What: As part of Red Bull Music Academy Montréal, Björk will translate her idiosyncratic approach to create a different sort of immersive experience, DJing all night long on back-to-back nights on October 25th and 26th. A DJ set from Björk is as much education as it is celebration – expect the collision of music you have never heard before and might never hear again, merging abrasive electronics with the singular vocals of artists from around the world. One thing is for sure: You’ll leave the party thinking even more than ever that there is no one quite like Björk.
When: October 25 to October 27
Where: Cirque Éloize, 417, rue Berri, Montreal
