Aug 2 2022, 3:21 pm

As summer roars on, most of Montreal’s popular music festivals have already come and gone. And with July in the rearview mirror, many of us have already subconsciously prepared for fall.

Luckily, there’s still a cavalcade of big-name acts coming to town over the next month, which means summer can still feel like summer — for a few more weeks at least.

Here are eight of the biggest concerts hitting Montreal this August.
