MONTREAL, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - In partnership with M for Montréal and as part of the Planet Québec program, Tourisme Montréal will take part in the music segment of the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival to showcase up-and-coming local artists. Next March 16, the
city of Austin will be treated to the fabulous sound of some of
Montréal's most talented groups. In an effort to support Montréal
creativity, Tourisme Montréal will fly to Texas so as to promote
Montréal as a dynamic destination, home to one of North America's most
original musical scenes.
A not-to-be-missed event in the music, film and interactive media
industries, SXSW annually welcomes over 120,000 professionals and close
to 5,000 journalists from across the globe. A unique meeting place that
promotes discovery and rich exchange, this internationally-renowned
festival will be held from March 8 to 17.
"Tourisme Montréal's interest in culture and Montréal creativity isn't
anything new. We have been dedicated to supporting and promoting this
incredible facet of our city for well over 15 years, as demonstrated by
our extensive cultural tourism development initiatives, underlines the
Honourable Charles Lapointe, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Tourisme Montréal. For us, SXSW is a remarkable opportunity to showcase
the very essence of our city, which lies in the talent of our artists."
Under the aegis of Planet Québec, an initiative of the Government of
Québec, Tourisme Montréal will collaborate with M for Montréal in order
to present the artists, Ain't No Love, Peter Peter, Plaster, Hôtel Morphée and Koriass at Austin's Swann Dive nightclub this coming March 16, from 12 p.m. to
"Tourisme Montréal recognized that South by Southwest is an
extraordinary showcase for local artists. We are thrilled to work with
them and partners from Planet Québec to promote Montréal's musical
scene to international markets. Their support in content distribution
and their promotional expertise will be of invaluable assistance to
us," states Sébastien Nasra, President and Founder of M for Montréal.
So as to maximize the scope of this initiative, reporter Tamy Emma Pépin
will be on site to produce short videos of her interviews with
different Montréal bands, which will be broadcast on the Tourisme Montréal blog as well as on other social media platforms. Tourisme Montréal
representatives will be on hand to spark and encourage exchanges, as
