50th Annual 11-Day Festival Prices Just $105 Canadian Dollars
This year is also the 50th anniversary – in Canada’s 150th year, no less – and the dates are July 6-9 and 10-16. Tickets for the 11-day festival featuring more than 300 events and 1,000 artists are just $105 Canadian, or about $80 USD. Yes, that is the price for the entire festival.
They can be purchased at the event’s official website at: www.infofestival.com.
For some concerts, you don’t even need a ticket, for several events and shows are free.
This year’s lineup includes The Who, 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.
The Who plays Thursday, July 13, at the Bell Stage.
The location of the event is in Québec City on 10 different indoor and outdoor stages including the Bell Stage, 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.
The free 50th anniversary events 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.
And again, all for just about the price of a lawn seat or back-of-the-area ticket at many current concert tours.
