Canada’s premier dance party îLESONIQ announces phase 1 artists

îLESONIQ, Canada’s premier dance party presented in collaboration with Bud Light, is gearing up for its 7th edition August 7th & 8th on the state-of-the-art Espace 67 festival site of Parc Jean-Drapeau on Montreal’s picturesque île Sainte-Hélène. On August 6th, îLESONIQ en Ville will also take over many different venues in the city to get everyone hyped for a weekend of unforgettable music.

The #ILESONIQFAM has so many reasons to celebrate this year, as some of the biggest DJs in the world prepare to descend on Montreal for THE summer party which will help set the tone for a new decade.

Artists such as The Godfather of EDM, TIËSTO, whose signature house & trance sets have solidified his reputation as one of the greatest DJs of all time. Canada’s own DEADMAU5, one of the most influential EDM artists in the world, will get the crowd into a frenzy with a signature progressive house set on the gigantic OASIS stage, as well as his techno alias TESTPILOT on the underground house/techno NEON stage. Representing the best France has to offer, the notorious MAALA will team up with his sometimes-partner-in-crime, DJ SNAKE, to elevate the people to ecstatic heights with magenta riddims and relentless beats.

Dancehall legend SEAN PAUL will be on hand to raise the temperature with his imperial blaze and all-in pop sensibilities, backed by his full live band. Hip-hop heads can expect the street gossip from LIL BABY whose rhythm and flow makes him one of the most exciting rappers in the game. B2B (back to back) sets from 12TH PLANET & RIOT TEN as well as HE$H & BOMMER will have fans of dubstep dancing up a storm. DON DIABLO will provide a glimpse of the future of dance music while Juno Award winners LOUD LUXURY will show why Canada goes deep when it comes to house music!
