MEG Montreal

21st edition

A flagship event, MEG has positioned itself over the years as a trendsetting festival for upcoming hip-hop and electronic music, uniting curious and open-minded music lovers while proudly representing Canadian music and connecting North America to Europe. In addition to its resolutely eclectic musical programming, The MEG festival will feature a series of professional talks under the MEG PRO banner, with this year’s events focusing on music industry career development in Asia and Europe.

4 days of partying and music to celebrate the back-to-school season
Hip-hop, pop, disco, electro and techno: once again this year, MEG will explore these musical landscapes, which have been near and dear to its heart for over 20 years. Personal favourites, new discoveries and heavy hitters from near and far will cross paths over the course of events on the Piknic Électronik site and 5 concerts at the SAT.

Starting Friday August 30th, Parc Jean-Drapeau will feature headline sets by American house duo Mood II Swing for the official launch party, followed by Rone [FR] and Stereoclip [BE]’s powerful melodies and Montreal techno queen Misstress Barbara [QC] – sounds that will have you on the outdoor dance floor each and every day of the festival! When night falls, France’s princes of Parisian rap Ärsenik will open the proceedings at the SAT. Also on the line-up for this 21st edition, the Roche Musique [FR] label with Dabeull and rising stars Cezaire and Duñe, rising techno star AIROD [FR], signed to Amélie Lens’ LENSKE label, the always energetic Salut C’est Cool [FR], the gorgeous pop of Miel De Montagne [FR], and suave disco from Eli Escobar [US] as part of an evening designed alongside Disco Disco [FR]. To close things out in the open air on Monday at Piknic, we’ll hear new sounds courtesy of Bon Entendeur [FR] and Bellaire [FR], but also DJRum [UK]’s unique take on dubstep.
