The One Man Band Festival is a unique new music festival that celebrates and showcases the talents and creativity of one-man/woman band musicians and performers the likes of loop artists, singer songwriters, dj's, multi-instrumentalists and other forms of solo performers. For reasons of feasibility, creative expression, financial limitations and technological advancements in music production, artists today are finding new ways to express their output by recording, touring and performing alone. This festival aims to showcase their talents and support the one man/woman band phenomenon! Already in its 3rd year, the festival has grown to accommodate nearly 100 one man and one woman bands in Montreal, Canada, USA, UK, France, Portugal, Japan, and has been the subject of several features including a BBC documentary. The Festival is taking its place to become one of the most unique music festivals in Montreal and around the world
