Festival d’Été was founded by the National Bank of Canada (NB) and its Quebec subsidiary, Banque Nationale du Québec.
Festival d’Été is famous for its diverse lineup of music acts that span all genres and generations. The festival is also famous for hosting over 400 artists annually, including international stars as well as local talent from Quebec City.
