Published Oct 21, 2009Montreal will once again be the indie rock place to be, when the city hosts the fourth annual M for Montreal festival on November 19-21.
Bands will include Fucked Up, You Say Party! We Say Die!, Miracle Fortress, the Rural Alberta Advantage, Melissa Auf der Maur, DD/MM/YYYY, Silly Kissers and a host of others. Also part of the show will be two showcases presented by, well, us.
The two Exclaim! shows will take place on November 19 and 20 at le Cabaret Juste pour Rire in Montreal. The full line-ups are listed below and will include the always-tempting "special guests."
M for Montreal was founded by Glastonbury Festival programmer Martin Elbourne and Sébastien Nasra of Avalanche Productions. Last year's festival was a raging success and included 15 Montreal bands, including Winter Gloves, Duchess Says, Beast, Pas Chic Chic, Radio Radio, Chinatown and the National Parcs.
This year a total of 17 acts will perform over three nights and a wide range of industry delegates will gather at the festival.
Tickets for M for Montreal go on sale today (October 21) and are available now on the festival's website.
