The Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival (Sounds for the People Festival) is a dynamic, community based leftfield music festival which takes every June in Montréal, Québec. It presents an eclectic collection of musical genres which includes but is not limited to free jazz, noise, electronica, turntable art, pop, soundscapes, experimental rock, twentieth century avant garde, electronica, musique actuelle and spoken word. Given the context in which much of this music is made and the reaction it provokes, it is also music that resonates with progressive social movements. The festival is committed to presenting both established musicians who bring a wealth of tradition, experience and history to their playing as well as younger, emerging artists.
