The M for Montreal mission, should you choose to accept it, is to show off the finest of Montreal and Canadian talent to international music industry players. What’s in it for you, you ask? Well, you selfish little thing, there’s going be awesome shows going on from November 19th to 21st, and you get the chance to see some fabulous bands before they blow the fuck up!

M for Montreal focuses on pushing “export-ready” bands that are ready to do their thing on a wider scale by inviting journalists, music festival managers and music buyers to come experience Montreal music, arts and nightlife. Previous M for Montreal acts have included The Sam Roberts Band, The Stills, Plants and Animals, Thunderheist and Patrick Watson.

Big name acts this year include the Polaris Prize-winning Toronto band Fucked Up, Hole/Smashing Pumpkins member Melissa Auf der Maur, and francophone indie-rock group Malajube.
