Festival international de musique actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV)

Presenter / Victoriaville (Québec)

Michel Levasseur, artistic director

The mission of Productions Plateforme, a non-profit organization, is to promote and spread new experimental and improvised musics whether its origins are Quebecois and Canadian or international, notably with the organization of the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV). One other important role Productions Plateforme plays through the FIMAV is to develop and send out an original tourist call to the Bois-Francs region. FIMAV is a laboratory of contemporary music, jazz, rock, electroacoustic music, and free improvisation. We are the biggest event of this kind in North America. Follow us into a world of audacity and avant-garde! The program include world premieres, world-renowned musicians, visual arts, and a circuit of sound installations in public spaces.
