Festival LineupJuly 28 at Parc Jean-Drapeau
Our vendor village will feature a record fair of old, new and rare vinyl for newbies and record collectors alike. Been looking for a Black Vinyl Edition of The Misfits’ “Horror Business”? Come have a look.
Montreal has been host to so many classic punk rock shows over the years and we’ve got the posters to prove it. Take a walk down memory lane with our poster exhibit on site and grab a silkscreen for yourself.
Want a break from the mosh pit? We’ll be screening a variety of films & documentaries all day long exploring punk rock history, music, culture, fashion and more.
What started on the fringes and developed over a few years came into a focus in 1977. Iggy, The Ramones, The New York Dolls, The 101ers, The Damned, The Saints, and a few others fueled what would be the explosion. That big bang of punk and alternative music would continue expanding until the present day. London was an epicenter and so was New York, and shortly afterward, LA, San Francisco, Paris, Montreal, Toronto and everywhere there were kids who felt they had to rebel against the status quo.
‘77 was a brilliant and diverse fulmination that shook youth musically, graphically, and socially around the world. The ‘77 music scene impacted the staid Woodstock influenced fashion of the day, injecting a dose of high-intensity adrenaline into the art scene. The kids united, then subdivided into a plethora of sub-genre and suddenly punk was an art form. Goth, ska, electro and new romantic all had beginnings in '77 bands. The influences of Reggae, Celtic, Blues and R&B were breathed in it and spat out.
A little bit about us
’77 MONTRÉAL seeks to celebrate the quintessence of the alternative music scene and the cultural shifts that have unfolded over the last 40 years with an exhibition and concert. The promoters behind ’77 MONTRÉAL have been booking punk rock shows in Montréal for over 25 years. From the early days of church basements and clubs to promoting 19 Vans Warped tours and our earliest festivals, Ramp Rage and Sno Jam, our love of the music and the scene has never faded.
We are very happy to embark on our next journey. With the ’77 MONTRÉAL project we are hoping to create not just a festival but a living archive of the Montréal Punk scene uniting all the eras of the music we love into one glorious celebration of the genre.
