Les FrancoFolies de Montreal is the biggest music festival in the French speaking world. This mega event is celebrating 23 years and it runs from June 9 to June 18. What's great about this event is that there are many free outdoor concerts and it's a perfect occasion to meet up with friends for a fun time. This past weekend I decided to check out the "Quartier des Spectacles" and snoop around with my camera hoping to get some interesting shots of the preparations involved in setting up an event of this size. As expected, there were workmen busying away and plenty of security personnel everywhere. (Hint: some very expensive sound equipment on site, etc.) I wasn't all that comfortable about hanging around and taking photos but I did manage to snap a few shots.
