Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, Le Festif! returns to Baie-Saint-Paul in Quebec's Charlevoix region from July 18 to 21. Organizers have now announced this year's sprawling lineup of performers from Quebec, greater Canada and the rest of the world.

Hitting the main stage are Half Moon Run, Karkwa, Salebarbes, Julie Aubé, Émile Bilodeau, Québec Bluegrass Project, Galaxie, BoBo OnO and new supergroup Le Roy, La Rose et Le Lou[p], composed of three Festif! favourites (Ariane Roy, Thierry Larose and Lou-Adriane Cassidy).

Dedicated to always offering new features, Le Festif! is focusing on its cultural heritage this year with the introduction of Les jams de l'arrière-pays, which will bring together traditional musicians in various locations across the city. There's also L'espace Promutuel, which will give attendees a chance to unwind in a calm and peaceful environment between performances, and the return of Parvis ICI Musique DJ sets to make for the ultimate gathering place.

Although 45 percent of Le Festif! programming is free and doesn't require tickets, they go on sale this Thursday (April 11) at noon ET. Single event tickets range in price from $15 to $40, while you can access all of the main stage shows with the Passport Desjardins for $103 and enjoy the entirety of the festival with Passport La Totale for $300.
