10 reasons why the 2017 edition of the Francos was a flop

Wrap-up of the 29th edition of Les FrancoFolies de Montréal

Montréal, Saturday June 17, 2017

  1. Nobody partied!
  2. Young people just don’t dig francophone music.
  3. Creativity and daring reached a new low.
  4. Where did all the diversity go?
  5. Just not wild enough.
  6. Nobody was talking about them.
  7. Nobody did any business.
  8. No new up-and-coming artists. Looks like the end is near!
  9.  At the Francos, anniversaries are not celebrated.
  10. Not a soul on the streets… And no sunshine. Oh well…

A few memories from this year’s edition:

…Such a flop that we won’t be staging the next edition!

Psst… Of course we will – from June 7 to 16, 2018, in celebration of our 30thanniversary!
