Québec City’s FEQ festival prepares for another festival season


FEQ is a staple of Québec City’s summer. For 10-11 days the city turns into a platform for music showcases with multiple stages across the Downtown core. With a major city airport less than half an hour away the festival is as accessible as they come, so naturally, people from across Québec and nearby provinces often travel for the event to see their favourite performances, be it a teen crush or a current fascination.

Admittedly, eleven days is a lot, so most people chose 2 to 3 focusing on their favourite headline acts. Last year Pitbull set a record for early maximum capacity at the Planes of Abraham stage, Nervo and Koffee were also there between the up-and-coming acts.

The festival poster for 2024 created some immediate buzz with the headliners spanning from the likes of Nickleback to Post Malone, J Balvin, and 50 Cent there is once again, something for everyone. Among the many names on the roster are also bands like Future Islands and Fleet Foxes, but indie and rock are not all that this showcase is about. Festival goers can curate their own experience focusing on their own genre preferences so if it is electronic music you seek Alan Walker will be there to spearhead those performances.

This year’s lineup garnered immediate attention resulting in general admission passes being sold out in nearly 90 minutes. Eleven days of performances for $150 seems like a no-brainer especially if you live nearby. But don’t you worry, many more passes are still available at For 2024 FEQ team is adding a new free stage so even if you miss out on passes two free stages will open throughout the entire festival.
