LASSO plans to go ahead with inaugural edition in 2021

Montreal country music festival, LASSO was set to makes its debut this past summer at Parc Jean Drapeau. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, the festival’s inaugural launch year was postponed indefinitely.

Now, Evenko, the organizer behind LASSO, announced it plans to go ahead with the festival in 2021.

LASSO’s line-up is set to include headliners Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Old Dominion, and Morgan Wallen along with acts like Jordan Davis, HARDY, Blanco Brown, Mackenzie Porter, Tenille Arts, and Montreal’s own Brittany Kennell.

With regards to COVID-19, organizers had this to say, “Of course, LASSO will follow all COVID-19 guidelines (as they evolve) and urges everyone to do the same. Organizers will continue to update the status of the festival but are very optimistic that this will be a good old fashioned country music gathering.”

LASSO is scheduled to run August 13-14 at Parc Jean Drapeau with LASSO In The City, an on-island event, on August 12. More information and tickets can be found at
