The Music Zones are back in Old Montreal for 2018!

For its 6th edition, 55 Quebec bands ranging from solo artists to sextets, will all be playing their very own compositions to give you a taste of Montréal’s current music scene. Don’t miss out on the 72 concerts that will take place in the hippest historic district out there!

The purpose of these two concert series, dedicated to Old-Montrealers*, is to entertain the district’s public areas during the lunch hour from 12PM to 1PM, June 19 to September 7, 2018.

The Place d’Armes Music Zone

If ever you find yourself near the Place d’Armes during the week, be sure to check out some outdoor concerts in Old Montreal’s core. The history and the architecture of the square will spring to life thanks to the live folk, funk, jazz and even cumbia music, playing during the lunch hour from Tuesday to Friday. Two winners of the Francouvertes 2018 will also be there on July 11 and August 7.

The Music Zone – Parc éphémère

The Parc éphémère, located at the heart of the Cité du multimedia, is the ideal place for lunch during the week. Even if all of the concerts of this series are organized for the Faubourg des Récollets’ employers, employees and residents, everyone is invited to make themselves at home in this urban oasis. Wednesdays and Fridays, come on down and see what the vibrant musical schedule has to offer you during these 12 weeks.
