2017 is a twin anniversary year for us as Productions Plateforme turns 35 and the record label Les Disques VICTO turns 30, not to forget that this will be the 33rd edition of FIMAV! These dates being very important to us, FIMAV will be presenting one of its most stimulating editions yet from May 15 to May 21, 2017, with discoveries and premieres galore, a visual arts exhibit, a digital creativity-themed sound art installations circuit in public spaces, and the addition of experimental short films programs!
Friday, May 19, 10 pm, Colisée A, $36

The musique of SENYAWA, this unique duo, blends traditional roots, punk attitude, and experimental approach, all paired with a strong tribal feel. FIMAV is proud to bring them to Canada for the first time.

Heavy, virtuoso instrumental rock, an unlikely patchwork of strong - and strongly compatible - musical personalities: EX EYE is one ferocious beast. On FIMAV's main stage, this band is guaranteed to explode!
Today, we reveal all of the information related to the 33rd FIMAV concerts and are excited to do so, because FIMAV 2017 is bursting with new features! On opening night, May 18, we will present our first concert in Carré 150’s main hall, the Salle Les Frères Lemaire. Also, all three concerts in our 1 PM series will take place in a brand new venue, Église St-Christophe d’Arthabaska, a church selected for its location: Laurier Street, a heritage street where visitors can gaze at beautiful century-old houses and the surrounding countryside. All the other concerts will be presented at Carré 150’s Cabaret Guy-Aubert and the usual two halls (A and B) we set up at Colisée Desjardins. Another new element: we lowered ticket prices across the board – an average price drop of 15% compared to last year, which makes our pass rebates even better! For more information about the concerts and our specially priced passes, discover the full schedule online or call 1-819-752-7912. Finally, stay tuned, because on April 5, 2017, we will unveil the programming for our circuit of sound art installations in public spaces and our brand new cinema component!
