This year was the 15th edition of Montréal en Lumière aka High Lights Festival, and those who had the chance to check it out certainly got great value for their money! It ended with the Nuit blanche, which attracted over 350,000 people until the early morning Sunday. Despite the cold weather, people were feeling festive this weekend. Can you believe that it is the event that attracts the most people in one night in Montreal? Rain or shine, Montrealers are always up to celebrate! We got to dance like there was no tomorrow at la Place des Festivals!
What’s interesting about this kind of event is that people from all backgrounds, origins and ages danced together. There was no boundaries! Certainly a moment to remember. Fantastic art projected on the walls, some snowflakes, great beats and happy people. That kickstarted our night beautifully. Thousands of tweets and Instagram pictures were identified with the hashtag #NBMTL.

To keep us moving, there was a mandatory stop to be done at la SAT. http://instagram.com/p/lBpf5qjTqj/ We totally enjoyed the installation on the first floor: Mémorsion by Manuel Chantre. That was the artist’s thoughts on urban places. We found ourselves absorbed by a monochromatic ambiance where shadows and lights were the center of attraction.

The famous dome, commonly called Satosphère, was packed with cool people. If you haven’t experienced it before, you must! We be tripping all night looking at the sky and dancing on cool electro beats.
