MEG Boat

MEG boat!


The MEG music festival is nearly here. It begins on Thursday, July 23 and runs through Aug. 2. If you’ve never attended MEG, it’s a great opportunity to check out rising bands and DJs from Quebec, France and beyond in intimate venues like Divan Orange and le Belmont, and to party hard at MEG’s mega boat-party.

Among the acts playing MEG this year are Secret Secret Girl, High Klassified, Melt MTL, Human Human, Fonkyson, DJ YesMcCan, Sylvia Cloutier, le Couleur, Buck Smith and Tomas Furey. Check out the full program here, and see our MEG festival primer (feat. 10 music videos by bands & DJs playing MEG 2015) here.

MEG has passed along one ticket (guest list spot) to every single MEG show (including the MEG boat on July 25 but excluding the MEG edition of Piknic Électronik on July 26), and we’re going to choose one very lucky winner at random between 4 and 5 p.m. this Wednesday, July 22. Simply email with “MEG festival 2015” in the subject line and we will respond if you’ve won.

Here are event pages for all the shows:


Good luck! ■
