The one and only Ms. Lauryn Hill will be back in the Montreal area this fall at the inaugural LVL UP festival.
Ms. Hill performed at last year's Jazzfest celebrating the 20th anniversary of her critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and it was heralded as the must-see show. And for those that can't believe it's already been two decades, I'm right there with you.
The queen of hip-hop, soul and R&B will be at Place Bell in Laval September 21st.
The LVL UP Urban Music and Digital Arts Lab is unique in Quebec, it's not focused solely on being an urban music festival but also honoring digital and visual arts as well as educating and implementing workshops in local high schools.
And they are doing it in style. Following Ms. Hill's performance will be reggae superstar J Balvin on September 22.
Even if you can't afford a ticket this year, there are a host of free performances on the Quadrilatère Montmorency grounds just outside of Place Bell. The event runs all weekend and features performers like High Klassified, Rymz, Koriass, Fouki, and Tizzo. And that's just to name a few!
If you're a die-hard Lauryn Hill fan (and really, who isn't), tickets go on sale for her concert July 19 at 10 AM. It's a chance to see the 11 time Emmy-nominated musician in her element.
The event starts Thursday the 19th and runs through to Sunday the 22nd.
