Illumination Night: This party is everyone’s business!

C2 team
Soirée Illumination: LE party que vous ne voulez pas manquer

You’ve worked hard all week, now it’s time to play even harder…

Again this year, the annual closing-night blowout celebration, Illumination Night, presented by Stradigi AI, will feature an amazing lineup of local legends to get your blood pumping and your feet moving.

The Illumination Night party always kicks the summer off in a big way, and will occur rain or shine on Friday, May 24 starting at 8 pm. It will feature performances by DJ Kelly and the Cuban, Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian-inspired mixes of Nana Zen, genre-bending good vibes from The Fitness & Pony, pop-house producer Pascale Project, the unique hip-hop stylings of Jacobus, soulful electro duo Beat Market, multi-genre-exploring DJ Dre Ngozi and adventurous house/techno artist FORREST.

The evening will be lit up courtesy of visuals from Bewoy and Dalkhafine.


Bright lights, big party — and all are welcome

Access to Illumination Night is included with the C2 Total Experience three-day passes and day passes, but we also put a few tickets up for sale so that you can invite your Montréal friends to join you. Act fast and buy your tickets before they’re all gone, as there are only a limited number available (and they always sell out).

And don’t forget to bring your smart badge — it’s what gains you entrance to the party!


Good times await all appetites

There’s also no need to look for a dinner reservation on Friday night. Several of Montreal’s most famous (and delicious) food trucks will be on hand and open ’til 1 am, including Mi Corazon, Greg’s Diner, Birdhouse Wingerie and Bar, Boîte à fromages, Gaspésie and Pizzéria No. 900. You’ll also have the option to sit down in the RBC Hangar at Cho, an Asian-fusion eatery serving tapas and mains with a Québécois twist. Le Lunch Box, Parma Café, Coba Bar and Ryú sushi bar will also be onsite and open until close to take care of your late-night snacking.

For the thirsty, VIP bottle service will be offered in the Agora, and the Cabana is back to take its rightful place in the Plaza. Local Montreal gin artists Romeo’s Gin and award-winning Canadian vodka Pur Vodka will also be on the menu, and the whole evening will be powered by Peroni. We’ll also be prepared should you want to bubble things up with some Veuve Clicquot.


So come on down and let your party light shine at Illumination Night, presented by Stradigi AI — get your tickets now.
