Below is the official News Release with lots of detail:

Québec City, Wednesday, March 29, 2017

One of the greatest rock bands of all time, The Who, and the delightfully original Gorillaz virtual band members will be headlining the 50th Festival d’été de Québec along with Kendrick Lamar,   P!nk,   Metallica and Muse. More than 100 new names have been added to the 50 released earlier this month, including pop star Nick Jonas and the Canadian indie rock duo Death from Above 1979.

“Québec is known as a rock music town and this genre is almost a FEQ trademark. So we needed to lay on the rock for our 50th. After Paul McCartney, in Québec for its 400th anniversary in 2008, The Rolling Stones, who came to the Festival in 2015, we are especially pleased to bring a leader of the “British Invasion”, the legendary band The Who, to Québec for the very first time. This is musical history in the making!” said general manager Daniel Gélinas.

If you want to see The Who this summer, plan on coming to the FEQ, the only festival anywhere in Canada they’ll be playing, for the July 13 opening show of their farewell tour. Ever since 1964, they’ve shaped the entire rock music scene with hits like My Generation, Pinball Wizard, Baba O’Riley, Won’t Get Fooled Again or I Can See for Miles and with their many albums.

As for Gorillaz, this will be their first time in town and their only show in Québec. The British band, expertly directed by Damon Albarn (Blur), brings out its fifth album, Humanz, in late April. A one-of-a-kind musical performance and experience to put on your agenda for July 15.

News that the Backstreet Boys were playing the Festival has sparked quite a buzz. Jonas Brothers fans are in for an awesome evening on Sunday, July 9, with actor, singer and multi-instrumentalist Nick Jonas of “Jealous” fame opening. And in one of her few 2017 shows, pop diva P!nk is sure to draw huge crowds on Saturday, July 8, while multiple Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar will give his first Festival appearance, and only show in Québec, on July 7.

FEQ 2016 Emerging Artist award winners the Dead Obies are opening for this paragon of hip-hop. Country pop fans will be giving a warm welcome to Lady Antebellum, winners of 10 Academy of Country Music awards, onstage with rising star Kelsea Ballerini on July 10, with Gabrielle Shonk opening the show.

Folk takes centre stage with the Cowboys Fringants and Lisa LeBlanc, who’s slated to kick off the show on July 11. Expect both to show up with lots of friends.

Local metal bands Voivod and Metalord has been tapped to warm up the crowd at the Bell Stage for an iconic band in FEQ history, Metallica, in a heavy metal night to remember on July 14!

Long awaited by Festival fans, UK band Muse wraps up the 11 intensive days of music with the rock band from Los Angeles, Mondo Cozmo (Joshua Ostrander) in a fitting climax to this anniversary edition.
