Quebec City Summer Festival's 2014 line-up boasts numerous big name headliners like Billy Joel, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Bryan Adams, Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age, Journey and many more. Though big names usually mean equally large ticket prices, the Festival d’été de Québec (FEQ), which runs from July 3 - July 11, continues to offer their 11-day festival pass for an extremely small cost - just $78 CAD - including all fees and taxes.
FEQ keeps the pass price affordable for any budget by appealing to as broad an audience base as possible. Festival goers in 2014 can enjoy performances from a diverse range of artists such as Juno winning progressive-house artist Deadmau5, rap superstar Snoop Dog, Grammy-winning bluesman Gary Clark Jr., punk pioneers Blondie, folk rocker Father John Misty and veteran acid rockers The Steve Miller Band.
The FEQ lineup also offers a wide range of home-grown stars from across the provinces like Canadian Walk of Famer Daniel Lanois, multi-Juno winners Serena Ryder, Louis-Jean Cormier and Sam Roberts Band, as well as multi-Maple Blues Award winner Matt Andersen and multi-platinum selling rockers Three Days Grace. There are plenty of international acts on this year's bill as well, including: Italian electro-house artists The Bloody Beetroots, Ivorian reggae star Tiken Jah Fakoly, British prog-rockers Marillion, Nigerian Afro-beat artist Seun Kuti, as well as Montpellier, France born trip-hop artist Émilie Simon.
Founded in 1968, Quebec City Summer Festival has grown into Canada's largest outdoor music event. FEQ offers over 300 performances in 10 unique indoor and outdoor venues, most located within walking distance of each other in the city's historic and picturesque downtown area.
