The 2019 Montreal Audio Fest has opened at the Hotel Bonaventure across the street from the city’s main railway station and even at the opening time of 11am, there was a long queue at the registration desk. The show, which runs until 8pm tonight, 10am6pm Saturday, and 10am5pm Sunday, has a theme celebrating both the Woodstock Festival’s 50th anniversary and the 50 years since John Lennon’s and Yoko Ono’s infamous bed-in in Montreal and the Fab Four’s last live concert. (There is a Beatles exhibition in the hotel’s St. Laurent 2 room.) I will be covering the show live for Stereophile, along with Robert Schryer and Art Dudley. Stay tuned for our reports.
