Festival d’ete de Quebec

For the past four years, I have made the trip to Quebec City, Canada in mid-July for the largest music festival in North America, Festival dete de Quebec, that no one knows about. Every night for 11 nights the festivals hosts some of the biggest names in music across all genres.  This year headliners included Future, Foo Fighters, The Chainsmokers, Camilla Cabello, Beck, Lorde, Dave Matthews and many more. Each night over 100,000 music fans fill the Plaines of Abraham watching the biggest stage in North America.

This is my one chance each year to actually live inside a music festival. Quebec City is a beautiful city within the walls that surround the city left over from the French/Indian war and most of the festival takes place on several stages in and around the walls of the old city.

The festival is always in July, which provides almost perfect summer weather for those who wish to escape the heat of the lower 48 that can be oppressive that time of year. It is really the perfect summer festival destination for those who prefer a non-camping festival in one of the most welcoming friendly cities in North America.
