Five DJ female will be performing on the rue Jacques-Parizeau to the Electro Fret of the Quebec winter Carnival Friday night, for the second edition of the event. The organisers promise an evening of “Girl Power, electrifying and flamboyant”.
For this new edition of the Electro Fret, the artistic adviser André Verreault gave a lot of trouble to present artists of the decks of international stature.
Thus, the lovers of electronic music will be able to jiggle to the sounds of the American Kendoll and the Parisian Lady Style, before closing the evening with the Ukrainian Juicy M. From their side, the DJ québec Shieldie and Ryan Playground will launch the festivities.
The “fret” to provide
“Last year, it has been a very big success. Girls, it puts the party. I have the impression that they are more kneaded [the DJ male]. And yet, we don’t see enough!” said Mr. Verreault, in an interview with The Journal.
What’s more, pyrotechnic effects and fire artists will warm up the carnival-goers, while it provides a mercury oscillating between -15 and -24 degrees Celsius in the evening of Valentine’s day.
“A nice honor”
For Shieldie, a native of Quebec, it is “a nice honor” of mix in front of the people of his region and alongside artists international, at the Carnival.
“I was really, really, happy! To be part of a line-up with DJ known internationally, that I know of and that I am for several years, it is amazing!” she says.
Although she has never played his songs in an outdoor event, during the winter, she said that she was horny and ready to try the experience.
“It’s going to be special, we will dress warmly! she says with a laugh. But I have the impression that people will still respond better and dance because they are going to want to warm up.”
Shieldie will propose a style of “House music”, while adding “winks” of songs known through his songs, to attract the curiosity of spectators.
The Electro fret will begin to 18h, Friday, on the rue Jacques-Parizeau, and finish at 23h. Each artist will consist for a period of one hour.
