Introducing QUEBEC SPRING, New Music From Montreal and Beyond

April 14th to May 13th 2023 - happening all over the UK

London, April 5th, 2023 - Little did we realize that each spring, musical artists from the great Francophone province of Québec (Canada) descend on the UK to play for British audiences. Home to legendary artists such as Leonard Cohen, Céline Dion, Oscar Peterson, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, its largest city, Montreal, has today become a world-renowned hotbed of musical creativity that nurtured the early careers of present-day high-profile award-winning artists such as Kaytranada, Grimes, Mac DeMarco, Patrick Watson and tUnE-yArds, and rising stars such as Half Moon Run, Basia Bulat and so many others.

With a music scene only growing stronger and more diverse than ever, the next wave of international hit-makers will be amongst us under the QUEBEC SPRING banner, between April 14th to May 13th, 2023 brought to you by premium music conference M for Montreal, the Quebec Government Office in London and SODEC.

Listen to music from Gayance, Bibi Club, Choses Sauvages, Fernie, Hanorah, Ivytide, Jonathan Roy, LAROIE, Laurence-Anne, Odreii, Vanille, and below, catch them at your local venues or at upcoming UK showcase festivals Wide Days, Liverpool Sound City, FOCUS Wales and The Great Escape.
