Photo cred -
Alright Montreal, are you ready for one helluva week end? One festival ends and there goes another one that begins. Grand Prix was great but now MURAL fest, Beer fest and the FIFA world cup saga are taking over. Don't you worry fellow Montrealers, every hot spot you should be at we got them covered. Here's what's hot this week end.
Thursday, June 12th
The FIFA World Cup started and you cannot miss out on it. Even if you don't like soccer, just go for the ambiance and celebration of the World Cup at Rosalie.
Then, you can pass by the beer fest, Mondial de la Bière at The Palais des Congrès de Montreal and have a beer if your team won, or have a cold one to ease the pain if your team lost!
You definitely want to go on the Maine and check out the MURAL fest that will be on going until Sunday. Plus, there's the Block Party presented by MEG & MURAL. Oh, and if you party outdoors during winter for Igloofest, you can definitely party in the rain. No excuses people!
You can continue the party with MURAL's Opening party at The SAT. Go celebrate with MURAL'S team to the sounds of Dusky, Jay London and Zubi.

As the MURAL fest is taking over the city this week, you can expect a lot of MURAL parties. Here's another one for you MURAL's Paint Jam at Le Belmont. This will definitely be a fun event with live body painting and music of all genres.
Here's another very interesting event you might want to check out; Le Marketfest Montreal at 3643 St. Laurent App.200. We say, interesting because there will be 3D printed installations, inteactive displays and last but not least, a DJ set by LUNICE.
