Kane Brown, Chris Stapleton headline Lasso 2023

Two day event is Aug 18-19th

The inaugural Lasso Montréal festival, presented by Bell in collaboration with Coors Original was such a massive success last summer for fans and artists alike, that there was no question we’d be doing it again! The Lasso experience was pure country gold – a chance to celebrate the power of live music surrounded by friends, family, and fellow fans at Parc Jean-Drapeau, one of the most picturesque festival sites in North America. Last year’s Lasso brought out over 35,000 music fans, some of whom experienced a summer music festival for the first time, and it was a revelation for many, with reverence for live music at the very heart of it!

General admission two day tickets start at $230 CAD. American Express Cardmembers can get Front Of The Line presale tickets until December 11th at 10 pm ET. Two day tickets will go on sale Monday, December 12th at 10 am via lassomontreal.com. Single day tickets will go on sale at a later date.

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!

Friday night’s headliner Kane Brown is the first artist to have simultaneous No. 1 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.

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 No. 1 chart toppers. His debut solo album, 2015’s Traveller (recognized by Billboard as Top Country Album of the Decade) reached No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 and was certified 4x Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
