La Fin du Jazz
The End of Jazz
It shows how much people love music when people can still attend a concert after there has already been 12 days of them (and not a single performance was unattended). Even after those 12 days of concerts and unpredictable weather, the 13th day ended with Ben Harper‘s double-encore concert, which completely filled the block surrounding the main stage.
The great thing (and not-so-great thing for jazz lovers) about the Montréal Jazz Festival, is that it features many different artists, from many different styles of music. The festival featured: numerous well-knowns such as Ben Harper, Stevie Wonder, Estelle, and Mos Def, Canadian artists such as Divine Brown and Lily Frost, local/Québec artists such as the young Montréaler Nikki Yanofsky, and many many many more.
You can definitely expect a line-up at least as impressive at this one for next year’s festival, too!
Until next year,
