Just because your summer is winding down doesn’t mean festival season has to, with Red Bull announcing the first-ever Red Bull Music Festival Montréal. Running from September 19th to the 27th, each night of Red Bull Music Festival Montréal promises a unique experience, expertly curated to make sure no two shows are the same. From a ten-year birthday bash for Arbutus Records featuring the likes of Blue Hawaii, TOPS, and Sean Nicholas Savage, to the Canadian debut of Oneohtrix Point Never’s “intersection of theater, installation art and musical performance”, MYRIAD, Red Bull Music Festival Montréal is the perfect way to say goodbye to the summer.
Red Bull’s Music Festival series has popped up everywhere around the globe, from Paris to São Paolo, each installment united by the mission of “shining a light on the sounds, scenes and minds moving music forward.” Aside from Oneohtrix Point Never and Arbutus’ friends, Montréalers have even more to look forward to: Ryan Hemsworth performing his new album ELSEWHERE a day after its release, a team-up of Canadian experimental heavyweights Kara-Lis Coverdale, Alex Zhang Hungtai, and Sarah Davachi, along with all-local R&B showcase 463 Carats – with this craziness all capped off with a SOPHIE show, co-presented with POP Montreal.
