  • Can children come to the festival?

    Children from 0 to 10 years of age accompanied by an adult don't need passes for general admission, limited to 2 children per adult.

    For security reasons, the pass will be MANDATORY FOR ALL on July 16 on the Plains of Abraham and on July 9 & 12 at Parc de la Francophonie. All children, regardless of age, will be required to wear the wristband and be accompanied by an adult. Strollers will also be prohibited on sites for the same dates.

    Access cards are mandatory for admission to the Gold and Silver Front-Stage Zones, Bell Signature Zone and VIP section for all spectators, regardless of age.

    For the safety and wellbeing of all festivalgoers, the Festival recommends that parents with small children exercise judgment concerning the kind of show presented and the density of the crowd expected on the site before deciding to bring their children. To make it easier for families with strollers to enter the Plains of Abraham, they are asked to use the paved area leading up the hill near the Citadel.

    The parents who come with children should bring HEARING PROTECTION and especially not go towards the MOSH PITS in front of the stage.

    For security considerations, the FEQ could decide for specific shows to require passes regardless of the age, and/or limit access of one child per adult, and/or ban strollers. To find out if this rule applies to the show you want to attend, consult the artist's page.

  • How can I get to the FEQ?

    There are different possibilities for you to come to the Festival. Check our page!

  • Do the shows still go on if it rains?

    Yes. A show could only be cancelled during a thunderstorm or if the safety of the people onsite is in danger. Ponchos are sold for $5 at the bars and checkrooms.


  • Can I buy general admission passes for the Festival?

    General admission passes for next year's edition are sold out.

    Passes can only be purchased directly on our official website. BEWARE OF RESALE SITES!

    The FEQ is not responsible for purchases made on other websites.

  • Are there day passes on sale?

    No. The FEQ concept is one pass that is good for all shows in general admission.

    The only option to buy a ticket for one night is in Le Jardin zone.

  • Is my place guaranteed at all shows in general admission?

    No. The capacity of our sites ranges between 7 500 people and 90 000, this is why the FEQ cannot guarantee acces to all shows.

    It is advised to come early to the shows you want to see.

    To ensure safety on all sites, the FEIQ keeps the right to take appropriate decision, such as limit access on sites.

    Bell signature Zone, le Jardin, Gold and Silver Front-Stage Zone owners, have a guaranteed access to all shows on Bell stage of plains of Abraham. This privilege does not apply to other sites.

  • Are there VIP passes on sale?

    No, VIP passes are not on sale. Only Gold and Silver Front Stage Zones cards and Bell Signature Zone cards and le Jardin are available to the public.
