It’s always a great time when we get to chat with a group of talented performers, and this year’s lineup for ‘77 Montreal features just that! The one-day festival takes place in Montreal on July 26, 2019, at Parc Jean-Drapeau. Get your tickets HERE. We started the countdown off with The Lookout, then MUTE, and today we spoke with Toronto-based punk quartet, Anti-Queens.
First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi hello! We are the Anti-Queens from Toronto Ontario Canada.
’77 Montreal is a full day celebrating alternative music. How does it feel to be a part of the amazing lineup?

Have you taken part in ’77 Montreal before? If so, what was the highlight of your previous involvement?

The line-up for the 2019 installment is incredible, is there one specific performer that you’re most excited to check out?

Are you performing at any other festivals this summer that you’d like to tell us about?
We have already performed at Pouzza Fest and will be at Rockfest June 14th on the Tony Sly stage. Later in the summer, we will be performing at the Elora River Fest.
