The sounds of some of Montreal's best music acts rang through the streets of the Notre-Dame-de-Grace (NDG) neighbourhood as the 2024 Porchfest (Balconfete) kicked off for the May long weekend. 

Organizers promised hundreds of bands would be set up throughout the streets of the Montreal neighbourhood to play shows free of charge.

A map of the show locations is available here.

Proceeds from the 2024 edition go towards The Rise, a woman's centre in NDG.
