This weekend, the Métro Métro concert will take over the Montreal Olympic Park Esplanade. Between the 18th and 19th of May, 34 artists will take to the stage for the inaugural edition of the event.
As a result, famous artists will begin pouring into Montreal in the coming days. If they decide to venture beyond their hotels and the Olympic Park to partake in Montreal's famous food scene or nightlife, you may be lucky enough to spot them!
Métro Métro headliners Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, and Future represent perhaps the most exciting prospects for a chance enounter in the city streets and venues. Snoop Dogg, in particular, has a well-documented love for Canada and may be looking to capitalize on his visit.
Last year, the rapper expressed a desire to move to Canada and become a Canadian citizen. His hatred of Trump, likely combined with an interest in legal recreational marijuana, has kindled a new appreciation for the great white north.
Cardi B, too, has been a vocal critic of president Trump. Maybe her visit to Montreal this weekend will inspire a similar love for Canada. Her chill attitude and casual hilarity will fit right in in Montreal.
Other big names coming to Montreal this weekend include Ludacris, A$AP Ferg, Sean Paul, and Tyga. Waka Flocka Flame, Saweetie, Rich the Kid, Juice WRLD, and GASHI will also take to the stage.
Métro Métro organizers have posted the full lineup of the two-day event to Instagram:
If this impressive lineup isn't enough to draw you to Métro Métro, the concert is also permitting the consumption of cannabis under certain conditions, reports Narcity Québec. Maybe Snoop Dogg will be bold enough to smoke there, too.
Snoop Dogg has also confirmed on his Instagram page that he will make an appearance at the Montreal club Joverse on May 18th.
