Montreal’s continuously growing unconventional music fest, Suoni Per Il Popolo (Italian for “Sounds for the People”) is back for a 9th year!

Although still in the early planning stages, organizers have announced that the alternative music celebration will run between June 3 and June 30. Among some of the acts confirmed so far, you’ll hear from TV on the Radio, Six Organs of Admittance, Monk’s Casino and the Holm’s Valentine Trio.

Never heard of any of these acts? Well, that’s the whole point! Suoni’s existence is to bring out the best in “but is not limited to free jazz, noise, electronica, turntable art, pop, soundscapes, experimental rock, twentieth century avant garde, electronica, musique actuelle and spoken word”. So, just because you haven’t heard of said artists, doesn’t mean they ain’t talented!
