Music & Artists Event Turns Quebec City, Canada Into A Summertime Party
Yes, the music’s all right and it’s no teenage wasteland.
The Who is playing Thursday, July 13 at the primary Bell Stage. Tickets are just $105 Canadian, or about $80 USD. And that price is not just for The Who; it’s for the entire 11-day, two-weekend-plus festival. Festival tickets can be purchased on the event’s official website at: www.infofestival.com.
There are also walk-up tickets available at the box office, but obviously you’ll want to snag them in advance to be sure you get in to see The Who. Some events at the festival are free (keep reading).
Festival d’été de Québe takes place July 6-9 and 10-16 and also features Pink, Gorillaz, Nick Jonas, Death From Above 1979, P!NK, Kendrick Lamar, Metallica, Muse, Backstreet Boys, Kelsea Ballerini, DNCE, Melissa Etheridge, Flume, Lady Antebellum, Migos, Pink Martini, The Strumbellas and Fetty Wap Featuring Monty.
Additionally, there are several free events for the event’s 50th anniversary. They include Plasticiens Volants, a fantastical parade of giant puppets floating overhead through the streets; concerts by L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres playing on instruments hand-made from recycled materials; the Transe Express street theater troupe of trapeze artists, acrobats, and an opera singer who perform while hanging from a colossal mobile; and 50 Summers of FEQ, a curated, multi-media exhibition of mementos from the Festival’s archives.
It all takes place on 10 indoor and outdoor stages in the center of Québec City, about an hour south of Montreal. The main Bell Stage, where The Who is performing, is Canada’s largest and one of the biggest in North America, located in an historic battlefield park overlooking the St. Lawrence River.
The music ranges from rock to punk, hip-hop, jazz, folk, electronic, and francophone music.
