ÎLESONIQ in 2022.
Fansof electro music have reason to rejoice: the ÎLESONIQ festival presents today what it considers to be its “most impressive programming nowadays”. On the program: The Chainsmoskers, Martin Garrix, Alesso, Above & Beyond, deadmau5, Slander and more.
The eighth edition of the renowned festival will be held on the weekend of August 12 and 13, still at Parc Jean-Drapeau.

This edition will be marked by the unprecedented arrival as headliner of Dutch DJ and producer Martin Garrix. The artist – who has collaborated with big names such as Avicii, David Guetta, Dua Lipa and Tiësto, as well as being number one on the top 100 of DJ Mag em>for a fourth year – is still one of the most requested by îLESONIQ fans. His visit is therefore likely to attract crowds.

Same thing for deadmau5, Above & Beyond and Alesso, who will be able to prove once again why they are such big names in the electronic scene.
