Some might say it’s the best party in town, others might refer to it as more of a “fête”; either way, everyone agrees that when it comes to showcasing French-language music, no event does it better than Les Francos de Montréal!
For ten sonorous days, the best musical talents of the French-speaking world overtake the Quartier des Spectacles in this annual celebration of French-language music. Nearly 250 concerts, of which two thirds are presented free at some fifteen outdoor or indoor venues, attest to the effervescent quality, diversity and energy of the franco music scene.
Deemed the (un)official kick-off to summer, Les Francos gets Montréal’s festival ball rolling with an eclectic lineup of outstanding francophone artists from here and abroad. Hip-hop, crooners, rock, pop, folk, electronic music…everything and anything goes at this popular music festival driven by originality and talent.
Closed to traffic, the outdoor festival site is safe and easily accessible by foot, public transit or even bike. Take in a concert, grab a bite, have a drink with friends: everything you need for a great festival experience is on site.
Since 1989, Les Francos de Montréal has been the true reflection of a thriving French-speaking music world. It has established itself as a prominent platform for artists, launching the careers of superstars likes of Marie Mai, Jean Leloup, Diane Tell, Koriass, Patrick Bruel, Angèle and more.
A popular summertime happening for everyone of all ages and languages, Les Francos brings people together to dance, celebrate and revel in la francophonie.
