The annual Montreal Black & Blue Festival is one of the world’s great parties.
What started back in 1991 as a simple fundraiser for HIV/AIDS related charities has become a full-fledged 7-day social, cultural, sports and party event that attracts thousands of people from around the globe to Montreal.
This year is the 20th anniversary of Black & Blue, and the organizational team (Bad Boys Club) is sparing no expense in throwing a grand shindig. The best DJs from Chicago, Australia, Holland, Egypt and beyond will be descending on Montreal from October 6 – 12.
But, you ask, is this party for me? Well thankfully I’ve created a highly scientific one-question quiz to see if this party is for you.
Which of the follow appeal to you?
a) Cutting edge House or Trance music
b) Stunning live performance art
c) Sexy bodies from all over the world
d) All of the above
If you circled a, b, c or d, you’re going to want to get your arse to Montreal for this unique festival.
Here’s a sample of the action…
