For the second year in a row, Festival Square will be banned from Francos and a jazz festival in early summer. The Spectra team announced this morning that the two festivals will be presented instead in September, in hopes that things will improve regarding the pandemic crisis.
If all goes well, the Francos de Montreal will now take place from September 9-12, still in Festival Square. The Montreal International Jazz Festival will then take place from September 15-19.
“We can’t wait to see the microphones hook up, the lights are on on stage, the musicians play, the singers sing. We can’t wait to get the music back on the Quartier deslasses, and above all, we can’t wait to see the crowd’s big smiles!” Said this in a Laurent Saulnier press release, Vice President of Programming, Cultural Events and Festivals for L’Équipe Spectra.
“Of course, we will closely follow the development of the health situation, and our festivals will be displayed in accordance with the instructions and recommendations issued by the public health, in the interest of the safety of festival-goers, artists and visitors. Employees.”
The organization says it is working to develop digital and external programming “if the situation permits.”
