Les Francos – Day 3 – IN PHOTOS

Les Francos, Montreal QC
Day 3: June 12th, 2022
with Luv Resval, PLK and a tribute to Karim Ouellet

The gloomy weather didn’t stop day 3 of Les Francos, with rain jackets and umbrellas being the fashion accessory of choice. Luckily, the rain stopped in the early evening, before most of the shows started.

We kicked off our evening at MTelus for some French rap, with Luv Resval opening the show. The audience was already packed and moshpitting, so by the time headliner PLK jumped on, the frenzy only got bigger. We’ve been to many shows at MTelus over the years, but ones were you can feel the stage and floor bounce from jumps and the crowd screams drowning out the music is always impressive, especially in this case for an artist that is much bigger in France than Quebec!

After getting our dose of heavy rap rage, we headed to the Bell outdoor stage for a much more relaxed, but emotional show. Tonight’s big free concert was a tribute to Karim Ouellet, a friend of the festival who passed away earlier this year. Artists such as Ariane MoffattGabrielle ShonkAmélie NaultClaude BéginAlaclair EnsembleHubert Lenoir, and many more gathered on stage, singing Karim’s songs and paying him homage. It was a beautiful and heartwarming tribute, the perfect way for Montreal to say “Bye Bye Bye” to a great talent that left us way too soon.
