Brome – The New Country wave will sweep through Brome this summer. On July 26th, 27th and 28th, the small municipality will host the very first festival dedicated to the musical genre in the province.
A dozen shows will be offered during the three days. The New Country’s flagship in Quebec Matt Lang, who also acts as spokesperson, will obviously be there. Well-known artists Paul Brandt, The Washboard Union, Tebey, Chase Rice, Meghan Patrick and Aaron Goodvin will also make their turn, as will Sara Dufour and Amelie Hall.
Organized by Shantal Bourdelais and Pierre Poulin – who took charge of programming surrounding the 375th anniversary of Montreal – the event promises to be large. “We want to position ourselves not only as a beautiful regional festival, but also provincial, national and international,” let the producers know at a press conference Thursday morning.
The New Country Brome Festival will take place at the Brome Fair, which will be “sort of like a village where people can spend the weekend, much like they do at Boots and Hearts or at Music in the Fields. “.
Space has been provided for camping and caravanning, and boxes will be available for horses. A saloon will be set up to accommodate the dancers, and several activities will be offered, in addition to food kiosks and street trucks.
