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…
