Today, we waited with baited breath as the folks at Festival d’été de Québec announced this year’s performers. They didn’t post a photo of performer’s names like they have in the past, they made us stalk their Facebook page for 50 minutes as they released the names of each performer – one every minute.
It was click bait marketing, and we totally fell for it.
One of the biggest music festivals in North America, Festival d’été de Québec (FEQ) is celebrating their 50th anniversary – which means if you have not attended FEQ in the past, then this is the year to go!
