THE FESTIVAL D’ETE DE QUEBEC BREAKS NEW GROUND FOR COUNTRY MUSIC

KEITH URBAN BECOMES FIRST COUNTRY ARTIST TO PLAY THE HISTORIC FOUR-DECADE OLD FESTIVAL

Paul McCartney, Sting, Lady Gaga, Rush, Billy Joel, have all taken to the main stage at the Festival De Quebec, as will The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Doobie Brothers and Iggy Azalea over the next ten days. But the highlight of the Festival for country music fans was thehistoric main stage performance by Keith Urban who, on Friday night, broke a four-decade old country music drought when he became the first county artist to perform at the historic festival.

“We honestly had no idea of what to expect when Mr. Urban arrived here in Quebec,” said Louis Bellavance, programming director of the festival. “We were hoping that our fans would be ready for country but it was somehow a blind date for lots of them. But his unbelievable performance, professionalism and graciousness, were not only beyond all expectation, they showed us why Country music is so popular. It was a first for the Festival d’été de Québec, but thanks to Keith Urban, we’ll have country music again for the years to come on our main stage!”

“It was a huge honor to have been invited to Quebec to play the historic Le Festival d’ete de Quebec,” said Urban. “It was a phenominal experience – the power, energy and love from the crowd was beyond anything I could’ve imagined happening. I so hope that we get to do it again.”
