Lunch Beat lands in Montreal!

April 26, 2013

We’re proud to sponsor the first-ever Lunch Beat in Montreal! This event, which has already spread to more than 50 cities around the world, will be making its Montreal premiere on May 9 at Excentris. Will you be joining the party?

Lunch what?

The Lunch Beat concept is simple: getting together to dance over the lunch hour. It’s an idea that’s spread like wildfire since it was first launched by a 28-year-old woman in Sweden three years ago. “ I love working and I like going out to dance, ” explains founder Molly Ränge. ” But I was frustrated to see that my two passions were not always compatible… One day I asked myself, what if I could combine the two? ”

Work hard, party harder!

Picture it! It’s the middle of the week and you’re at the office. At 11:45am, you send off your last email of the morning and put on your coat to leave. You walk to the place on your ticket and… dance your cares away for 60 minutes to beats from the best DJs in the city.

Your mind at ease, you take your (vegetarian!) lunch back to the office and start your afternoon of work with newfound energy and inspiration. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

A first in Montreal

Interested? Tickets will be available as of April 29, but for this first edition, only 250 tickets will be available. The cost? $10, About the same as a quick lunch downtown. Manning the turntables for this inaugural event is Hissy Fit (Turbo/Aufect/Hybridity), who’ll be serving up a house-techno set with « garage » flavour.
