Rage Against the Machine to perform at Festival d’Été de Québec in 2022

They'll be performing on July 16th, 2022

Festival d’Été de Québec has locked in its first act for their 2022 festival: Rage Against the Machine!

After their 2020 show was cancelled, the legendary band is set to perform at the Bell Stage on the Plains of Abraham on Saturday, July 16th. This will mark their return to Quebec after 25 years, and their first appearance ever in Québec City.

“This is excellent and very timely news for music fans,” Festival d’été de Québec director of programming Louis Bellavance says in a statement. “Following the challenges our industry has faced since 2020, this very first RATM stopover on the Plains will definitely be a great moment, both in the history of the FEQ and for the revival of our industry.”

The 53rd edition of FEQ will take place from July 7th to 17th, 2022.

Festival d’été de Québec is hoping to take place from July 8th to 18th, 2021, but is awaiting further guidance from authorities.
