Call for applications


Over the years, the festival, a healthy prescription of up-and-coming electro, hip-hop, and pop rock artists has taken on the mandate of attracting a crowd of curious and open-minded night owls, of proudly representing Canadian music and bridging the distance with the US and Europe. The MEG was created in 1999 by Mustapha Terki and Jacques Primeau with this in mind. In 19 years, the Montreal festival has become an international meeting place ripe for the convergence of all urban styles, as you can see by the non-exhaustive list of past participants who attended when they were still flying under the radar : Groenland (2012), Suuns (2014), Tiga (2005), Dead Obies (2013), Robert Robert (2016), M83 (2002), Le Tigre (2004), Justice (2005), Santigold et M.I.A. (2007).


For his 20th edition which will take place from August 30 to September 2, the MEG festival is launching a call for applications to artists wishing to be part of 2018’s line-up. If you recognize yourself in these words and you want to make dance the public of MEG festival then don’t wait any more and transmit us your passion by submitting your realizations through this form !
