For 43 years now, the Montréal International Jazz Festival has been drawing worldwide attention for showcasing dynamic music that is ever-evolving and pervades its surroundings. Jazz changes with the times and influences new musical trends. Look around you and you will hear, jazz is everywhere.

Our augmented reality experience presented by TD will help you discover more and transport you beyond the borders of jazz.


Awarded the title of largest Jazz Festival on the planet by Guinness World Records, the Festival is undisputedly synonymous with passion for music. Every year, the Festival offers programming where living legends rub shoulders with up-and-coming artists, where the definition of jazz expands at the crossroads of genre and influence, proving more than ever that jazz is alive and well at the heart of a music scene bubbling with creativity.


Since its beginnings, the Festival has welcomed an impressive number of musicians from all walks of life: passionate bluesmen, captivating vocalists and unrivalled virtuosos. Some of these musicians strike a special chord in the Festival’s history, earning their place on the Wall of Legends. Every evening, the windows of the Maison du Festival lights up to make these legends shine.
