Over the years, the MEG Festival has positioned itself as the festival that prescribes the next generation of electro and hip-hop artists and has set itself the mission of bringing together a curious and open audience of night owls, proudly representing Canadian music and building strong bridges with the United States and Europe.
In partnership with Musicaction, OFQJ/ Consulate General of France in Quebec – Montreal Office and with the support of the Quebec Office in Seoul, the city of Montreal will once again be vibrating to the sounds of MEG for this 21st edition, which promises to be full of discoveries, meetings and festivities.
From August 30th to September 2nd, 2019, agents and managers, programmers, festival or label professionals, promoters, journalists and other key players in the industry are invited to meet through a series of concerts and networking activities tailored for professionals.
