With over 200 artists performing on five stages over the course of eleven days, FEQ offers a smorgasbord that can entice any kind of music lover. Fans of stadium-sized rock music can enjoy stalwarts like Foo Fighters, recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Green Day, Imagine Dragons, and Quebecois icons Les Cowboys Fringants and Les Trois Accords, while Lamb of God and Bad Religion offer a harder alternative. Lana Del Rey, The Smile, and Feist appeal to the Indie crowd, along with acts like The War On Drugs, Alvvays, and Sasketchewan singer-songwriter Andy Shauf. Hip-Hop heads can turn up to the likes of Lil Durk, GloRilla, and Cypress Hill, or Canadian emcees bbno$ and Killy. Ascendant superstar Zach Bryan leads the country contingent, which also features Megan Moroney and the province’s own Quebec Redneck Bluegrass Project. Pitbull and Illennium promise high-energy tunes for dancing, and Christine & The Queens offer some refined pop music for the French-speaking audience. Other notable names include Ann Wilson (formerly of Heart), Quebec’s Robert Charlebois, and exciting up-and-comers like Sudan Archives and Meet Me At The Altar.

The summer festival makes use of The Plains of Abraham, one of the most notable historical sites in Canada, where, in 1759, the British and French fought a decisive battle in the Seven Years’ War. Now, hundreds of years later with Canada’s fate in its own hands, the Plains of Abraham is the location of the FEQ’s main stage, with a capacity of over 80,000. With its multi-day, multi-venue structure and the full-fledged involvement of the surrounding city, FEQ is the closest North American analog to European city festivals like the UK’s Wireless Festival, Spain’s Primavera Sound, or Denmark’s Roskilde. Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, Quebec City is the closest thing to a European city within driving distance, and fans who don’t feel like road tripping can take one of 21 direct flights to the YQB airport.
