    Free Concerts
    The free concerts staged at the Parc de l’Université du Québec will offer diversity as well as a chance to make great new discoveries. Throughout the three days of the festival, from noon until nighttime, the park will welcome a number of extremely talented local artists.

    These concerts will begin on Thursday around 11:30 am with I.No, followed by Jah and I at 5:00 pm. On Friday, the Parc de l’Université de Québec will host Van de Kamp, a Quebec City-based francophone alternative rock group, as well as Les Handclaps, an electro-pop-yéyé trio that will have the crowd dancing with its 50’s rock-inspired electro music. Weak Size Fish, a reggae-rock group originally from New Brunswick, will then kick off the final day of this first edition of free concerts.

    Be there, from September 9th to 11th, for this 15th edition of the Envol et Macadam Festival
