After watching diehard fans grab all the tickets to his show at Club Soda within minutes, “LLA” knew he had to double down on his second reunion concert.

The solution: a grandiose spectacle in front of one of its largest crowds, where the curious and the die-hards mixed together. Even Mother Nature was lenient in the early evening to allow the bravest to jump into the mosh pit while staying dry.

The triad took audiences on a chronological epic through their discography, kicking off the ball with the eccentric Outremont. The title Gullywood written in huge letters, in homage to the Hollywood sign, also dominated the Bell stage.

Loud and Lary Kidd both enjoy illustrious solo careers, always counting on the unwavering support of their ace composer Ajust. Their fans, however, will be unanimous: something happens when they are together on a track, and even more so on a stage.

The intoxicating energy of Laurent Fortier-Brassard still marries perfectly with the insolent charisma and presence of Simon Cliche Trudeau. The years have not weakened this happy marriage, which reaches its climax on Gruau and ONO.

Thanks to its four projects spread out between 2012 and 2016, the trio from the Ahuntsic district, in Montreal, took by storm a hip-hop scene that badly needed love. He reminded us of the foundations of the new era of "queb rap" on Candlewood Suites, Heroes or the hilarious James Hyndman Money.

In his last edition at the head of the Francos, Laurent Saulnier once again bet on local hip-hop artists on the biggest stages of the festival site... and we don't blame him!
