Les Francos de Montréal, one of the best festivals for french music lovers, had announced its indoor lineup a few weeks ago and unveiled today its free outdoor lineup! From June 10 to 18, it’s time to reclaim the city in festival mode with the return of over a hundred free performances in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles. This effervescent and uncompromising edition will let you experience the Francos as you like them: musical discoveries, exclusive shows and your favorite artists to celebrate the rich diversity of francophone music together.
With over 120 shows spread on over 5 stages, there is a free show for everyone! Some of the higlights include Loud Lary Ajust‘s grand return (closing the festival after opening it with a sold-out show at Club Soda on June 9th), Koriass (which we just caught with FouKi at Metro Metro on Friday), Hubert Lenoir, as well as a vibrant tribute to Karim Ouellet who left us earlier this year. If these names don’t already sound very appealing, you can check out the full list below:
Les Francos de Montréal will be taking place from June 10th to 18th around Montreal’s Place des Arts. For tickets and more information, visit the festival’s website. To keep track of all the shows, learn more about the artists and build your own schedule, you should also download the Les Francos mobile app, available on Apple and Android.
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
