Listen up Montreal and surrounding areas! Something legendary is about to go down. Monkland Village Productions is doing something different this year, and we can tell you with certainty that you’ll want to be in attendance. So, let’s get to the good stuff.
Monkland Village Productions will be putting on a phenomenal and multi-faceted festival entitled Monkland Fest West. The festival will be taking over the Fairview parking lot in Pointe Claire for a unique and unforgettable festival experience. You can expect music, food trucks, restaurant vendors, merchants, and more. MVP will be partnering with Larry Day and his STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT team who are no strangers to a good time, so you just know it will be one for the books.
Monkland Fest West will be taking place on August 26th, but if you can’t wait that long (because we know we can’t), you’re in luck. The festivities will kick off on the night of Friday, August 25th with a performance from one of Rock & Roll’s finest acts, STYX! On Saturday you can mingle, drink, eat, and take in the live music stylings of REPLAY: The Beatles Tribute Band, Soul Brothers: A Tribute to the Blues Brothers, Hanorah, world-renowned concert pianist Mark Pinkus, and local phenomenon Shame Murphy. There will also be additional local acts, DJs, and more.
Not fired up yet? There will so be a VIP Charity Fight Tent that will be live broadcasting the Mayweather vs. McGregor Fight. All of the proceeds from the VIP Fight Tent will be given to local charities. Pretty cool, right? In fact, MVP has committed to donating a minimum of $20,000 to local charities such as the following: The West Island Women’s Shelter, The Miriam Foundation, and CURE SMA.
To break it down a little bit: from 5000-10,000 people will be in attendance, there will be 20 food trucks and restaurants, a massive main stage, a DJ stage, 4 bars, 30 vendors, and a few surprises as well.
The doors will be open on August 26th from 3:00pm-1:00am so prepare yourself for a long haul.
Here’s the best part: tickets are only $20 ($25 at the door). So, you in? Get you tickets now because they’re selling fast. To purchase yours, click here.
