Since 1989, the FrancoFolies de Montréal, which lasts just under 10 days, has been setting the Quartier des Spectacles entertainment district ablaze. In general, the event takes place around 15th July and brings together artists from around the world. Nearly 70 indoor performances and 180 outdoor concerts, all free to the general public. Showcasing different musical worlds and styles, the street concerts are an opportunity to discover new artists and new styles in a festive and friendly atmosphere. At the heart of the city, this cultural event is a true reference in francophone and world music.
