The Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, presented by TD Bank Group, in collaboration with Rio Tinto, has presented the latest additions to an already stellar lineup for the 41st edition of the fest, which takes place from June 25 to July 4, 2020.

From the biggest names in jazz like Jack DeJohnette, Ravi Coltrane, John Scofield, and Dave Holland to genre benders like The Bad Plus and The Cinematic Orchestra, there is something for everyone.

Afrobeat fans will be moved by the rhythms of KOKOROKO, while reggae lovers won’t want to miss Jamaican singer Protoje and his dynamic riddims. Guitar legend Taj Mahal and his quartet make another triumphant return to the FIJM while local favorites The Barr Brothers team up for an exclusive show with Les Filles de Illighadad from the Saharan Desert to bring the blues back to its roots. Cutting edge artists like Woodkid and Petit Biscuit will represent some of the best music from France, while Kendrick Lamar collaborator BJ The Chicago Kid will shine onstage at Club Soda.
