Swiss-Chilean DJ and producer Luciano was on the decks for this year's conclusion, and while his set was satisfying enough, it didn't necessarily feel like a proper signoff, either. He played a smooth house set throughout, with a barrage of quasi-buildups, that did well to appease the few hundred Day-Glo revellers who've only just discovered the '90s, but the majority of the evening's playlist felt largely pre-recorded, with Luciano seemingly more concerned with his onstage crew, repeated hand gestures and solo dancing. Sure, there were a few moments that prompted collective exhilaration, but the set as a whole never felt like it actually lifted off.
Which might be the underlying issue with the 2015 edition of Igloofest: where previous years had sold-out nights that elicited moments that are still remembered — such as Buraka Som Sistema and Sébastien Léger in 2012 or TNGHT and A Tribe Called Red in 2013 — these past two editions have felt somewhat uninspired. A healthy dose of inspiration might be in order for next year.
