More about the festival

Being held since 1968, Festival d'été de Québec (FEQ) is the biggest outdoor musical event in Quebec City, Canada. The 12-day festival takes place every year in July, and its main stage is the biggest self-supporting stage in North America. The festival attracted the biggest crowd in 2015 when The Rolling Stones were the headliners. The first editions of the festival were organized by a group of businesspeople and artists from Quebec City to highlight the artistic, economic, and tourist potential of the region.

The festival has grown through the years and diversified its music to include genres like rock music, punk, hip hop, classical music, world music, and electronic dance music. Numerous international headliners have also graced the stage of the festival.
