The Festival International de Jazz de Montréal (English: Montreal International Jazz Festival) is an annual jazz festival held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It starts from the last weekend of June and finishes the first weekend of July each year and the total of 10 days. The Montreal Jazz Fest holds the 2004 Guinness World Record as the world's largest jazz festival. Every year it features roughly 3,000 artists from 30-odd countries, more than 650 concerts (including 450 free outdoor performances), and welcomes close to 2.5 million visitors (34% of whom are tourists) as well as 400 accredited journalists. The festival takes place at 10 free outdoor stages and 10 indoor concert halls.
It is truly a fest for everyone and every budget,
2013 was the 34th edition of the Montreal International Jazz Festival. There were special events for kids and dozens of free outdoor shows every single day of the fest, from 11 a.m. through midnight. A major part of the city's downtown core was closed to traffic for ten days.

This is interesting action and street shot with the musicians performing and the crowd enjoying. The day was beautiful, giving a good light for colors and an image of very good quality.

On a vraiment l'impression que le monde entier envahit les rues de Montréal à cette occasion annuelle. Pour deux semaines les rues de la ville sont envahies d'amateurs de jazz. Ici, les casques de hockey attirent l'attention sur ces participants.

This is nice and colourful and seems to attract people of all ages. The musicians don't look quite like I imagine the average jazz band, but I guess a lot of different styles could fit into that category very broadly. And who cares about labels anyway, as long as it makes people happy?

Hello Anna. In the inner cities of metropolitan areas is always something going on. Above all, the street performers have great performances here. People like it, and love to pass the time. I think all parties involved have fun in this musical performance. Overall, well seen and presented.

The number of people has an effect of scale. You have captured well the action at the Montréal Jazz festival. It is clear and sharp. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

I love those jazz festivals! I used to go every year when I live in New Orleans. They are so much fun and of course the food was great too. Nice capture of this action with good details. Well done, tfs.

Nice view of the street during the jazz festival. This year, the Montreal Jazz Festival will be playing my favorite pianist and singer Diana Krall.
This is a good, expressive photo.
For me superb
