to Shannon Heather for partying on our behalf.
