Joelle Bertrand

Talent Buyer,
Montreal, QC, Canada
Joëlle Bertrand is talent buyer for evenko, the most important independent promoter and producer in Canada. She mainly works on club shows and evenko's festivals: Osheaga and Heavy MTL, both presented every year in Montreal. Joelle is also in charge of booking evenko's new club venue, the Corona Theatre (cap 800).

Joelle Bertrand always knew she wanted to become a talent buyer. Back in high school, she would book shows to be presented in her school and continued to book local acts when she went to college. She attended a show management program at the Montreal Show Business School. In 2007 Joelle moved to Toronto to intern at The Agency Group working alongside Jack Ross and Adam Countryman. After 1 year at the Agency Group she was recruited by Nick Farkas from evenko (formerly Gillet Entertainment Group) in Montreal to assist with the company booking tasks. She gradually made her way up in the company and 4 years later she is now one of evenko's main talent buyer.
