SUB.Culture: Montréal Episode 3

After-hours culture is an essential aspect of Montréal’s thriving nightlife. Whether it’s loft parties, warehouse raves or showing up at Stereo nightclub at 4 am, the late night draw of Québec’s metropolis has never been stronger.
“We’re big believers of collaborating with the right people,” points out John Hatz, founder of Neon events. “Rather than trying to compete, it’s just easier to collaborate than fight over it.”

In their final segment of SUB.Culture Montréal, THUMP takes a dive into the underground and the city’s culture of collaboration within both Anglophone and French speaking communities, sitting down with major local influencers Neon, Saintwoods, and Samourais Des Jungles Urbaines to discuss their take on the city’s vibrant nightlife culture.

SUB.Culture: Montréal Episode 2

Winter devours nearly half the seasonal year in Montreal. But unlike most Canadians, hibernation is not instinctive to Montreal party-goers. A true testament to this resilience is Igloofest, the outdoor winter music festival spread across four weekends in Montreal’s Old Port. The festival has become a staple in the city’s culture and nightlife.

It really shows the fortitude of the city. We will party under all conditions and you will not stop us,” says Jeff Waye, the A&R for Ninja Tune Records.

In Part 2 of SUB.Culture Montréal we talk to some of this year’s Igloofest artists Flosstradamus and Kill Frenzy, and those built the festival to its current fame, founders Michel Quintal and Nicolas Cournoyer, and communications and marketing director Maripierre D’Amour.
