​Montreal Venue Divan Orange to Close Next Year
Montreal music venue Divan Orange has announced plans to shutter its doors by next spring.
In a statement via Urbania (translated by Google), the venue cited its "untenable" financial situation as the reason for closure.
The message also outlined previous attempts to rescue the business, including internal evaluations and reaching out to political players, but ultimately the venue concluded that it had run out of time and resources.
The venue's financial struggle became apparent a few years back, when they launched a fundraising campaign to help pay off noise complaint fines.
The Divan Orange team estimated that more than 10,000 acts have graced their stage since opening 13 years ago, and prided themselves on creating a "unique, authentic, accessible" space to foster experimentation and success for a wide range of artists.
A final date has yet to be announced for Divan Orange's closure, but you can track the remaining upcoming events here.
