After its month long hiatus, Hip Hop Karaoke is back by popular demand. On Thursday night, join us at Le Belmont to celebrate Hip Hop Karaoke's one year anniversary! If you've never been to an HHK event, you're missing out! The event, which first originated in New York, provides Montrealers with a chance to participate in a truly unique cultural experience.
Every month, HHK invites Montrealers to get on stage and pay respect to their favorite rap icons by performing their most popular tracks in a karaoke setting, except lyrics are prohibited!
Over the past year, HHK Montreal has evolved into one of the most energy packed and entertaining events. This summer, the event collaborated with the notable Just For Laughs Festival. In its celebration, HHK Montreal has introduced catering to the event, as well as trivia segments with live giveaways and awesome prizes.
In order to share its one year anniversary celebration with the community, HHK is holding a toque drive. For each hat purchased, 5 more will be donated to the Sun Youth organization, which provides various services and programs to seniors, youth, low income families and those with special needs.
The stylish toque represents the HHK slogan: "Are Your Ready to Become a Legend?", which symbolizes the importance and goal of giving people the opportunity to showcase their love of hip hop through creative means. Help spread the warmth this Winter and be sure to get your toques herewhere they'll be available year round.

It's a great place for a dinner date and also a night out with drinks since it turns into a hip bar/club after dinner service to make your anniversary 514% better!

If you thought summer festivals were over, well think again! Not only is there going to be another festival in Montreal before summer ends, but it happens to be one of the most artistic festivals in all of Montreal.
This festival isn't only dedicated to electro music, is also features combining musical disciplines, visual arts, and circus arts for the ultimate experience! The bet part about this festival is that is is located in the heart of Old Montreal at the Clock Tower (Quai de l’Horloge) and tickets are pretty damn cheap.via @ancientfuturefest
Have you guessed which festival it is yet? Well, it's the 3rd edition of the Ancient Future Festival by La Bacchanale! They feature both local and international artists and this year is going to be LIT since the master of electro Fritz Kalkbrenner from Berlin is on the line-up!
The Ancient Future Festival will feature the hottestelectronic music, visual arts and the most extravagant performances that will blow your mind. It will take place on September 8 and 9, 2017 at the Quai de l'Horloge and at Hangar 16 in the Old Port and tickets are either $28 for the day or $55 both the whole day.
All artists are from the house and techno electronic scenes so you can expect nothing less than great music and a fabulous time! This year, the line-up will feature Kevin Saunderson, Étienne de Crécy, Omar Souleyman, Victor Ruiz, Eagles & Butterflies, Mall Grab, Johnny Trika, Mad Rey and Folamour, Project Pablo, Atroxx, Rico Shae, Kris Tin, Nymra & Sofisticated, Zepha, Obolète Collective and TGV.
In addition, for its 3rd edition, the festival adds a trip-hop and hip-hop component to its programming. Brooklyn's hip-hop duo The Underachievers will present their latest Renaissance opus, accompanied by Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke, local rising star Brown, and Kgoon, Grandbuda and Zeina.
The best thing is that this festival is conscious of minimizing its impact on the environment. This is why an eco-responsible system is put in place from the conception to the dismantling of the festival.
Who else is still f*cken HYPED from Kendrick Lamar's concert last night? I KNOW I AM. It was legit fire AF and Kendrick Lamar KILLED it but that's no surprise. Unfortunately, if you didn't get a chance to see him, then I must say you did miss out on a sick concert.
