Montreal Gay TravelBack before the bubble burst, when we were fantasizing about a tertiary residence in Montreal, we found ourselves in a residential sales office, talking to a fellow New Yorker, a classical violinist, who was moving permanently to Montreal because “this city has music in its soul.”

That sentiment echoed in our ears throughout this year’s edition of Divers/Cite, Montreal’s annual weeklong summer music festival.

With nearly fifty hours of free outdoor parties and performances, Divers/Cite rivals the intensity of Winter Music Conference while channeling the love-fueled atmosphere of Woodstock – and the 19th anniversary of Divers/Cite proved yet again that it’s all about the music: the music in Montreal’s collective heart and soul.
