Trade Your Winter Boots for Dancing Shoes because Your About to Have a Month-Long Party
The Society for Arts and Technology, known as SAT, will host Domesicle from January 14th to February 18th. If you have ever seen a large dome-shaped building in the heart of Montreal, you will be pleasantly surprised that it is the home of everything digital, from music to art and technology.
Domesicle is an ode to electronic music and its various forms and will host a solid lineup of DJs, VJs, and other artists to keep the party rocking until 3:00 am. This is not your ordinary concert because, within the dome, you will be thrust into an immersive experience surrounded by massive screens while dancing on a huge dancefloor.
Where to Go and How Much Are Tickets
The Domesicle Festival is open to anyone 18 years old or older, and the party lasts from 10:00 am to 3:00 am. Tickets are incredibly consumer friendly, costing only 18$ per show, and getting a two-show pass for 26$ is an even better deal. You can find the iconic dome and all the wonders it holds with its walls at 1201 Boulevard St. Laurent, Montreal, H2X2S6. To book your tickets, please click here: https://sat.qc.ca/en/ticketing.

Re: Union featuring: Weekend Logic, Daura, Moaad BKR
A Montreal group created by Adam Solomon (Weekend Logic), Daura, and Moaad BKR has the sole purpose of making you forget everything on the outside world as they immerse into a wild world of music. This group of artists uses electronic dance music that spans many generations, so you can expect to hear a song or two from bygone eras. Special guest OJPB will be blasting away bass and dubstep beats that will have you sweating in no time. VJ artists Isotone and Vlair will be in charge of the 360-degree screen, and if you cannot handle flashing lights, you should avoid this show altogether.

Making Time presents: Priori, Claire Rousay, Dave P
All good things must come to an end, and Domesicle will sadly host its final night of performances on Saturday, February 18th. Making Time will have an exciting lineup ending Domesicle with a bang. Claire Rousay will bring her fascinating usage of everyday sounds to create stunning musical pieces that keep you in touch with human relationships and self-perception.
Francis Latreille, AKA Priori, is a Quebecois musician/DJ, and since his first album release in 2019, he has built up a small, satisfied group of fans. DJ Dave P, who was and is a prominent DJ in the Philadelphia and New York techno scenes, will have you quickly realize why he has gained residency in distinguished clubs. Easy to dance to, Dave P’s beats flow throughout the entire body. Klip Collective will have the honor of being the final VJ to take hold of the 360-degree world you will be immersed in.
