Montreal has always been known for its unique party scene, which includes some of the best nightclubs in the world. In those nightclubs, the person who keeps us dancing all night is not alcohol, but the DJ. And we are blessed to have some pretty sick local Montreal DJs in the city's music scene. Luckily for us, we can listen to some of them from our homes to keep both our spirits and the party alive.
From underground DJs to mainstream sounds, our city has got you covered with locals to listen to.
Music can do wonders for your mental health and spiritual strength. And living in a city with so many talented DJs, it is easy to find some epic mixes to listen to during this time. Some DJs have even gone to their social media to do live sets and dance parties which is really what we all need right now.
You may be missing the club but that doesn't mean you can't turn your apartment into the hottest spot in the city. Put on a cute outfit, pour yourself a drink and get on Facetime with your friends while having a dance party to remember.
We all need to make the most out of this situation and these DJs and their talent will help us do just that.
