Wax Tailor

The Spinmaster takes command
of the mid-Festival Special Event!

Montreal, Tuesday, July 2, 2013 — Every year, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal presented by TD in collaboration with Rio Tinto Alcan offers its massive fanbase at least one mega-party. In the wake of bashes starring Champion, Bran Van 3000, Beast, Mister Valaire and Escort, to name but a few, the Festival keeps that celebratory tradition alive with a show starring one of the hottest French DJs of the moment, Wax Tailor, on July 2 at 9:30 p.m. on the TD Stage! At the mid-point of this 34th edition, the Place des Festivals gets turned upside down and inside out! Spread the word: Tuesday = Party!

French DJ Wax Tailor ranks among the leaders of the international electronica scene. His invigorating, cinematic blast of orchestral trip-hop/hip-hop set Métropolis ablaze in 2010 (as opening act for Caravan Palace) and lit up L’Astral last year. Welcoming a collection of super special guests—Jennifer Charles, Charlotte Savary, Mattic, A.S.M. and Voice—the brilliant singer-songwriter-producer-manager now marshals his many talents and takes centre stage to meet the coolest possible challenge: to get tens of thousands of Jazzfest fans dancing in the street during the mid-Festival Special Event! Attention: the Party goes mega in downtown Montréal!

The 34th edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal will run as of today to July 7. Complete program at
