Balkan / Romanian ensemble Shukar Roma, featuring acclaimed Montreal-based accordion player Sergiu Popa. Playing at Parc de la Petite Italie (St. Laurent & St. Zotique) for “Kids POP in the Park” during POP Montreal. FREE.

Montreal-based pop/rock ensemble Lakes of Canada take their harmony-filled tunes to Petit Campus (Prince Arthur coin St. Dominique) during POP Montreal. They’re booked to play alongside three other sweet bands – all for just $10. Great bang for you buck at the fest!
