Festival d’été de Québec has officially been cancelled because of the spread of COVID-19.
The festival, which was set to take place from July 9th to 19th, would have seen performances from renowned acts like CHVRCHES, Alt-J, Blink-182, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and more. Now, given the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus pandemic, the FEQ teams have decided to put the safety of its festival goers and employees first.

“This situation saddens us very much, but the health of all is our priority,” FEQ Director General Anne Hudson explains. “We support the government in its management of this unprecedented crisis. We can only salute the measures deployed, which will allow us to reunite with our festival goers, in good health, in 2021. We are dealing with unfortunate circumstances that no one could have predicted and whose repercussions are felt at every level of our organization. With its major economic impacts and its power of mobilization for the region, we are convinced that the FEQ will be part of the solution for reviving the economy in Québec in the aftermath of the crisis.”
All festival goers will be reimbursed within 30 days for General Admission passes, Zone Front Stage cards, and Bell Signature Zone cards.
