Montreal 77 Festival has released the lineup for their 2018 event. This year’s lineup includes Rise Against, who has released a music video for “The Violence” and released Wolves, Suicidal Tendencies, who has released a music video for “Living For Life”, and Me First and The Gimmie Gimmies. As mentioned by THEPRP, the festival will be held at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, QC on July 27th.
The festival began in 1977 after Vans Warped Tour began fading away from Montreal, according to Montreal Gazette, and a void needed to be filled. The idea of the festival was to celebrate punk rock by Paget Williams, Nick Farkas, and Dan Webster. Previous artists that have performed are Iggy, The Ramones and the New York Dolls.
This year’s lineup includes Rise Against, Suicidal Tendencies, Me First and The Gimme Gimmes, Steve Ignorant with Paranoid Vision, The Interrupters, Sick of It All, L7, The Rezillos, Planet Smashers, Satanic Surfers, D.O.A., Jeff Rosenstock, N Policy, Iron Chic, Seaway, Bishops Green, Les Fucking Raymonds, and Pussy Stench.
The festival passes cost $70 dollars. There are many transportation accommodations from companies like Greyhound, Orleans Express, Maheux, NY Trailways, Maritime Bus, Intercar, Limocar, Galland and more. The festival also provides a hotel accommodation called Carrefour Sherbrooke that is a five minute distance from a subway that will take fifteen minutes to arrive at the festival. The tickets can be bought through the festival’s website.
