Montreal, June 6 (IBNS): Montréal turns into a big party place every year. Join one of the 1000 parties that start in the morning and end only when you call it a night. Over 3,000 artists from 30 countries visit this festival with two million attendees.

The Jazz Festival takes place in the summer. Old Montréal can be explored by bike, carriage or foot, soaking up its renowned duality of Old World charm infused with energy.

During the festival, one can take a breather in Mont Royal Park or experience Montréal clubbing at its hippest.

One can also visit the year-round gift boutique in the hall of the Maison du Festival Rio Tinto Alcan.

This year there is scope to listen to a new interpretation of jazz at the world’s largest jazz festival. Attendees can also rub shoulders jazz-fans, aficionados of the genre in its purest form, and the artists themselves.

One can dance and sing to the beat, dream in French, snack on poutine, linger over a five-course tasting menu and shop at the chic boutiques of Montréal.

Head to Maison du Festival de Jazz for an intimate concert or let loose in the open air ambience. Sip cappuccino at an open-air café and bite into pain au chocolat minutes after it emerges from the oven. Cheer alongside 100,000 new friends in the pedestrian-only Quartier des spectacles and cherish remakes of Miles Davis classics.
