On a weekend early in August, Montreal has an alternative/independent rock music festival with some of the biggest names in music in the world. Pop, punk, emo, metal, all kinds of different music outdoors in a beautiful park. There are over 40 bands playing all day long on four stages on Saint Helen’s Island in Jean-Drapeau Park (Metro Jean-Drapeau). A weekend pass is about $120, or a single day is about $70.
