îLESONIQ has been one of Canada's premier electronic music festivals since 2014, hosting an impressive array of DJs and even extending beyond EDM to include hip-hop heavyweights.
Presented by Bell, îLESONIQ returns to Montreal's stunning Parc Jean-Drapeau from August 5-7. The fest's organizers pulled out all the stops for the 2022 edition when they announced the first phase of the lineup last month, revealing one of its biggest lineups to date with headlining performances from Eric Prydz, Swedish House Mafia, and a massive B2B set by ILLENIUM and Excision.
But they didn't stop there.
Phase two has now been revealed, adding Montreal's own Black Tiger Sex Machine, German techno stalwart Dixon, and future house pioneer Don Diablo. Other major artists to be added to the lineup include French superstar Madeon, dubstep virtuoso Kompany, Egyptian trance duo Aly & Fila, and EDM.com Class of 2021 member Blanke.
You can check out the full lineup by day below.
