Attention all country music fans! After two years of cancellations and postponements, the Lasso Festival is finally coming to Montreal this summer!
Lasso Montréal is an urban country music festival that was supposed to be inaugurated in the summer of 2020. Due to the pandemic, the inaugural festival was postponed until last year until it was cancelled yet again. The festival will be held on Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13, at Île Sainte-Hélène, near Parc Jean-Drapeau.
This year’s Lasso Festival will headline two of country’s biggest stars, Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan on August 12 and August 13, respectively. The lineup of famous country stars also includes Old Dominion, Kelsea Ballerini, Ashley McBryde, Riley Green, Tenille Townes, Tick Hicks, Breland, and Robyn Ottolini. Quebec’s own Matt Lang, Sara Dufour and Léa Jarry will also be there to represent the local country scene. More artists are expected to be announced in the next couple of weeks.
Tickets and passes are currently on sale on their website: lassomontreal.com, with general admission starting at $130 a ticket and $220 for the two-day passes. Those who purchased their tickets and passes in the past are still eligible for this year’s event. If you’re thinking of going to the festival, hurry up, because tickets are only on sale from Friday, March 4 to Sunday, April 17.
Can’t wait to see y’all country folks this August!
