MONTREAL, June 4, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The second edition of Lunch Beat Montréal (#LBMTL) will take place this June 14 as part of the St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival. Ticket holders will meet outside this time, at Parc des Amériques (corner St-Laurent and Rachel), which will be transformed into a dance floor for the space of an hour.
"The first Lunch Beat at Excentris was such a success - we sold 300 tickets in less than 72 hours - that we absolutely had to plan a second one and share the experience with more Montrealers. Our goal is to encourage office workers to move, showcase new artists and visit exciting parts of the city," explains Jan-Nicolas Vanderveken, the catalyst for Lunch Beat Montreal.
The Montreal duo Beat Market will be at the decks, serving up an electro-retro-futurist set. Founded in 2010, Beat Market has quickly built a reputation on the electro scene thanks to thrilling performances and collaborations with DJ Champion, DJ Lexis, Misteur Valaire, Plaster and Qualité Motel.
The concept is the same: Join us for 60 minutes of dancing over your lunch hour! To respect the spirit of this international movement born in Sweden, remember:
- Everyone is invited, but if you come, you must dance!
- The experience lasts the length of a 60-minute set, from noon to 1PM.
- Lunch Beat offers irresistible beats, a to-go lunch and water.
For $10 - the cost of a lunch downtown - participants will also enjoy a vegetarian lunch served by Fuschia and liquid refreshment from Karma Vitamin Water and Dublin's Pub Cider. Tickets are available at: http://lbmtl2.eventbrite.com.
In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for June 20 or June 21.
Lunch Beat Montréal, a non-profit event, is made possible thanks to the contributions of volunteers and the generosity of our partners: St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival, as well as 1ONE, CNW, Lassonde, Infopresse, Piknic Électronik and TP1.
