Divers/Cite celebrates again in Montreal’s Old Port

Posted on July 15th, 2013 by .


Divers/Cité 2013 will be heating up Montreal’s Old Port with an expanded presence for the 21st edition, July 29 to August 4, 2013…

Divers/Cité is an LGBT festival that invites people from all walks of life to enjoy dance, music, culture and diversity every summer with a spectacular array of performances and events. Divers/Cité will not only be returning to Quai Jacques-Cartier in the Old Port, but will be spilling over into the tranquil Bassin Bonsecours Island, and even Clock Tower Beach! The new Divers/Cité will top itself as the one the best summer festivals in Montréal.


The two iconic Divers/Cité raves Sunset Party (August 3) and La Grande Danse (August 4) will also be going above and beyond this year with a roster of world-renowned house music DJs like David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Hector Romero, DJ Memê, CHUS + CHEBALLOS, David Penn, Patrick M and Nicola Terriero. And North America’s largest drag show, Mascara (August 3) will be putting on its 16th edition with the mistress of ceremonies and creator, Mado Lamotte. The evening will be a massive event of Broadway, Vegas, and Bollywood inspired performances from Drag legends and new-comers.


Unlike previous years, Divers/Cité won’t be entirely free this year. Each major event like Sunset Party, La Grande Danse and Mascara will be $15 each with tickets available at the entrance. However if you become a “Friend of the Festival” for $15 you will get a wrist band with entrance to all events plus some exclusive parties. Limited quantities of these wristbands are available, so stay tuned for details!
