Étoiles du métro

The STM, proud partner of the arts

Making your transit rides more enjoyable while showcasing new talent was the goal prompting us to launch our “Étoiles du métro” program in 2012. Each year, musicians wishing to take part in the program audition for access to the seven transit system locations reserved exclusively for “Étoiles” or “Star” musicians. The STM and the Regroupement des musiciens du métro de Montréal regularly promote these artists, both in the métro and at major events around Montréal.


Interested in having your light shine in the métro?

Auditions are over for now… come back next year!
