VANCOUVER — M For Montreal is back for its 11th year this month, inviting 200 music industry professionals from more than 15 countries and showcasing 100+ artists over the course of the four-day festival.

Taking place November 16 to 19, M For Montreal was conceived as a way to reroute reputable names in the music industry back to the city that continues to foster emerging and creative talents, rather than having to rely solely on exporting them elsewhere for exposure.

Founded in 2006 by Sebastien Nasra (Avalanche Productions) and British festival programmer Martin Elbourne (Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape), the festival continues to expand its reach, inviting inquiring minds to drop in and take part in the city’s vibrant cultural landscape.

Some of this year’s performers include Canadian-American folk-rock royalty Martha Wainwright, Toronto’s hardcore soft boys Greys, Vancouver-Toronto based Cindy Lee, performing a modest and hazy brand of beautiful noise pop, Moonface (Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade), a Hot Chip DJ set, Michael Rault and more.

Dedicated to providing a platform for emerging artists to perform for new fans, media and industry, M for Montreal welcomes a plethora of local and international buzz-worthy acts and 200+ industry heavyweights from around the world each year. Over four days, Montreal transforms in to ground zero for music industry professionals and artists for exchanging ideas and generating solid opportunities for their businesses and careers to grow.

Wainwright kicks off the festivities on November 16 at the Rialto Theatre, presenting her brand new album Goodnight City, along with indie-pop act Groenland and Joe Grass opening the show. Upstairs at the Rialto Hall, audiences will experience the stirring melodies of John Jacob Magistery, along with promising newcomer Aliocha and moody songstress Wilsen.

There will be shows happening at all hours of the day at venues all throughout the city, proving Montreal remains to be one of Canada’s most consistent music and cultural hubs.
