The Mode + Design festival is not just fashion shows! There are also live music concerts for all tastes. Métro suggests two Montreal programs among programming. 

  • A heterogeneous mix of the most authentic, the French-speaking rap group LaF, which brings together three rappers and three rhythm designers, will be in show on the main stage Saturday August 27 at 9 p.m.. The group won the Les Francouvertes showcase competition in 2018.
  • The experimental electronic pop music duo formed in 2018 Xela Edna and Eius Echo will offer two short performances during the parades on Friday August 26, at 6:15 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.. We find in their unique music sounds as organic as they are electronic. On stage, their performance never lacks energy as the duo sways, all against a bewitching background of organic and futuristic aesthetics.
