evenko and Live Nation in association with Universal Music Canada present the inaugural edition of LASSO MONTRÉAL, a world-class country music festival taking place on Montreal’s beautiful Île Sainte-Hélène on August 14 and 15, 2020. The kickoff edition of this countrified party is sure to attract fans young and old with a state-of-the-art festival experience at the spectacular Espace 67 of Parc Jean-Drapeau. LASSO MONTRÉAL promises a truly unparalleled weekend for fans of country’s new vanguard as well as established favourites by honouring tradition while at the same time embracing the newest trends! Who better to headline year one than the biggest country star on the planet, Luke Bryan!
A bonafide superstar with more RIAA certified digital singles than any artist in the genre, Luke Bryan has sold over 54 million digital singles, 12.5 million albums and has generated seven BILLION streams with his music. The award-winning singer played to a frenzied sold-out crowd of over 17,000 at Montreal’s Bell Centre in 2016, the same year he played to over 1 million fans worldwide with his wildly successful stadium tour!
“Luke Bryan is the kind of act that appeals to passionate music fans of all stripes,” says Nick Farkas, evenko’s Senior Vice President, Booking, Concerts and Events. “He certainly proved that Montreal is a hotbed for hot country when he sold out here last time, but his music is universally loved and we are thrilled to have him represent us as LASSO’s first headline act.”
More big acts will be confirmed in the coming weeks, stay tuned for your fix of country goodness!
