Presented by YES Employment + Entrepreneurship, a non-profit that provides English-language support services to Quebec job seekers, entrepreneurs, and artists, What The Pop! will highlight more than 50 emerging artists over the course of a month.
The best part is all proceeds go directly to the artists, each having had sales and marketing training before the event so they can make the most of it. Pretty amazing considering the year these artists have had!
Admission is free, and the chance to see these spectacular artists doing what they love best is absolutely priceless.

Why You Need To Go: Support local artists at one of the coolest events of the summer.
Montreal's renowned Italian Week, now known as ItalfestMTL, is just around the corner and it's bringing back in-person festivities.
This year marks the 28th edition of the popular festival and will bring all the best food and music from local Italian culture for three weeks of events.
"After last year's innovative shift to virtual, we intend to have an open mind by confirming online programming broadcast on our website and social networks," Antonio Sciascia, President of italfestMTL, said in a press release.
"Nevertheless, we will offer events on the ground so that our festival-goers can share the joy of being together, even if in a reduced way."
In addition to virtual concerts and comedy shows, ItalfestMTL invites people to in-person activities while respecting the health measures.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry.
