There are not many cities as crazy as Montreal, but you can safely say we push the concept of nightlife to its limits.

I mean its actual biological limits, because in Montreal we dance at outdoors festivals even if it -30 degrees outside.

Sounds unbelievable, but it's true. And this is what makes Igloofest so much fun. It is so damn cold outside that there is a communal spirit in the air. Everyone is assembled and has to dance and bunch up as close as possible just in order to stay warm and survive.

But this communal craziness isn't happening all winter long. In case you gone yet this year, and even if you have, keep in mind that tonight (Friday 28th) and tomorrow night are your last two chances to catch the Igloofest.

Here are my words of humble advice: one dress as if you're going skiing (some people even wear ski goggles) and two drink lots of that warm wine there, it will keep your blood flowing (just make sure you don't drive after, because it is a treacherous drink)

As an experience, Igloofest is amazing. The light works are beautiful, the ice structures impressive and the ambiance crazy. It's almost like a heavy metal show with people jumping up and down, pushing against each other, trying to move around in the compact crowd and the few brave souls doing crowd surfing and falling on your head.

The only negative thing I have to say about Igloofest is about the organization at the entrance of the site: why the hell is it so slow to get inside? Can't they hire more people? The event is such a hit, why are the organizers too damn cheap to hire extra staff at the door? Instead they let us freeze our balls waiting in a lineup without.

Regardless, get there early to avoid the line-up, sneak a little alcohol in a well hidden mickey if you can. And keep in mind that the event ends at midnight, so don't get there at 11 PM.

Here is a fun ad for Igloofest 2011:
