Can you feel the Montreal energy picking up slowly but surely? Well, you're about to feel it a whole lot more now that summer is coming. Luckily, Montreal summer comes with many festivals where you can get your groove on, including the Montreal Jazz Festival. The esteemed Montreal music event is an annual fave, and the 2022 lineup just dropped.

The Montreal International Jazz Festival officially released this summer's upcoming artists and performances, and it's bound to be a festival to remember with such a star-studded lineup.

"Jazz is back!" The Montreal Jazz Fest said. "More than 350 concerts by artists all over the globe, 2/3 of which will be free, await you this summer. The menu will feature music legends, discoveries, diversity, experimentations as well as several shows created exclusively for the festival."

A few major names attached to the Jazz Fest include The Roots, Ludovico Einaudi, Tash Sultana, Kamasi Washington, Pink Martini, Woodkid, Marcus Miller, Corinne Bailey Rae, Joey Bada$, and Quebec's very own Alicia Moffet.

This marks the 42nd edition of the Festival, which is presented by TD Bank Group in collaboration with Rio Tinto and will run from June 30 to July 9 at the Quartier des Spectacles in Downtown, Montreal.

While many of the shows will be free, the Montreal Jazz Fest is currently holding a contest for a chance to win a VIP experience, which includes three nights at a hotel with a view of the festival and two accreditations to the VIP space of the TD stage.

Details regarding the contest can be found on the Montreal Jazz Fest Instagram page.

Good luck and go and get your jazz on!
