If you haven’t visited Quebec City’s biggest annual music festival, we can’t recommend it any more. Each summer, the Festival D’Êté takes over the entire city for more than a week, and it’s an incredible experience: Superstars play in front of thousands at the Plains of Abrahams. Francophone acts play on stages lining Quebec City’s cobblestoned streets. Emerging acts play intimate club shows. And it’s an amazing reason to take time off work.
The Festival’s programming, is usually diverse, too: They’ll usually pull in several A-listers of yore, a few at-current festival headliners, and a host of international and independent acts. And 2015 is no different: Today, they unveiled their poster, revealing that the festival will be headlined by the Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Iggy Azalea, Jack Ü, Deep Purple, and French hip-hop act Iam.
And there’s plenty of depth, even beyond the headliners: Future Islands, the Tragically Hip (of course), Run the Jewels, Viet Cong, METZ, Anti-Flag, and Black Lips are all on hand. Impressed? You should be. Check the festival’s poster below.
