Les Cowboys Fringants | Saturday, June 14 at 9 pm: W 7th Avenue @ Granville Street

The Cowboys Fringants need no introduction!! With a real cult following in Quebec, these four musicians (Jérôme Dupras, Marie-Annick Lépine, Jean-François Pauzé, Karl Tremblay) with their zany humour promise once again to bring us a wild show that breaks away from conventions. Their audiences are getting bigger all the time, captivated by songs that can be funny, provocative or nostalgic, in a subtle alchemy of rock music and traditional Quebecois folk.
Since 1997, these fun and wacky artists have been performing across Canada and Europe with hits like “Toune d’automne”, “Les Étoiles Filantes” and “En berne” in their baggage. They have filled the Bell Centre to the rafters for two concerts and their albums Break Syndical, Attache ta Tuque and la Grande Messe have sold over 500,000 copies. Nominated several times for awards at the ADISC Festival, the Cowboys Fringants won the Felix prize for Group of the Year, as well as for the best pop song with “Les étoiles filantes”. Their rising stardom is not about to wane!
Don’t miss this unique concert in the Festival d’été!

Bruno Pelletier et le GrosZorchestre | Saturday, June 14 at 7 pm : W 7th Avenue @ Granville Street

For over 20 years, Bruno Pelletier has been making waves on the concert scene around the world. It’s no surprise. He’s a singer and an accomplished musician, a huge star in Quebec, the winner of 15 Felix awards in the course of his career, and his enchanting mellow voice still goes straight to our hearts and souls. The Festival d’été will be your chance to hear his latest album Bruno Pelletier et le GrosZorchestre, a unique recording with accents of pop-jazz, that brings back some all-time favourites in English and in French as well as some of the artist’s own hits from the past.
Bruno Pelletier is, first and foremost, a sublime singer and one of the most talented francophone artists of his generation. His great versatility and his passion for the stage have made it possible for him to seamlessly reconcile a prolific career as a solo performer and some famous musicals like “La légende de Jimmy”, “Starmania”, “Notre-Dame de Paris” and “Dracula – Entre l’amour et la mort”.

This show promises to be an intimate and unpretentious performance that is fun and emotionally rich!
