As announced on April 5, the festival will also welcome rappers Lil Yachty (USA) and Skepta (UK), as well as Montreal artist collective Moonshine with singer-songwriter Nigerian Ayra Starr.
These three outdoor concerts will take place during the weekend of June 10 to 12 in a second zone, located a few steps from the Bonaventure metro station and downtown arteries.
