World’s largest jazz festival in Montreal cancelled due to pandemic

This year’s Montreal Jazz Festival, the world’s largest, and other popular summer jamborees in Canada’s francophone metropolis were cancelled Friday due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was scheduled to start on June 25. The Jazz Festival’s general manager Jacques Primeau mentioned in a statement that the decision to cancel the festival was not an easy one but it had become necessary to protect the public as well as the artist.

The Francos de Montreal music festival, which is put on by the same group and was scheduled for June 12, was also cancelled, he said.
