Unforgettable Events

Of course, Black and Blue are about more than just music. This year’s events have also drawn in some of the finest industry talent available to craft a unique experience you won’t soon forget.
For Black and Blue 360 (the festival’s main event, which takes place on Sunday the 9th), Montreal’s iconic La TOHU building will be transformed into a “multidisciplinary circular concept” designed to create a truly immersive experience. Helming this project, art designer Louis Guillemette has teamed up with lighting designer Daniel Brazeau and technical manager Fred Gouin.
Other events will include a Happy Hour with DJ Rémi Trottier and DJ André Morin on the 8th, a VIP Launch cocktail with DJ DanYUL on the 6th, and of course, the famous Friday-night, Black and Blue Leather Ball with DJ Ashley Gauthier and DJ Chris Mortagua on the 7th.

Is Black and Blue For You?

If you’re sitting there wondering whether or not this festival is worth your time and money, then let us give you just a few more reasons why Black and Blue is one of the best dance festivals in the world.
First of all, it’s grass-roots. If you’re the person who hears the phrase ‘for a good cause’ and worries about where your money is going, then let us put those fears at bay. Black and Blue were founded in 1991 with a turnout of just 800 people, all coming together as a way to raise money and fight back against AIDS/HIV. At this point, the BBCM has now raised over a million dollars for charitable organizations, and that number just keeps going up every year.
Secondly, it’s popular. Now, don’t get us wrong, we love smaller events, but it’s hard to deny the appeal of a big crowd, and Black and Blue certainly has that. Every year between 60’000 and 75’000 people flock to Montreal to be a part of this fantastic festival, and that number is still growing.
But why is it so popular? Well, that brings us to our third reason: Black and Blue is a world of fun. So if you’re looking to dance, drink, and have a great time, you may sign up now. This Canadian festival is a party like no other that you’ll remember for the rest of your life!

Finally, if you’re as excited about Black and Blue as we are, you’d better book your tickets fast because October is just around the corner, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on an event like this!
