Les Cowboys Fringants
Friday 3 September
The FMG - Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival is proud to welcome les Cowboys Fringants for its 34th edition on the Casino Lac-Leamy Stage. This year, they are releasing their tenth album of original songs, Les antipodes.
Wherever they go, Marie-Annick, Jean-François, Jérôme and Karl continue to stir up the crowds. The group is staying the course with 10 new songs, still as powerful as ever, the result of more than twenty years of a decidedly phenomenal career.
Les antipodes, like a Polaroid snapshot of today's world, represents a society driven by extremes, torn apart by visions that are often completely at odds.
Les Cowboys Fringants have sold more than 1,300,000 albums and have gained a broad audience over the span of their career. The group has not only distinguished itself in Quebec with 5 Felix awards at the last ADISQ Gala, including Song of the Year and Group of the Year, but also in Canada with 2 JUNO nominations, including one for the coveted Fan Choice Award.
