Montreal Jazz Fest 2021

Montreal Jazz Fest to take place Sept. 15–19 “under more normal conditions”

Both the Jazz Fest and les Francos have been postponed till September.

Following last year’s digital pivot, the 2021 edition of the Montreal Jazz Fest will take place in September, from Sept. 15–19. This postponement from the usual timing in June will allow the Jazz Fest — as well as les Francos, which Spectra has also postponed till September — to occur “under more normal conditions” according to Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante. The month of September is when the federal government promised every Canadian who wants a vaccine will have been vaccinated.

“In my opinion, this decision will allow these two essential festivals to be held under more normal conditions. You can count on my support.”
