    Wednesday September 9th 2009

    Quebec City, September 9, 2009—Envol et Macadam organizers are kicking off the festival with a 14th edition that stands out for its exciting, bold, and highly varied lineup.

The same evening, Diaspora, Bslow, and Daron will heat up the Première Ovation stage for Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall. The Exo stage will be home to shows by Hold Up, Punch Out, Sons of Disgrace, Beneath the Massacre, Tagada Jones, and Sick of it All.

    And that same evening the springboard contest Envole-toi pour Liverpool! will be held at Cercle with Millimetrik, Mashup Potatos, Sorehead, and Ultra.

    The festival continues on September 11 and 12 with a myriad of headliners including Julian “Ju Ju” Marley, The Sounds, Punk Rock Karaoke, Bad Religion, Alexisonfire, and Sinik—who will be signing autographs September 12 between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. at the Niké Laos store (864 rue Commerciale, St-Jean-Chrysostome).
