Montreal's Mile End Is Hosting A Night Block Party With Giant Projections & Fried Chicken

Montreal's Mile End skatepark is set to host a huge nighttime block party this September as part of MAPP_MTL's sixth edition.

The event, billed as "Montreal's projection mapping festival," is a celebration of digital art. The block party will feature monumental digital creations cast on the surrounding buildings, illuminating the skatepark as electronic music plays.

Local restaurant Nakamichi will be serving Japanese fried chicken and pastries over the course of the electric event.

In a press release, MAPP_MTL says there will also be a "small shopping area" showcasing local businesses.

Digital artworks will include work by artist Delphine Dussoubs (Dalkhafine) and minute-long projections by artists from Quebec and around the world, as well as what the festival describes as "works improvised by creators and members of the public [unfolding] in real-time."
