ADDED TO THE LINEUP OF THE 34th EDITION OF THE FMG

Gatineau, August 5th, 2021 - With less than a month to go before the start of the 34th edition of the FMG presented by Loto-Québec in collaboration with Desjardins, the FMG reiterated this morning the details of its lineup, to which has been added, since the July 6 unveiling, the complete list of artists taking part in FouKi's biggest show of the summer: Quiet Mike, Clay and Friends, Vendou, Koriass and Jay Scott, and the latest guest: Alicia Moffet. Featured on La Voix in 2015, she recently released her first album Billie Ave. which has already garnered over 15 million listens on various online platforms. She can also be heard on the hit Ciel... in a duet with FouKi.  Singer Brigitte Boisjoli will join Roxane Bruneau, Marc Dupré, Ludovick Bourgeois and Marjo for the FMG's signature show: Enfin de retour! This show will also showcase the talent of two emerging artists selected at the Regional Finals of Secondaire en spectacle, Laura Beaulieu and Océane Dupont.

 TWO LOCAL RISING STARS ADDED TO THE HYDRO-QUÉBEC MUSICAL MATINEES

Opening acts have been added to the two Hydro-Québec Musical matinees, which will feature the soft piano stylings of Cœur de pirate and the songs of Fred Pellerin at sunrise, amidst a flight of hot air balloons! Selected at the local finals of Cégep en spectacle, pianist and singer Yiqi Chen will present some of her compositions just before Cœur de pirate on Saturday September 4.

Hot air balloons, the queens of the FMG, gradually return!

About fifteen hot air balloons, belonging to balloonists from Ontario and Quebec, will take part in the flights presented during the musical matinees, evening flights and nightly balloon illuminations. Among them, five special shapes will be part of the event:

  • Super FMG
  • She's a hoot! (Owl)
  • BB Tiger
  • Miss Birdy the elephant
  • Bunch of bees

"After a difficult year, this gradual return to normality is like a breath of fresh air for artists, artisans and festival-goers alike. I think we can be proud of our offer at the FMG, which becomes the first event in Quebec to offer a festival experience to more than 5,000 people at a time. Thanks to the new, more user-friendly formula, a lineup that is the envy of all regions, and at one of the lowest ticket prices in the industry in the country, we are very happy to invite Gatineau residents and visitors to take advantage of it," notes Marie-Claude D'Aoust, Programming Director.
