Ancient Future Festival 2017

Ancient Future Festival is situated at a woodland spot by the water at the old port. Once a year in September this festival transforms the spot into a little utopian world which is a hub for electronic music, visual arts, and circus arts all with a fantastic view of the St-Laurent river and Quai de l'Horloge. The outdoor venue has a couple of stages with masses of people dancing amongst the trees surrounded by hammocks, local vendors, and fire dancing circus acts. However once the sun has fully set, the final venue opens up at the immense warehouse next door with a gigantic sounsystem and trippy visuals to enable the festival goers to rave all night long. 

Ancient Future organizers are also associated with La Bacchanale parties which are renowned for their raves. All this to say, happening September 8th to 9th is a festival you do not want to miss! This year you can see artists like Mall Grab, Hudson Mohawke, Kevin Saunderson, The Underachievers, Folamour, Omar Souleyman, and many more. The festival also features many local acts.
