This boiling Montreal summer has brought us some of the most unforgettable club nights and fun-filled day parties of the year, leaving some of us to feel that the best of 2018 is already behind us. But turn down for what — am I right? There’s no reason to call it quits when the greatest is still incoming, with Beachclub Pointe-Calumet’s double-whammy of KASKADE x ILLENIUM playing day-long sets on Saturday, August 18th.
Kaskade is an American DJ who rose to fame alongside fellow producers deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner during the American prog-house revival that picked up around late 2008. His first full-length house debut “It’s You It’s Me” garnered him initial international acclaim, which was soon followed by a slew of house hits, electronic festival appearances, and 2 Grammy nominations: “Atmosphere,” the track, for Best Dance Recording, and “Atmosphere,” the album, for Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Nicholas D. Miller, better known for his work as musician ILLENIUM, started experimenting with beat-making after seeing Bassnectar perform live. In 2013 he dropped a self-titled EP, building himself a career that has grown into multiple collaborations with the best of the techno industry, and going on to win Remix of the Year at the 2017 Electronic Music Awards for his take on Flume’s “Say It.”
Beach Club, the open-pair paradise in Pointe-Calumet just half an hour from downtown MTL, is run amok with booze galore, tropical decor, and much, much more. There’s a glorious main stage, plenty of terraces, luxury beds, VIP sections and widescreen TVs all over. No wonder it’s widely dubbed the largest outdoor club in North America!
Tickets to dance the day away with Kaskade and ILLENIUM are $40 General Admission or $60 VIP (granting you fast access to the event, a VIP terrace, bathroom, and one Red Bull). Buy your tickets here.
