Quebec Summer Festival: “It was an obstacle course”

<p> DAY </p>
<p><strong>An unexpected wave of COVID-19, chaos at airports and labor shortages ultimately did not prevent tens of thousands of people from gathering each evening in front of the stages of the Festival d'été de Québec (FEQ) over the past 12 days.</strong></p>
<p>A few hours before the closing concert of Half Moon Run on the Plains of Abraham this Sunday, the leaders of the FEQ gave the usual positive assessment of the event.</p>

DJ Marshmello brought together several revelers during the electro evening.

As usual, the Summer Festival did not share the attendance figures on the Plains, but we can safely say that the concerts of Rage Against The Machine, Maroon 5, Luke Combs and Marshmello were the most popular.

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine loved his experience on the Plains so much he said he wants to come back next year.

The second scene

One of the major challenges for the FEQ remains its second set of concerts.

Turned away due to a lack of space at the Parc de la Francophonie, several festival-goers were unable to attend the performances of Three Days Grace, Sum 41 and Milky Chance.

According to Anne Hudon, it is possible that the work in progress at Place George-V will be completed in time for the FEQ to recover this space in 2023.

“It is not confirmed, but it is possible. We will find out in the fall,” she said.

If this is the case, the festival would like to recreate its double stage which was planned for 2020 and which, by installing a stage at Place George-V and one at Parc de la Francophonie, to present shows alternately in front of a crowd of up to 25,000 people.

“It is our wish, but it will take validate with the City,” says Ms. Hudon.

Otherwise, Ms. Hudon believes it is possible to make certain changes to the Parc de la Francophonie in order to bring in a few more festival-goers.
