What travellers are saying
- My husband and I have come to the Montreal Jazz Festival 15 times since 2002 and have always had a wonderful time.
We are great lovers of jazz and music and drove six hours to get to Montréal in time on Friday, June 30th to see John Scofield perform.
We quickly checked into the Doubletree, walked to the theatre and were sitting in our seats at the wonderfully historical Monument National. Just as the show was about to begin, the fire alarms went off.
Everyone was evacuated from the theatre with no instructions about returning.
When we emailed the theatre to ask about receiving a refund, we were denied. We were
told the concert started 45 minutes later.
No one gave any instructions about returning to see the show. We felt that belied denied a refund was very unfair since there was no information about returning.
We were even willing to compromise and ask if just one ticket could be refunded instead of two. Again, we were told no.
Thankfully, we saw Rodrigo and Gabriella on Saturday and Melanie Gardot on Sunday. Both shows were phenomenal.
However, our experience on Friday night was a bit of a slap in the face to loyal supporters who have only fond memories of 15 trips to the Jazz Fest.
The attitude of the theatre/Jazz Fest was not what we expected from a city that has been so gracious and hospitable in the past.Written July 4, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- You can get a full weekend pass and see different bands play throughout the weekend, many top names with the younger generation, average age I would say is 18.

- We came with my partner from New York to attend Igloofest! When we arrived we immediately appreciated the atmosphere of the festival. It was certainly very cold but it was really a fun and incredible evening. In addition we took advantage of the hotel package with double room and it was quite accessibleWritten November 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Attended the last night of the Francofolies in which the orchestra played outdoors with several famous Quebecoise singers. People were well-behaved, show was great.Written June 27, 2014
