Rock in the spotlight at the FEQ

Rock in honor at the FEQ

Charlotte Cardin opened the 2022 edition of the FEQ last summer.

The programming of the Festival d'été de Québec (FEQ) will appeal to rock fans, thanks in particular to the presence of Green Day, the Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Billy Talent and Weezer. However, the event retains its usual diversity by also offering evenings with Pitbull (pop), Zach Bryan (country), Lana Del Rey (Indie rock), the Trois Accords (carte blanche), Robert Charlebois and the Cowboys Fringuants. The hip-hop evening and ÉlectroFEQ will also be back on July 11 and 12 respectively.

These names will all be headliners on the Plains of Abraham as Coeur de Pirate, Roxane Bruneau, Jessie Reyez, Cypress Hill, Ann Wilson, Christine and the Queens, Lamb of God, Vance Joy, The Smile, Streelight Manifesto and Patrice Michaud will perform on the first stage of the Parc de la Francophonie. On the second stage, festival-goers will notably find Milk & Bone, Bobby Bazini, Stephen Sanchez, Souldia, Les Louanges, Protest the Hero, Feist, Alvvays, Quebec Redneck Bluegrass Project and Jonathan Roy.

Even before the program was unveiled, the FEQ had indicated that the pass would be compulsory for everyone, including children, during the evenings of July 16 on the Plains of Abraham and July 9 and 12 at the Parc de la Francophonie. Strollers will also be prohibited during these evenings.

On Tuesday, the Festival d’été unveiled a video on its social networks where future festival-goers learned about the programming for the 2023 edition before anyone else. Besides exclamations, it was difficult to detect any clue whatsoever on the names of artists who were announced Wednesday noon.

Note also that the sale of regular pass, silver and gold began at the same time as the unveiling of the program, at noon. However, you will have to wait until April 12 for the Zone Signature Bell and Le Jardin sections.
