Percé: Festi-Plage Cap-d'Espoir
Imagine a performance stage facing the sea. The crowd of spectators gathers on the beach and, with feet in the sand, sings and dances to the sound of their favorite bands. There is another reason why the Festi-Plage Cap-D'Espoir attracts crowds. In addition to music, the schedule includes a host of family activities for Sunday, to enjoy the seaside to the maximum. It is a music festival the Gaspésie way! From July 26 to 29, 2023.

Festival en chanson, Petite-Vallée
Deploying in a mythical place recognized for the close proximity between the public and the artists, the Festival en chanson welcomes more than 15,000 festival-goers annually. It takes place this summer in two huge marquees: one in Petite-Vallée, on the edge where the Théâtre de la Vieille Forge was located, by the sea, and the other in Grande-Vallée. A talent finder, the Festival will introduce you to promising emerging artists and great talents in Quebec song. From July 28 to August 5, 2023.

Festival Musique du Bout du Monde, Gaspé
It is true that the Festival Musique du Bout du Monde is an urban festival with its shows under a big top and the lively Rue de la Reine. But its show at sunrise in Cap Bon-Ami, while the Forillon cliffs and the sea gradually turn orange, makes it a must in the summer. Magic moments and chills guaranteed. From August 10 to 13, 2023.
