Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters Booked for Quebec City Summer Festival

The Festival d’ete de Quebec, one of North America’s biggest, certainly cheapest, and yet largely under-the-radar music festivals, announced the lineup for its 48th edition, with the Rolling Stones, the Foo Fighters, Interpol and Keith Urban among the headliners.

Taking place over 11 days, the fest – also known as the Quebec City Summer Festival – features more than 200 music acts in a variety of venues in the center of Quebec City, with a $70 general pass covering admittance to all of them. The 2015 iteration runs from July 9-19.

Perhaps thanks to its spaced-out performance schedule – the likes of Lollapalooza and Coachella take place over three overstuffed days – the non-profit festival has never attained the media attention of its Stateside fellows, though the acts it attracts are certainly comparable. First held in 1968, the fest began attracting bigger names during the last several decades, and the last few years’ headliners have included Lady Gaga, Metallica, Bruno Mars and Stevie Wonder.

Other acts announced for the 2015 edition range from festival favorites like Future Islands, Run the Jewels and Owen Pallett; to DJs Diplo, Skrillex and Paul Oakenfold; Canadian rock radio mainstays the Tragically Hip and Nickelback; and Francophone acts such as Patrick Bruel, IAM and Vincent Vallieres.
