Kane Brown & Chris Stapleton to headline Montreal’s LASSO festival in 2023
 
If there was ever a question, Montreal is now most definitely a country music town, and LASSO Montreal has proven to be one of the most exciting country music events in North America! With some of the top talent in country music booked for 2023, next summer’s edition looks to be an even bigger, unforgettable country event.

From August 18-19, 2023, Montreal’s Espace 67 festival site on beautiful Île Sainte-Hélène (a quick 10 minutes from downtown by metro) will once again be home to a massive hoedown to celebrate the power of live music! 

Montreal has always been a music city, but this city is clearly now a country capital as well. Last year’s kickoff edition of LASSO was a revelation and a hell of a good time! We can’t wait to do it again.” – Nick Farkas, Senior Vice-President, Booking, Concerts and Events, evenko.

The second edition will shine with:

Friday Night‘s headliner Kane Brown is the first artist to have simultaneous Number Ones on all five main Billboard country charts at the same time. Born in Georgia and then relocating to Tennessee with his family as a young man, Brown eventually found fame online, publishing videos of himself covering country legends like Alan Jackson, George Strait and Blake Shelton, to name a few. His baritone voice is pure country gold which has resonated with audiences worldwide, garnering Brown an unprecedented string of eight No. 1 Billboard Country Airplay songs. However, Kane has also forged new roads, collaborating with the likes of Khalid, Marshmello and Becky G, and playing around with trap beats, mixtapes, and more of a futuristic and diverse approach to country music. The young performer also launched his own record label, 1021 Entertainment, in a joint venture with Sony Music Nashville and was the first male country artist to perform at the recent MTV Video Music Awards. Recently, Kane took center stage at the Bell Centre on December 2nd, and the crowd was ecstatic! So, fans looking for the future of country music won’t want to miss Kane Brown when he headlines LASSO Montréal 2023!

On Saturday night, hot on the spurred heels of a sold-out Bell Centre show in September, Chris Stapleton, one of country music’s finest, will be taking the stage at LASSO 2023. Born and raised in Kentucky, Stapleton ranks among the most authentic and successful country stars in the world. The singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer was recognized by the Academy of Country Music as the inaugural ACM artist-songwriter of the decade, having written over 170 songs for a variety of country legends and newcomers, including six #1 chart toppers. His debut solo album, 2015’s Traveller (recognised by Billboard as Top Country Album of the Decade) reached Number One on the US Billboard 200 and was certified four-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Since then, every one of Stapleton’s albums has been a huge success – in 2018, he actually held the top three spots on Billboard’s Top Country Albums charts with three different albums. His soulful countrified voice (which has been compared to the late Chris Cornell’s) has accompanied the likes of Taylor Swift, Brandi Carlile, Justin Timberlake, and Adele (to name a few), and his all-American roadshow is not to be missed!

Stay tuned; more acts will be announced early in the new year!
