Lasso Montreal Saddles Up For Star-Studded Debut

Inaugural lineup of Montreal country fest includes Bryan, Bentley, Ballerini & more.

2022 is the year that Montreal goes completely country, with the first edition of Lasso hitting town Aug. 12 and 13. The world-class country music festival, taking place on Île Sainte-Hélène at Parc Jean-Drapeau, will bring some of the biggest artists of the genre together for a multi-day, high-energy hoedown.

The inaugural lineup of Lasso will feature platinum-selling American singer-songwriter Dierks Bentley, who has a 10th album on the horizon. Joining him on Friday is Nashville’s Old Dominion, playing in Montreal for the first time and showcasing their new album Time, Tequila and Therapy. Ashley McBryde, nominated for several Grammys over her career, will be adding a dose of badass Southern girl power to the lineup. Tenille Townes will represent the sound of Canadian country — something she is very comfortable doing after winning four awards at the 2019 Canadian Country Music Association Awards, including Female Artist of the Year.

The following day will include performances from headliner Luke Bryan, one of the hottest country artists in the world, as well as Kelsea Ballerini, the Tennessee native who has reshaped the sound of country music with her heartfelt songs. Football-player-turned-country-star Riley Green will be on hand as well, along with Breland, an American singer-songwriter and producer pushing the genre in new directions with the addition of rap, R&B, and soul into his sound.

The local country scene will also be well-represented throughout the weekend, with talented artists such as Matt Lang, Sara Dufour, Five Roses, Brittany Kennell and Léa Jarry. Stay tuned as more amazing acts will be announced in the coming weeks!
