Hosted by the incomparable Pascal-Angelo Fioramore

The Festival’s Open Mics have been presented at the Casa de Popolo since 2005! It is an open stage where everything is possible. Throughout the years we have seen everything imaginable and several artists made there debut there. It is a an excellent way to make oneself known… also among us. Our artistic director will be present (almost) every evening. In this convivial, delinquent and relaxed atmosphere, anyone who dares to take the plunge is welcomed in a spirit of solidarity and respect.

You have 5 minutes to display your talents. Texts, performances, songs, in French, in English, or any other language, everything is permitted. But, take note: you must perform your own work. Also, you will work in collaboration with Montreal’s best musical improvisers: Guido Del Fabbro, Bernard Falaise and Michel F Côté. They may follow you… everywhere.

Advance registration via email at or at the venue as of 10 PM for each evening’s show. Get there early, places are limited.
