News releases | June 8, 2021

 

Gatineau - It is with unbridled enthusiasm that the FMG team unveils the first headliner for its 34th edition! Les Cowboys Fringants will be on the Casino Lac-Leamy Stage on Friday, September 3rd for one of their only festival shows of the summer! This iconic Québec band is certainly the one that touches the largest audience with its huge repertoire of hits.

Les Cowboys Fringants have sold over 1,300,000 albums worldwide, won five Félix awards at the last ADISQ Gala, including Song of the Year and Group of the Year, and have been nominated for two JUNO Awards, including the coveted Fan Choice Award. During their last epic visit to Parc de la Baie in 2017, Patrice Bélanger, spokesperson, found himself, body surfing with bassist Jérome Dupras...

"With the Parc de la Baie, we are lucky to have one of the biggest playgrounds in Quebec. We all need to let off some steam, in a safe and sanitary environment. That's what we'll be doing from September 2nd to 6th. And who better than les Cowboys Fringants to set the tone for this collective and festive revelry that we will all experience together during the 34th Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival presented by Loto-Québec in collaboration with Desjardins! " says Executive Director Sandra Cloutier.

Like the vast majority of events in Quebec, sanitary measures in place restrict us from selling passports this year. We will therefore offer a festive and safe experience, with single tickets for each show.

Details of the proposed formula will follow soon. The programme, full schedule and sale dates for tickets will be announced as soon as the health plan is approved by Public Health.

From September 2nd to 6th, 2021, our pilots will reignite their burners, our technicians will switch on the stage lights and the entire organizing committee will be waiting with open arms (from a distance of 2 meters, of course) to welcome you to the Parc de la Baie!
