Coinciding with this year’s Highlights Festival, the 6th annual Montreal New Music Festival will be taking place from Thursday, February 21 to Sunday, March 3. While many events at the festival are subject to admission fees, the festival has opened a free New Music Lounge in the center of Place Des Arts.
The New Music Lounge will be open from February 21 through March 1 (except for the 27th & 28th) and offers visitors “happenings, concerts, live creations, sound games, listening stations, videos…”
You’ll be able to play with the “Musicolateur” – an original instrument designed to make composition easy, to watch the creative process of artists who have brought their studios into the lounge, to use your smart phone to interact with a unique digital art experience, and more.
Considering that all the activities of the Highlights Festival will be taking place right outside of Place Des Arts, a visit to the Music Lounge will make for a fun and creative diversion.
Place des Arts is at 175 St. Catherine Street W, metro PLace des Arts.
