“For the rental of technical equipment, you have to plan months in advance. The same goes for the workforce,” says programming director Dominique Goulet.

Fortunately, she notes, Cigale can count on the resources of Quebec Sport and Entertainment Group.

"It's an obstacle course, but we'll get there. »

The organization of Cigale revealed today all the details of the food offer and the activities that will be offered during the two days of the festival, August 6 and 7.

10,000 people are expected for this event which will feature Portugal, The Man, Kaleo and Kim Churchill. The artists were chosen based on the musical orientation of Cigale, which wants to install a laid-back California-style atmosphere on the beach.

This means that punk or metal groups have little chance of finding a place in the grid of Cigale, which wishes to become an annual meeting.

“On the other hand, we still cast a wide net. We can go into pop and a certain form of electro, maybe not heavy house, but something in the style of Polo and Pan or Rüfüs Du Sol, ”says Dominique Goulet.

That said, the festival is called upon to evolve. It would be surprising, says Ms. Goulet, if the organizers moved the two stages from the beach, where they will be erected, to the grass section of the site, but, for the rest, "everything will be put on the table" during the assessment of the first edition.
