Montreal 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 Beach Club Montreal comes in, a sprawling 5000 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, Beach Club’s Ibiza festival is a popular attraction.
The club’s 2016 season kicks off on May 22nd with trance man Andrew Rayel and Marlo at the helm, while the following weekend sees David Guetta’s Beach Club debut. DJ Mag’s 2015 Top 100 winners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike hit the sand in June, and the following months will see the likes of Erick Morillo, Carnage and Armin Van Buuren. It seems there’s something for everyone’s ears at Beach Club; and if even if there isn’t, who can say no to a bottle of champagne on a sparkling Canadian beach?
