June 28 - July 8 2007
The International Jazz Festival of Montreal, with 25 years of success and an ever-increasing turnout, is nowadays one of the largest jazz festivals in the world, if not the largest. The festival, held every summer in the vibrant city of Montreal, Canada, offers an exciting programme of more than 500 shows, of which 350 are free and open-air. Every summer more than 2000 musicians, not only from Canada but all over the world, and over 1.5 million spectactors come to the event.
Montreal itself, an internationally-renowned bilingual city, is worth visiting for its intellectual and cultural vitality. Cosmopolitan and multicultural, it is a favourite city for hosting global events. This year's festival, the 28th in its history, will be held from June 28 until July 8 and will feature artists such as Bob Dylan, Manu Chao, Keith Jarrett, Cesaria Evora and Wynton Marsalis. There is no better time to discover Montreal and its contagious festival atmosphere.
