Since June 2009, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has a new concert venue at its disposal: L'Astral. This intimate space is ideal for presenting the best concerts throughout the year. With 350 cabaret-style seating capacity and 600 standing capacity, a configuration that offers spectators optimal viewing and an intimate setting - according to the blueprint of principal architect Éric Gauthier - a meticulous acoustic design courtesy of Guy Desmarteaux of Go Multimédia, and an ideal location (at the corner of Ste. Catherine St. and the new Place des Festivals), L'Astral has already become a major destination in the Quartier des spectacles. Along with offering state-of-the-art stage technology to artists from around the world, the venue has quickly become a favourite thanks to its user-friendly live TV and webcasting facilities.
