Baie-Saint-Paul: let's go for the Festive!

After an edition presented in a different configuration due to COVID, downtown Baie-Saint-Paul will vibrate again during the 13th edition of the Festif! which will be launched tomorrow with Bran Van 3000 and the French formation Polo

A few hours before the first shows, the general and artistic director Clément Turgeon feels a certain excitement.

"This feeling of invading the city, it was really missing last year with several scenes that had been put aside", he launched.

An edition which will continue until Sunday and which will feature Salebarbes, Death From Above 1976, SUUN, Bon Enfant, Gros Mené, Loud, Lisa LeBlanc, Lou-Adriane Cassidy, Les Louanges, Le Québec Redneck Bluegrass Project, Diane Tell and others.

The French formation L'Impératrice, which was one of the big catches of the Festif!, had to cancel its performance due to a case of COVID.

She was replaced by the Verdun collective Clay and Friends and brought in a promotion for Hubert Lenoir which will be featured Friday night on the main stage.

Asked about the must-see shows of this 13th edition, Clément Turgeon admits to having a weakness for favorites from elsewhere and for artists that people know less about.

“There is the Texan collective Golden Dawn Arkestra, Friday evening, at the MicroBrasserie Charlevoix Stage, L'Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp from Switzerland, who will give two shows, and the group Daddy Long Legs from New York and their blues- quite crazy garage which will be really cool to discover, this evening, at the end of the evening, at the Garage du Curé, ”he pointed out.

Free shows

Clément Turgeon specifies that these three shows are free.

“There is free programming where you can find little gems of programming. It's worth lingering over. There is something for everyone,” he said.

After canceling his planned visit in 2018, Bran Van 3000 will perform tonight at 8 p.m. at Place Desjardins to mark the 25th anniversary of the album Glee.

First visit

This will be the first visit for James Di Salvio and his gang to the small Charlevoix municipality.

“Everyone says this event is special. It looks like, on a smaller scale, the Coachella Festival where people have to travel to attend this event. They leave the city to experience something special and with the magic of nature. I can’t wait to find out,” he said in a telephone interview.

Back on stage after seven years of absence, the group that produced the hit Drinking in LA is experiencing a joy that the Bran Man Di Salvio describes as total after a few concerts. “We can not ask for more,” he said, adding that the formation intended to make the Festive dance! “It is our reason for being. »
