Ile Soniq Summer Party

Updated: May 8, 2017

The Ultimate Summer Party Destination

Are you desperately searching to celebrate the glory of summer with the ultimate outdoor party? Look no further than Ile Soniq, Montreal’s wildest summer festival!

Few festivals can compare to the eccentricity and restlessness of Ile Soniq. Taking place following the indie rock-oriented Osheaga Music and Arts Festival, the rambunctious Ile Soniq welcomes dozens of electronic artists on three immense outdoor stages. At Ile Soniq, clamor is common, individuality is embraced, and madness is celebrated.

While Montreal’s flourishing EDM and club culture is often confined to underground raves and late-night venues for years, Ile Soniq provides the opportunity to revolutionize the city’s dance music scene by allowing inhibition to run wild in a wide open space.

In 2014, the inauguration of Montreal’s EDM festival allowed the creatures of the night to adjust their eyes to daylight. Suddenly, the underground raves and late-night clubs became the picturesque venue that is Parc Jean-Drapeau. Suddenly, high-profile artists such as Australian-born rapper Iggy Azalea, Dutch hit-maker DJ Tiesto, and American rapper Juicy J flocked to Montreal to partake in a festival that dared to break all of the rules. Suddenly, the city’s EDM scene was rescued from ambiguity.

As the festival enters its fourth year, you can expect that the music will be louder, that the crowds will be larger, and that the party will be crazier! Scheduled performers include Tiesto, EDM phenomenon Porter Robinson, Dutch house DJ Afrojack, hip hop trio Migos, award-winning French producer Cedric Gervais, and chart-topping rapper Desiigner.

Brace yourself for pure pandemonium, and prepare to be engulfed in a maelstrom of aesthetically pleasing illumination, deafening beats, and frenzied dancing!
