The explosion in Beirut this month may have happened in Lebanon, but its impact and magnitude were felt all over the world. The concert planned for Sunday, August 23 was originally going to be on Mount Royal, but will now be held indoors at ARTHEUM, where there'll be a night of music and unity for the people of Lebanon.* Like with so many tragedies, music becomes a form of therapy and expression and a way to bring people together when they need it most.\nFrom 2 p.m. until 7 p.m.*, you'll be able to see local bands, artists and DJs.\nEditor's Choice: Someone Left Watermelons & Strange Notes On A Bunch Of Montrealers' Doorsteps (VIDEO)\nNot only is the concert for a good cause, but it's a great way to support local talent, too.\nLive bands joining the docket will be Issa Karim, Sober Is Sexy Improv Band, Philipe Boily and Lea Keeley.\nThe DJ's who will be playing are Bleu Nuit, Nia and Anthony D'Urbano.\nAnd the local artists include La Poète, Rik Rozé, Jo Cloutier, Sandrine Décarie and Camilleski.\nThe concert is free, but a donation box will be passed around collecting donations for Beirut.\nTo take it one step further, the federal government has promised to match the donations from Sunday's event.\nThe concert is organized by Purple Passion Studio, a project "to encourage movement as the best healing and strengthening form of exercise."\nView this post on Instagram 📢 Local bands, artists and DJ’s will be performing this Sunday August 23rd from 12 PM to 6:30 PM at the Mont Royal park to help raise funds for Lebanon after the Beirut blast 🇱🇧 Event brought to you by @purplepassionstudios ⚠️They will be collecting donations in a beautiful donation box so if you wish to donate please bring some cash with you 🙏🏼✊🏼 . 👉🏼 SUPPORT LOCAL ARTISTS @niawanders @dragos_officiel @cameus_ @mrdurbano @thunderous.kid @keyylime @la_poete @jonathanc_art @camilleski.art @better.rick.ognize @ptitesandrine . #mtlforlebanon #strongertogether #supportlebanon A post shared by Montreal stands with Lebanon (@mtlforlebanon) on Aug 17, 2020 at 9:20am PDT\nPurple Passion has also collaborated for promotional efforts with @mtlforlebanon, a page dedicated to Montrealers looking to support the people of Lebanon, as well as to support the Lebanese community in the city.\n"We believe that there is no better way to raise consciousness and empathy than through art and music," Rania, co-owner of Purple Passion Studios told MTL Blog.\n"It connects us all and reminds us of our human essence, which is to love and create."\nView this post on Instagram A big thank you to everyone who spoke at our vigil today ❤️ Your speeches were very heartfelt and uplifting.
