The 10th annual edition of Igloofest is upon us, and this year the folks behind the Old Port dance-party series are importing quite a line-up: Between Carl Craig, Brodinksi, Kim Ann Foxman, Modeselektor, Mr. Oizo, Paul Kalkbrenner and the Martinez Brothers are among them, as well as a fine assortment of local DJs including Poirier, Misstress Barbara, RYAN Playground, WYLN, Pierre Kwenders, Shaydakiss, Mini and Black Tiger Sex Machine, not to mention Lunice, who played on the same bill as Bonobo this past weekend.

There are still three weekends of Igloofest ahead, Thursdays through Saturdays from Jan. 21 to Feb. 6, 7:30 to 11 p.m. Tickets cost $20 in advance or on site at the Quai Jacques Cartier entrance before 7 p.m. — after 7 p.m., the price goes up to $25.
