Published May 21, 2014So far in 2014, we've already seen the return of numerous annual festivals, and we've also witnessed the rise of a few new events. This now includes La Grosse Lanterne, which will be coming to Quebec on August 9.
The festival is uniquely situated in the forests of Béthanie, and a press release notes that the site is "located in the triangle formed by Granby, Drummondville and Sherbrooke."
The one-day festival will run from 3 p.m. until late, with performers including Solids, Suuns, Radio Radio, Boogat, Le Trouble, Dead Obies and Alaclair Ensemble. There will also be DJ sets from KenLo Craqnuques (Alaclair Ensemble) and Yes Mccan (Dead Obies), plus a live performance/DJ mashup from Pierre Kwenders and the Posterz.
Local foods and products will be available to buy, and attendees can cook their on meal on supplied barbecues. There will also be a campsite. The grounds will be lit with low-energy equipment, and the festival's goals are "to encourage the purchase of regionally-produced products, to have a minimal environmental footprint and to limit energy consumption."
The event has limited capacity. Early bird tickets cost $45; after these 200 sell out, standard admission will be $59. Tickets are available here.
