MEG Montreal has announced the programming for its 21st edition, which will take place from August 30 to September 2 at the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) and Parc Jean-Drapeau, in collaboration with Piknic Électronik.


The event focuses on hip-hop, dance and electronic music, and has earned a favourable reputation by uniting curious and open-minded music lovers while representing Canadian music and connecting North America to Europe.

This year's fest features four events on the Piknic Électronik site and five concerts at the SAT. Starting Friday, August 30, Parc Jean-Drapeau will feature headline sets by American house duo Mood II Swing for the official launch party, followed by Rone, Stereoclip and Montreal techno artist Misstress Barbara.
