M for Montreal: Great Music, Local Artists
If you want a bird's eye view of who's who in Montreal's music scene, then do not miss M pour Montréal, aka M for Montreal.

Scouting local acts since 2006, M for Montreal proposes a series of outdoor concerts, large venue attractions and nightclub events every year, from June through November, which then culminates into one main event, a three or four-day music fest. In 2013, that would be from November 20 to November 23, 2013 featuring 100 performances by local as well as Canadian and international artists.

M for Montreal: M on the Road
Every year, a musical envoy is sent out to a different location or two. Austin, Texas and New York City were the sites of choice in years past and as per the fest custom, M for Montreal shares a top food export to go with the show: free doses of poutine for everyone.
