AIM Electronic Music Festival – July 14 to 16, 2017 (Montreal)
AIM Electronic Music Festival is returning for a third edition on July 14, 15, and 16 at Carillon Park in the municipality of St-André-d’Argenteuil located in the Laurentians [less than an hour away from Montreal]. AIM is unique in its genre among the Quebec festival circuit and this, especially due to its line-up which features renowned artists in the electronic music realm. The 2017 line-up proposes: ÂME (live), HENRIK SCHWARZ (live), JOHN TALABOT, LEE FOSS, NASTIA, ANABEL ENGLUND, NIC FANCIULLI, PETER POWER, DENNIS FERRER,SIMON PATTERSON, MARK SIXMA, GUY J, GUY MANTZUR,SEAN TYAS, GAI BARONE and several more, including local and Canadian artists.
Often compared to a mini-Tomorrowland and situated next to the Ottawa River where impressive monoliths sit to commemorate the historic Battle of Long Sault, AIM has positioned itself since 2015 as a platform for electronic music. Presented on four stages, AIM’s line-up has something for the niched listener, the music-lover, and those ready to discover electronic music in all its forms: techno, house, deep house, trance, and electronica are all on the menu.
AIM will present over 50 artists, both DJs and live groups, hand-picked by our team. However, the AIM Experience is much more than just music. It is also about cutting-edge visuals, art installations, foodtrucks, workshops and on-site camping that allow for an immersive experience, appealing to all the senses. AIM has a lot to offer for electronic music enthusiasts and those seeking to live both a human and musical weekend experience that is sure to be unforgettable.
AIM offers 3 days of experiences starting on Friday, July 14th from 3:00PM to 1:00AM before launching into its staple 32 hours of non-stop music from Saturday 10:00AM to Sunday 6:00PM. Campers can bring their own alcohol in the camping zone. AIM offers shuttles throughout the entire weekend with departures at BERRI UQAM and MONTMORENCY metro station.
