Hudson Music Festival 2017

This year, for its 11th edition, the Hudson Music Festival will host 14 shows in 8 days, starting august 5th to 12th, 2017. You will hear different bands from Canada and across the world.

The music produced and presented by HMF is not restricted to one specific genre, and is explicitly selected to encourage innovation, surprising collaborations, and the performance of new work. This focus allows artists to take risks with their work and exposes festival-goers to music and artistic approaches they might not have the opportunity to experience anywhere else.

The Hudson Music Festival (HMF) was established in 2007 to highlight and support the vibrant cultural environment in the village of Hudson, 
Quebec.

The mission of the HMF is to provide performance opportunities for talented professional and amateur musicians from the region, and to bring exciting national and international artists to the Hudson community.

As a non-for-profit, the management and operations of HMF are overseen by a board of directors composed of people from the community who are committed to the development and promotion of music.

Perched on the edge of the Lake of Two Mountains, dominated by the architectural facades of buildings, new England style, church steeples from another era and covered by the starry sky, the festival welcomes the past eight years a range of artists from the four corners of the world.
