Fresh from Boston, where they played the day before, Los Angeles band “Fitz and Tantrums” were one of the festival’s headliners. The group, whose melodies are somewhat reminiscent of the songs of the group “Fun” in Quebec since their appearance with One Republic at the Videotron Center in February 2017, was happy to return after several years.

Relaxed and attentive at the beginning of the show, the quiet and attentive audience became more energetic and motivated by the number’s ninth song, “Help”.

“I love my new friends from a group whose name I don’t remember,” said the Huron-Wendet Nation elder of Wendek.
