In June and July, we run into a problem here in Montreal: there’s just too much to do. Choices must be made – and the more things you like, the more difficult it becomes to choose! I’m sure you understand what I’m talking about.
If you are a music lover and your choice is the FrancoFolies then you are in for a 10 days treat.
For those of you who are not familiar with this festival, Les FrancoFolies de Montréal is a large annual music and performance festival held in the heart of Montreal featuring over 1,000 French-language performers from all over the world, as well as attracting over 500,000 visitors. Many of the performances are free to the public and are held on various stages in the downtown area. Other performances are held at nearby theaters and require that tickets to be purchased to attend.
