1. Snag tickets to Montreal’s frenzy of summer festivals
Montreal hosts so many music festivals they actually overlap in a summer-long symphony. Rock, electronic, reggae, chamber music, folk and African music are showcased, and Osheaga’s live band extravaganza and the long-running International Jazz Festival are, of course, legendary. In amongst the music festivals, you also have Just for Laughs—the biggest comedy festival on the planet, and the annual International Fireworks Competition that attracts competitors from all corners of the globe. Oh, and there are film festivals and theatre festivals, too. Exhausted already? Catch your breath—we’re just getting started!
