Festival season is upon us, and 1 hour outside of Montreal, Canada you can find AIM Electronic Music Festival, offering an unparalleled festival experience, where attendees may immerse themselves in more than 24 hours of non-stop music, while camping amidst nature and friends. This year’s edition marks the 5th anniversary of AIM, in which the festival will be taking it back to their roots, with a curated lineup which will offer longer set times, for the ultimate musical journey. This year’s theme is ‘Monolithes City‘ – which is a trip into the concrete jungle, an urban tale annexed into nature held firmly by its roots.
