If there's one thing Montreal does right — besides poutine — it's festivals. And since so many had to be cancelled last summer, the ones we know and love are coming back stronger than ever, like Montreal's MURAL Festival.
MURAL just released its lineup and Montrealers are going to be blessed with free concerts from some big names in August.
The biggest name? DVSN, the well-known R&B duo from Toronto.
Other musical artists that will be performing for the 2021 edition of MURAL include Coeur de Pirate, Night Lovell, Skiifall, High Klassified, Robert Robert, Sarahmée, Hologramme, Pierre Kwenders (DJ set), Eman, Lou Phelps, San Farafina, Naomi, Mon Doux Saigneur, Jamaz, and JAM.
And if you're going to MURAL more for the visual art, you'll be able to see works by June Barry, BirdO, Michelle Hoogveld, Drew Young, Teddy Kelly, Francorama, Marie-Pier Primeau, Zoë Gelfant, Julian Palma, Garbage Beauty, Cryote, Waxhead, Zoltan, Iregular, Samuel Arsenault-Brassard, and others.
When: August 12–22, 2021
Where: Boulevard Saint-Laurent between rue Sherbrooke and avenue Mont-Royal
Why You Need To Go: For an experience that is oh-so-Montreal.
