Published May 28, 2013The 46th edition of Quebec City's Festival d'été de Québec has a pretty diverse roster full of big-name headliners, but organizers have now announced that they will close out the event with one of the most iconic soul and R&B artists ever: Stevie Wonder.
A press release confirms that Wonder will make his way to Quebec City for the first time ever on July 14 to headline the Bell Stage on the Plains of Abraham. To say the least, organizers are thrilled to have the music icon on board for the Festival d'été de Québec.
"We're just so proud that he chose Quebec City, especially since his live performances are rare," programming director Louis Bellavance said in a statement. "We wanted a big name to bring out the crowds for the last night of the event and we can say mission accomplished! Stevie Wonder is hugely popular with audiences of all ages."
On top of Wonder's festival closing performance, other celebrated artists appearing at the Plains of Abraham between July 4 and 14 include Rush, the Black Keys, the Wu-Tang Clan, Wiz Khalifa, Classified, MGMT, Father John Misty, Belle & Sebastian, Les Trois Accords, Bruno Mars, Ellie Goulding, Austra, A Tribe Called Red, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Diamond Rings, Bad Religion, Weezer, Passion Pit, Tiesto, and more.
