Montréal natives know how to party, and how to appreciate the fleeting months of warmth they experience every calendar year by taking advantage of their lakefront beaches. That’s where Beachclub comes in, a sprawling 5,000-person outdoor venue that knows what les habitants want and need — and provides it, from May to September. Situated on the sandy shores of Pointe-Calumet, it possesses a distinctly Balearic vibe with its cabanas and casual, bikini-clad attendees. Fittingly, Beachclub’s Ibiza festival is a popular attraction.
The club’s 2017 season kicks off with NYC house icon Danny Tenaglia, Carnage and Will Sparks, while the following weekend gets a dose of heavy techno with Drumcode boss Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati and Carlo Lio. Big names continue to hit the sand throughout June, with the likes of Nicky Romero, Armin van Buuren, Duke Dumont and DVBBS. It seems there’s something for everyone’s ears at Beachclub; and if even if your favorite DJ isn’t on the line-up, who can say no to a bottle of champagne on a sparkling Canadian beach?
