îLESONIQ bills itself as “Canada’s premiere dance music festival,” and the just-announced lineup for its 2024 edition is strong enough to validate that claim. The Bell-presented two-day festival takes place on three stages, August 10-11, 2024, at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, presenting a mix of some of the genre’s biggest names and up-and-comers.

The festival, which a press release says has its “DNA...steeped in EDM,” includes big names all weekend on the OASIS stage. Those include godfather Tiësto, DJ Snake, Canadian hit act Loud Luxury (they closed out the 2021 fest), Subtronics, Zedd, Timmy Trumpet, Audien and Jason Ross.

The MIRAGE stage will host underground house and melodic techno, via the likes of Ukrainian DJ superstar Miss Monique, star actor and DJ Idris Elba, Green Velvet and Patrick Topping, NGHTMRE meeting JAUZ and supertrio MASTERHAND.

The NEON stage presents Paris-born Samplifire, Montreal favourite, Wooli, Sub Focus & Dimension, Italian couple Giolì & Assia, Lilly Palmer, veteran Paul Kalkbrenner and Space 92 x Popof’s project TURBULENCES.


The Parc Jean-Drapeau celebration will also be preceded by a day of parties "in the city" on August 9. Details for those events are still TBA.

Two-day tickets are already on sale, with single-day tickets available March 19 at 11 a.m. General admission starts at $210, with a variety of other luxury and VIP options for more.

îLESONIQ is produced by evenko and presented in collaboration with Live Nation and INK Entertainment, with support from I Love Neon. The fest premiered in 2014, drawing 75,000 attendees. Last year's edition, featuring headliners The Chainsmokers and Martin Garrix, attracted 180,000 fest-goers.
