Preview: Bal en BLanc 17

For 364 days every year, fellow Montrealers alike aimlessly gawk at the myriad of EDM spectacles offered hundreds and thousands of kilometers away. For the past 16 years, Easter weekend has given them an opportunity to give the same treatment to the rest of the world. Heralded as one of Canada’s most prestigious events, Bal en Blanc is the child of Playground Productions, the Montreal-based event company responsible for organizing most of the big happenings on the somber island. The affair takes place downtown, at the Palais des Congrès, where the stages are split amongst 2 rooms: House and Trance. Attendees are required to dress in white, as per the title, and include people of all creeds, ages (18+) and sexual orientations. From youthful producers like Avicii and Ben Gold, to tried and tested veterans such as Armand van Helden and Cosmic Gate, Bal en Blanc holds something for everyone.

We have prepared a special post for this momentous event:

The Hawt’s writers have been given the privilege to fully cover the event. We will be wearing press passes, scurrying backstage, talking to DJs, capturing phenomenal photographs and reporting this event to the best of our ability. In addition, we will be giving you high quality recordings of the sets from the Trance room. Check back with The Hawt on the days following the event for a full low-down on what went on. We hope to see you there and wish you a happy Bal en Blanc!
