The concept of Parenthèse was first born from the desire to make accessible different  international DJs who were never produced in Canada  to electronic music  lovers as well as neophytes.

With this concept, we are trying to find different venues for each night and to keep an underground spirit which is specific to our universe.

The goal is usually to invite an artist to perform a set (live or DJ set) for a duration of 6 to 7 hours. A prowess for some, a challenge for  others, everybody put their heart into the process. This allows DJs to challenge themselves for such a duration and to perform unique sets.

We usually have the artists representing OCTOV for the warm-up. We also invite other local artists to show to our public the diversity of Montreal’s scene.
