Stage dive into summer at ’77 Montréal, the annual punk rock festival that celebrates both the biggest and all-time-best international bands of the genre as well as up-and-comers and local Montréal faves of both yesterday and today.
Started as an homage on the 40-year anniversary of the spawning of punk rock in 1977, ’77 Montréal pulls all eras and styles of punk — hardcore, garage, SoCal, ska, skate, British, Celtic, goth and more — under one heavily tattooed umbrella for a high-octane day of festivities. Multiple stages, concert poster art exhibits, a vendor village, chill zones and Montréal’s famous food trucks are all regular features of the festival. And perfect for the parental punks among us, ’77 Montréal is a family friendly, all-ages event, with its popular Kids Zone hosting a variety of amenities and activities for pint-sized punk rockers (children aged 10 and under are admitted to the fest for free but must be accompanied by an adult). All the slam-dancing action takes place in Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, just minutes by metro from downtown Montréal.
The 2019 edition of ’77 Montréal has the kind of lineup that punk rock dreams are made of, featuring headlining California mega-groups Bad Religion and Pennywise as well as seminal punk and hardcore bands like the U.K.’s The Exploited and New York City’s Cro-Mags. And of special note is an appearance by hardcore punk supergroup OFF, comprised of members of the legendary bands Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Redd Kross and Rocket from the Crypt.
Enjoy the best of Montréal
