From Tuesday August 24 to Sunday August 29
Parterre du Quartier des spectacles - Free
This edition marks the return of the Expérience series, presented on an outdoor stage from August 24 to 29. Celebrating the plurality of electronic music, the series will be accessible free of charge with a simple on-site registration that respects health measures. On the program is a joyful and festive outdoor celebration that includes 25 live performances and DJ sets that explore the nuances of electronic music: from ambient with Echönymphia and YlangYlang to techno with Debbie Doe and OJPB, and house with G L O W Z I and Gene Tellem.
Instruments and special guests will animate several performances: Poirier, accompanied by musicians for a hybrid set of his latest album, MAYSUN, will be in duo with his drums, as well as the improvisation-loving sextet, Presqu'île.
Along with loyal Festival artists such as Claire & Alicia Hush and vigliensoni, several emerging talents from local artistic communities, such as Bénédicte, Ellxandra, and RONY — noticed by none other than Tim Hecker — will bring an inspiring breath of fresh air to energize the last days of summer.
Finally, to conclude each evening, an artist from the indoor programming will offer a DJ set of his/her/their best productions and original compositions: Montrealers Ouri, Martyn Bootyspoon and Jump Source (Priori & Patrick Holland) will be joined by Toronto's Ciel and Vancouver’s Yu Su.
