Quebec Summer Festival: Up to 10,000 visitors on the plains

Starting Thursday, all of Quebec will vibrate to the rhythm of its summer festival: until July 14, you can see Post Malone, Motley Crue, Nickelback and 50 Cent march in the Plains of Abraham more than in previous years.

why Because the organizers moved the stage back a few meters, freeing up a huge space in front of it.

The decision comes a year after the venue was closed twice after being hit by massive crowds during concerts by Imagine Dragons and Pitbull.

This information was given by the programmer Luis Pelavans in an interview with the newspaper Polestar. “There will be great potential in the core sector. It was already 90,000 and we can get another 5,000 to 10,000.

Variable maximum capacity

During an interview NewspaperOn Wednesday, he clarified that the maximum capacity varies depending on the concerts.

“What we want is never to close the door. Is the number 95,000 or 100,000? It’s case by case. It depends on the movement of the crowd and the stage arrangements. Do we have a second stage in a community that can accommodate 10,000 people?

One thing is for sure, says Luis Bellavance, “It is clear that we have more space than last year”.

Post Malan, King of Pyro

According to Alain Gagnon, general manager of FEQ, many artists will captivate the eyes and ears, especially Post Malone.

Post to Malone at Bonnaroo in June.


“It’s going to be something people remember a lot because there’s going to be a lot of pyrotechnics and it’s going to go well with the music,” he says.

Rapper 50 Cent comes with an exciting and varied visual that will focus on pyrotechnics, lasers and flames.

DJ Alan Walker’s performance will feature Alain Gagnon, Anal Gagnon, during an electro evening, while Latin singer J Balvin will make an “extraordinary appearance”.

North American leader

Thanks to hydraulic hanging technology developed by Stageline, performers and festival-goers will discover three new oversized LED screens that FEQ was able to install this year.

“We are positioning ourselves as a North American leader,” maintains Luis Bellavance.

He hopes these technological innovations, like the creation of an artist village where stars and their crews can socialize, will allow the festival to become even more attractive to big headliners.

“This is a significant improvement. I think it will go around the industry. It gives us a significant competitive advantage.
