Selection Process:

Your application is examined at one of their Listening Sessions. This is where some of Montreal’s finest music curators, musicians, professionals, fans, and listeners get together for hours of listening to each and every band submitted to POP Montreal. With the help of free beer and snacks, listeners are warmly invited to join them every week between February and July. They casually sit around their office couches and (anonymously) vote yay or nay, one submission at a time. Bands are either accepted and submitted to the programming team, or invited to try again next year.

The deadline to apply is April 30, 2020.
