Montreal hosts an impressive amount of events in the summer, especially when it comes to music. But one thing the city had been lacking was a little bit of country.
The inaugural LASSO music festival will saddle up and kick-off at Parc Jean-Drapeau on August 12 and 13.

The festival was supposed to launch its first edition in the summer of 2020 but was cancelled due to you-know-what.
On Wednesday, LASSO unveiled its first-ever lineup, featuring impressive country headliners Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kelsea Ballerini, and others. The festival says more acts will be announced in the coming weeks.
