Montreal is set for another musical festival as ÎleSoniq is ready to take over from where Osheaga left off. For the second weekend in a row, the Decompoz Team heads back to the île Sainte-Hélène when ÎleSoniq kicks things off on Friday at 1pm for its third edition.
During the festival rich season in the city of Montreal, ÎleSoniq is still considered a rookie looking to prove its worth among other heavyweights such as Osheaga, Jazz Fest, Igloofest, and many others large-scale events in the city. Entering its third edition, ÎleSoniq is finally finding its identity and becoming a backbone of Montreal’s summer festival season.
After modest beginnings, ÎleSoniq has quietly and steadily turned into one of the standout events of the summer with a new generation of festival-goers and EDM lovers making the genre flourish to new heights and popularity.
Electro music fans have been a patiently waiting since the line-up was announced this past April. Headliners this year include Zedd, The Chainsmokers, Skrillex, DVBBS, Andrew Bayer, Botnek, Pierce Fulton, Snails, Grandbuda, Jai Wolf, and many more recognizable names in the EDM sphere.
The pre-party at Newspeak leading up to the event warmed up fans for the heavy two-day line up spread across three stages at Parc Jean-Drapeau. The after parties at Le Belmont, New City Gas, and Circus Afterhours will embrace the restless and insomniac dancers looking to shuffle until the wee hours of the night.
Decompoz will be on site during the two-day festivities and through our lenses will capture the electric vibe of the weekend and the colorful experience of ÎleSoniq. From the most outrageous attire, to the best shuffle dance, we will bring you the best onsite experience of Montreal’s biggest EDM festival.
