Divers/Cité is on a mission to spread art, music, and diversity through Montreal’s Old Port. The 2014 edition will take place July 28 to August 3 set against the dreamy skyline of the city…
The festival has made some big changes in recent years, and 2014 is no different. While world-class music and dancing is still on the menu, the festival is expanding both indoor and outdoor programming. Along with the main events on Jacques Cartier Quay, Divers/Cité is adding the Bonsecours Island to their turf with a brand new stage.
Outdoor Events: The Jacques Cartier Quay will be hosting FLEXX on July 31, FLEXX is an ode to dance featuring choreographed performances from local and international dancers. Then the beats of renowned DJ’s take the stage for the remainder of the weekend starting with Vendredi Tribal on August 1, Sunset Party on August 2, and the famous finale of La Grande Danse on August 3.
The new stage on Bonsecours Island will host the first ever Viva Montreal / Viva L’Amour on August 2. It’ll be a musical cabaret extravaganza featuring the best drag queens, singers, dancers, and DJs that Montreal’s vibrant artistic community has to offer. The next summer island night will be D/C Drums. Put on your carnival attire, dancing shoes, and get ready to jam to to Latin and World Beat music.
Indoor Events: D/C Rire on July 30 will transform the Old Port into a comedy club by showcasing local stand-up artists. D/C Drama on August 1 is an all-new indoor party held in tribute to Montreal’s nightlife. Lesbomond Reunion is a collaborative effort with Divers/Cité and local lesbian groups to host a party just for the ladies on August 2. The big D/C Ball afterhours party will end the Divers/Cité festivities on August 3, 2014. (All indoor location to be announced shortly on diverscite.org)
