July 19th________________________________________________________________________________2022

Gatineau – The opening night of the 35th Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival will be a festive one, as Les Louanges and Les Trois Accords take to the Casino Lac-Leamy Stage on Thursday, September 1st! Starting at 5 pm, the Parc de la Baie site will open its doors and allow festival-goers to discover the new amenities, including the Chill Zone, a sandy area with hammocks and oversized games, all located near the food concessions and food trucks. The food trucks will offer a full range of food from gourmet poutines to paninis and churros to start the evening off right!

Les Louanges

Just back from Europe, where he played at the Francofolies de La Rochelle and the Dour Festival in Belgium, Les Louanges will be playing at Osheaga and the Festif de Baie St-Paul before heading to the Casino Lac-Leamy Stage at the FMG in Gatineau at 7 pm on September 1st. A busy summer for this undeniably talented songwriter whose songs "Pitou", "La nuit est une panthère" and "Crash" are a perfect accompaniment to the warm evenings of the summer.

Les Trois Accords

While the Beaucoup de plaisir tour continues throughout Quebec, it is in Gatineau at 8:30 pm that Les Trois Accords will offer the only performance of the anniversary concert J'aime ENCORE ta grand-mère fête ses 10 ans! Accompanied for this great celebration by FouKi & QuietMike and Marilyne Léonard, the show will revisit all the hits from this cult album released in 2012, including "Personne préférée", "Les amoureux qui s'aiment", "Bamboula" and "Retour à l'institut".
