FEQ 2024: Post Malone, 50 Cent, J Balvin and

Jonas Brothers to Take the Plains of Abraham by Storm

Quebec City, March 20, 2024 – From July 4 to 14, Quebec City will host some of the biggest names in music, including Post Malone, 50 Cent, Jonas Brothers, J Balvin, Nickelback, Mötley Crüe, The Offspring, Rise Against, Alexandra Stréliski, The Zac Brown Band, Alan Walker, Loud Luxury and many more! The Festival d'été de Québec (FEQ) has prepared a highly diverse musical lineup promising to cater to all tastes. The 56th edition will feature its share of surprises, including an additional stage for even more music.

“This year, we're offering several new features, starting with the reintroduction of Place D'Youville, a historic venue cherished by festival-goers that we're returning to in a different capacity. The FEQ will thus have two free stages: Place D'Youville and the Hydro-Québec Stage at Place de l'Assemblée-Nationale, which contributes to enhancing the fan experience and making our festival even more accessible” announced Nicolas Racine, CEO of BLEUFEU. “We have many more surprises in store for you, including a collaboration with the Grand Théâtre de Québec, improvements to our sites, and other innovations”.

“We are extremely proud of this incredibly diverse lineup, powered by the current pop sensations, the Jonas Brothers, and the immense Post Malone, for his only announced Canadian concert this year, as well as the presence of the legendary rapper 50 Cent. Rock enthusiasts will not be disappointed with three explosive nights, not to mention country, electronic, francophone, and even neo-classical performances by Alexandra Stréliski. This edition will also allow us to offer a large-scale Latin evening featuring J Balvin and Ivan Cornejo, a Canadian exclusive. The depth of this lineup will satisfy fans from all backgrounds, from emerging talent at Place d’Youville to the rich undercards on all stages. It's a lineup that stands out from the overall 2024 offering and remains faithful to our artistic direction. We can't wait to share it with festival-goers!" says Louis Bellavance, VP of Content and Artistic Direction at BLEUFEU.

It should be noted that tickets for these series of shows must be purchased separately, as the FEQ pass will not grant access. They will be available for sale individually through the regular box office of the Grand Théâtre de Québec when the program is unveiled.

Community-Building Initiative: A Portion of the FEQ Pass to Combat Social Isolation

In an effort to give back to the local communities hosting its events, BLEUFEU is launching the Community-Building initiative " The Gathering Effect." As part of this initiative, $0.50 per FEQ pass will be donated to organizations whose mission contributes to combating social isolation. It's no surprise that the phenomenon of social isolation has intensified with the pandemic, even as aid networks contend with a decrease in donations. Partnering with causes that help combat isolation is a natural avenue for BLEUFEU, whose mission is to bring people together around festive events. BLEUFEU plans to extend this donation model to all of its assets.

Sustainable FEQ in partnership with Rio Tinto

The FEQ is a festival that seeks to reduce its ecological footprint by all means. We are proud to have been carbon-neutral since 2014, meaning that the greenhouse gas emissions generated by the event are offset through the organization Planetair. The Festival pays special attention to recycling: every intact can placed in a blue bin follows the right path: first sorted, then washed and deposited by a dedicated recycling team at our integrated sorting center on our sites. In addition, the FEQ promotes sustainable mobility through its partnership with the RTC, as well as by providing bicycle parking at Desjardins sites. Add to that the creation of a Good Festivalgoer Guide, which proposes a series of green actions aimed at minimizing the ecological impact of attendees' visits.


BLEUFEU, event organizer and show promoter, delivers festive and inspiring experiences including the Festival d'été de Québec (FEQ), Toboggan - New Year's Eve Parties, and St-Roch XP, as well as presenting hundreds of shows throughout the year at the Impérial Bell and Grizzly Fuzz. This new umbrella brand oversees the various existing NPOs, which are already industry references for the quality of their productions. It has over sixty permanent employees and recruits nearly 500 contractors every year, as well as hundreds of volunteers. To learn more, visit
