From Thursday, July 8, 2021 to Sunday, July 18, 2021 July 8, 2021 July 18, 2021 Auberge Saint-Antoine
The festival has been taking place annually since 1968. First editions were organized by a group of businesspersons and artists of Quebec City in order to show the artistic, economic, and tourist potential of the region. During the 1970s and 1980s, the festival specialized in musicians from the Francophonie and world music.
The festival grew substantially during the last decade after its decision to diversify its music offering and go after international headliners from genres across the board, including rock music, punk, hip-hop, classical music, world music and electronic music. The festival reached the million spectators mark for the first time in 2007 and sold-out passes for the first time in 2010.
This year, the Quebec music scene will be in the spotlight with admission paid shows at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at the Manège militaire, and free programming at Place George-V and Parc de la Francophonie.
