May 11, 2017  Since 1989, lovers of francophone music from around the world have made the FrancoFolies de Montréal a not-to-be-missed annual event. Set to take over the Place des Festivals in the Quartier des spectacles this June 8 to 18, the event promises to uphold its international reputation with panache once again this year!

With each passing year, this vibrant festival keeps audiophiles on their toes with their ears attuned to innovative programming. Here, masters of the great French chanson tradition harmoniously combine with talented emerging artists, all the while integrating a series of unique musical activities with a good dose of exotic flair.

Over the years, the FrancoFolies has gradually established itself as one of the most dynamic and recognized windows onto the world of francophone music. It’s not surprising, considering a program that includes over 250 shows – three-quarters of which are outdoors and completely free – that bring together some 1,000 artists and close to a million spectators. There’s nothing else like it in North America!
