Loitered Lens: Presence Autochtone 2017

Scenes from stage and Street at Montreal’s Presence Autochtone festival

Presence Autochtone 2017

Music has become a vital and integral part of the festival, and through the free concerts in Place des Festivals, it is now the most popular part.

The fact that Présence Autochtone coincides with Osheaga, now Canada’s biggest music festival (happening a short Metro ride away) hasn’t dampened enthusiasm. If Osheaga is Glastonbury, then this is WOMAD.
