Everyone in Montreal knows that we have a killer music scene. We’re home to some of North America’s major music festivals, from Osheaga to the Jazz Fest, and there’s never any shortage of shows throughout the year.

Now we’re getting some more global recognition. Sonicbids, a Boston based music blog, has ranked Montreal #6 on their list of the top 10 cities in North America whose music scenes are exploding right now.

Not only has Montreal produced some extremely successful indie-rock bands, like Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade, but their EDM scene is also top-notch. Adventure Club, A Track, Lunice, Grimes and Chromeo all got their start in the 514.

With Toronto coming in at #2 on the list, Canada seems to be holding their own when it comes to the music scene. To see the full list of rankings, click here.
