Project 365 – Day 179: Preview of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal site

Montreal in Pictures

June 27 2012

With the 33rd edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal kicking off tomorrow, I took a quick walk around the site before the hoards of music lovers arrive. Situated downtown at the Quartier des Spectacles the event is a huge tourist attraction for the city and runs from tomorrow through to July 7.

I plan checking out a few shows during the festival, so expect to see one or more concert posts over the next 10 days – Perhaps starting tomorrow when Rufus Wainwright will take the stage for the grand opening show.

With over 3,000 artists and 1,000 concerts there’s a lot to choose from. Although a lot of the big names are inside and ticket events, with 5 stages around the Quartier des Spectacles about 2/3rds of the acts are free!!

The following images hopefully give a little taste of the festival site…
