This page is also available in / Cette page est également disponible en: Francais (French)

2017 is a big year for Canada and for Montreal, and for La Scena Musicale magazine too! That’s why our 21st annual national Summer Festival Guide is all colour, glossy and in a bigger 3-column format with its own cover. The Guide is a supplement to  this June-July-August issue of La Scena, which came out on June 2, 2017 in separate English and French editions, doubling our normal distribution from 25,000 to 50,000 copies. This is Canada’s largest directory of summer arts and music festivals — classical music, jazz, world, folk, country, pop and rock music, theatre, dance, film, visual arts and competitions. Last year we listed over 400 festivals, and this year, we have over 500, proving that Canada is indeed the land of festivals.
