What is Mundial Montréal

A boutique event, Mundial Montréal has been inviting talents and sounds from around the world to Montréal for 12 years now to perform in front of industry professionals. The event is distinguished by the carefully selected artists, and by the strength of the connections created between artists and professionals from around fifty regions of the globe.

HISTORY

PRESENT AND PAST

Mundial Montréal was born from a crazy idea during a taxi ride in New York in January 2011. Sébastien Nasra and Derek Andrews shared the same car to go to an artists' showcase. It was in this frantic race that the two colleagues came to the same conclusion: there is no annual professional meeting in North America that brings together all the music of the world.

Our Mission

Mundial Montréal aims to offer an inclusive space for artists and workers from culturally diverse backgrounds through an event in a friendly format where everything is in place to nurture connections, generate tangible export benefits and contribute to a healthy and sustainable musical ecosystem.

Diversity and inclusion, Human connections, Results
