AIM Electronic Music Festival is a must-do camping road-trip

There’s a magical 3-day electronic music festival just outside of Montreal just waiting to be discovered. With over 60 artists in three days in a gorgeous outdoor setting, AIM Electronic Music Festival  is really something to add to your summer road-tip bucket list.

Back for the fourth year, AIM is taking place July 6, 7 & 8 at Parc Carillon, Quebec (one hour outside of Montreal). The line-up has names such as Claude Von Stroke, Dubfire, Aly & Fila, and John O’Callaghan. With five stages, camping, and three full days and nights of incredible talent, we’re already packing our tent.

What’s unique about this festival is the venue. Since it’s in a beautiful woodland park with camping, festival goers get 24 hours of non-stop music. The line-up is diverse and has something for everyone – whether you like hard-hitting techno, to uplifting progressive house, to hefty bass, to dynamic trance.

You may want to spend all day at the AIM Stage catching Canada’s own techno legend Carlo Lio, Dirtybird’s mastermind Claude Von Stroke, house legend Dany Tenaglia, or the extremely talented UK duo Way Out West (live) made up of Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff. Or, you might want to check out the Bass Camp, Trance Arena, or one of the other smaller stages titled Monolithes and Mutli-Culti. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong with a line-up this diverse.

This festival is unique,  because it’s so much more than just bright lights and music. AIM is an interactive, immersive experience with no frills and a focus on the real music fans. For something different than the regular festival scene, it’s definitely worth making the trip.
