Name Swing with the Stars at the Montreal Jazz Festival

Miles, Ella, Diana, Ray and Aretha... They've all played here. Classic, modern and upcoming artists showcase their stuff. Come and get your jitterbug on at one of the many stages and streets throughout Montreal.

For 30 years, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has hosted an impressive array of musicians from all horizons – seasoned jazz players, well known DJs, impassioned bluesmen and high-spirited rockers.

It is typically attended by over 2 million people who are attracted by the electric atmosphere, diversity of shows and by the city itself. Many parts of the city's downtown core are closed to traffic for ten days as outdoor shows are free to the public and on many stages at the same time, from noon till midnight. Attendance to some shows is over 100,000 and sometimes over 200,000.

Shows are held in a wide variety of venues, from relatively small jazz clubs to the large halls of Place des Arts. Some of the outdoor shows are held on cordoned-off streets while others are on terraced parks. Typically there are well over 500 concerts offered during the span of 10 days, from noon to midnight, about 350 of which are outdoors and free to the public.
