Since 1989, Les FrancoFolies de Montréal has been the true reflection of a thriving French-speaking music world! Les Francos in Montreal means nearly 70 indoor shows and 180 free outdoor concerts which attest to the effervescent quality, diversity and energy of a music-rich, fun-filled program featuring the most diverse musical trends! It also means 1,000 songwriters, composers, musicians and performers from a dozen countries, a multitude of free open-air extravaganzas… and millions of little thrills along the way!
All this in the downtown heart of America's biggest French-speaking city on a safe, festive site reserved for pedestrians only, offering all possible amenities and non-stop entertainment. For an entire 10 days, Montrealers and tourists savour the best musical talents of the Frenchspeaking world. Let's tell it like it is: Montreal is the place to let loose! In short, much more than just a festival, this musical celebration is a veritable lifestyle!
