• A first evening marked by diversity!

    Friday September 11th 2009

    Quebec City, September 11, 2009—Great weather and ecstatic festival-goers contributed to a wildly successful first evening of Envol et Macadam’s 14th edition, which boasted more than 3,000 attendees.

    Electronic music fans enjoyed a feast for the eyes and ears with a high-powered performance by Chromeo. Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishal got the crowd dancing with his reggae and hip-hop beats, and hardcore fans were not left out thanks to off-the-wall New York band Sick of It All.

    The festival continues today beginning at 6:00 p.m. Julian “Ju Ju” Marley will follow in the footsteps of his famous father, delighting festival-goers with his warm and sunny reggae sound. Montreal band Winter Gloves will be the opening act. Punk Rock Karaoke will hit the Exo stage with a one-of-a-kind, interactive show that’s not to be missed! Meanwhile, over at the Première Ovation stage, Swedish group The Sounds will perform for the first time in Quebec. Also lined up are Zebra Zone, I.No, Foxy Shazam, The Cougarettes, As Fall Comes, Still Insane, and Guttermouth.

    And that same evening at Cercle the springboard contest Envole-toi pour Tokyo! will be held with The Skopitones, Muted Screams, Molly’s Decline, and The Hunters.
