A weekend like the one we just had reminds us why we do what we do. When an event pulls together THAT many people (more than 20,000 in one weekend!), it makes us stand back and say, "Wow, that's amazing!!!"! The acts on the stage were all completely charmed, and we all fell that cosmic pat on the back that keeps us going. Friday, the guys from Round Table Knights were seduced – or floored – by the event's atmosphere and the wild energy. They delivered a set that was simply magical, the kind that stamps a smile on your face and pulls your feet into hyperactive overdrive. Just before the end of their set, here's what we heard the duo utter: WOW ... If Piknic Électronik was the highlight of our summer, then Igloofest was the highlight of our winter ... well, the best gig of our life ! We're honoured to have conjured up such a reaction. It's priceless!

Saturday, a temperature of -23°C didn't dissuade from coming out for our evening with MUTEK. Actually, so many of you came out we broke our attendance record on the coldest day imaginable: some 8850 Igloofesters braved the Siberian winds and joined the Igloo kingdom. It gave ample reason for Radio-Canada's Jean-Phillippe Cipriani to claim on Saturday morning that the only way to warm up during this cold snap was to get down to Igloofest!


Inside the Jacques-Cartier Pavillion, the Iglooboutique was literally emptied by fans in search of souvenirs. If you didn't have a chance to pick up your special toque, keep in mind we're expecting a new shipment for this final weekend.

Thanks again to all the artists, who over and over again proved their talents and their generosity. The marathon picks up again on Thursday; be ready for one final journey into the igloo.
