After two successful years of sold-out concerts, featuring emerging artists and taking place in iconic Montreal venues, M For Montreal‘s public-facing MARATHON festival has announced its return this fall. With a lineup boasting more than 100 artists, including both up-and-coming Montreal natives and international emerging talents, the event offers the perfect remedy for your post-summer blues.

MARATHON has unveiled a schedule of five concerts spread across Montreal, scheduled from November 15 to 18. Kicking off at Club Soda, the festival will showcase some of the finest emerging indie artists including Super Plage, R&B sensation Hawa B, and rap collective LaF. 

The following day, Club Soda will host rock trio zouz and the iconoclast VioleTT Pi, who will be joined by Calgary’s art-rock road warriors, 36?. Moving up to the vibrant Mile End neighbourhood on November 17 and 18, the Fairmount Theatre will host performances by Afternoon Bike Ride, Robert Robert, Marie Davidson, artist Nadah El Shazly, and DJ Ouri. 

To conclude the weekend on a truly high note, MARATHON Festival has joined forces with La maison fauve to co-present the much-anticipated Philippe Brach concert at MTelus.
