Summer Music Festival

Description:

This summer music festival is an incredible event that attracts artists from every genre: rap, folk, electronic, rock in all its permutations, and of course the best of the French-speaking world. A pass costs $30 and it provides access to all the outdoor concerts for all 11 days of the festival. Considering that the price of one concert ticket can be well over $30, that's a deal!
