WIN tickets to a show at Victoriaville’s FIMAV festival on May 16

We’re giving away 4 pairs of tickets to see Richard Pinhas, Keiji Haino, Merzbow and Tatsuya Yoshida next Friday in Victoriaville, QC. Details inside.


That’s right, the world-renowned avant-garde music festival in Victoriaville, a couple of hours southeast of Montreal, is coming up next weekend, May 15–18 (see our highlights here), and we’ve got four pairs of tickets to one of the Friday-night shows to give away.

The bill for this show is pretty stacked: French guitarist/electronics experimenter Richard Pinhas and three heavy hitters from Japan: guitarist Keiji Haino, noise artist Merzbow and drummer/composer Tatsuya Yoshida. They play at Colisée A (400 Jutras E.) on Friday, May 16 at 10 p.m.

To enter the contest, please email by Monday, May 12 at 12 p.m., with the word “FIMAV” in the subject line. We will select four winners at random. Please note that the festival takes place in Victoriaville, and you would have to provide your own transportation and accommodation — for more info, go to the festival’s website. Good luck! ■
