ABOUT M FOR MONTREAL: Founded in 2006 by Sébastien Nasra (Avalanche Productions), in collaboration with the legendary British festival programmer Martin Elbourne (Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape and co-founder along with Peter Gabriel of the WOMAD Festival), M for Montreal is much more than an annual event. “M” is a not-for-profit with an ambitious mission to showcase and promote emerging artists and open doors for them on international stages. Since 2006, M for Montreal has carved out an enviable reputation at the heart of Montréal’s cultural life, and now occupies an undeniable role as a catalyst for the local industry, both for emerging Canadian artists and those who are developing their careers at a global level.
