Some interesting details have been revealed about Carly’s participation at Discoteque taking place today:
“It’s a DJ show, but with the music played by musicians,” said singer-songwriter/rocker Yann Perreau, who is in charge of stage direction for Discothèque.
“All of the songs, except the first and the last, are going to flow into each other just the way the songs would if it was a DJ spinning the tunes,” said Perreau. “Basically, the idea is to create une grosse boîte de nuit en plein centre-ville.”
“We can’t wait,” said Doroschuk. “We’re pretty close with Carly Rae Jepsen and her crew.”
…..“I don’t know what to expect, but I love it when an offer like that comes my way,” said Jepsen. “I also love Montreal. It’s one of my favourite places in all of Canada. I already have my poutine places that I want to go to, and some of my favourite shopping is done there. So it’s going to be a nice little holiday/work-cation.”
Discotheque is an outdoor festival helps celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with a 90-minute concert that includes artists such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Men Without Hats, Radio Radio, Muzion, Buffalo Hat Singers, along with 24 musicians, 5 singers, 35 dancers, wild projections, surprises and a fireworks display staged by Yann Perreau and under the musical and artistic direction of DJ Champion and Alex McMahon.
