A SIRIUS Satellite Radio presentation at the 2010 Montreal High Lights
Festival all-nighter: The Bande à part Masquerade Ball

MONTREAL, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Montreal High Lights festivalgoers are invited to come dance up a sweat at one of the year's biggest free bashes! On Saturday, February 27 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Bande à part and SIRIUS Satellite Radio will take the Métropolis (59 Sainte-Catherine St. W.) by storm, hosting a masquerade ball extravaganza with loads of excitement, surprises and magic in store.

A number of artists will take the stage all night long, right into the wee hours:

    DJ Annie Q at 9 p.m.
    Xavier Caféïne at 10 p.m.
    Les Breastfeeders at 11 p.m.
    Duchess Says at midnight
    Surprise guest at 1 a.m.
    Misteur Valaire at 2 a.m.
    DJ Hatchmatik from 3 a.m. to closing

People are strongly encouraged to come out in crazy, colourful, eye-catching costumes... or simply choose a free mask at the door. Throughout the night, partiers will be able to take a load off at the Savoy, a special room decorated by Urbania magazine, with musical stylings by DJ Luv, between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. The Masquerade Ball will be broadcast live on Sirius (channel 87), as well as on Bandeapart.fm.

Introduced in 2001, the cross-platform initiative Bande à part (a component of Espace musique) serves up a unique, leading-edge window on the French-language new music scene. Bandeapart.fm provides access to online video concerts, a blog, Web radio stations, weekly podcasts, interactive music charts, and much more.
