ABOUT M FOR MONTRÉAL
Founded in 2006 by Sébastien Nasra (Avalanche Productions), in collaboration with the legendary British festival programmer Martin Elbourne (Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape and co-founder along with Peter Gabriel of the WOMAD Festival), M for Montreal is much more than an annual event. “M” is an independent organization whose ambitious mission is to help up-and-coming artists both to become better known locally and to launch their careers outside Canada. For the last nine years, M for Montreal has carved out an enviable reputation at the heart of Montréal’s cultural life, and now occupies an undeniable role as a catalyst for the local industry, both for emerging local artists and those who are developing their careers outside Québec.
M FOR MONTRÉAL AT NORTH BY NORTHEAST returns in 2015! The annual M for 159 Manning showcase will take place on Friday, June 19th – featuring The Muscadettes, Pat Jordache, Dead Obies and 13 other acts on two stages between 1pm and midnight. Throughout the day music fans can enjoy pizza courtesy of Panago Pizza’s #RandomActsOfPizza, along with veggie burgers hot off the barbecue. See the full 159 Manning lineup below.
Panache Booking and M for Montreal are once again teaming up to present the 5th annual Bruise Cruise on June 20th. Captain Matthew Flinders of Mariposa Cruises will weigh the anchor at 1PM and sail to the sound of PONCTUATION, DEAD OBIES, MICHAEL RAULT, CRi (DJ Set) and surprise guest. Arrive early as space is limited!
