In Saguenay, performers will once again be able to walk the stages of the main stage in the Chicoutimi District Harbor District this summer.
Already there are two shows on schedule. Singer Dominic Hudson inherited the mandate to relaunch the festivities on the site, after a 16-month long hiatus.
“It was last in February 2020 as part of the Hivernades,” said Fabian Huffington, managing director of Chicoutimi Port Zone Management Company.
The musical show “Rock Story” will be part of the festival on July 1, and other artists are also planning to perform there.
“We have a license from Public Health, so I’m getting a lot of calls from promoters who want the concept,” Huffington said Wednesday, confirming that other announcements will be made soon.
The site management planned everything to ensure compliance with sanitary measures.
“We can hold 1,000 people, so we’ll have four bubbles of 250 people,” explained Fabian Huffington. The city is moving stands that will change. It gives us more space. Each bubble will have its own entrance. It is also planned to construct 32 chemical latrines. Everything is logistical. “
A minimum of 14 security guards will be on site at each event.
Shows will be free, but only people who have booked their ticket with Diffusion Saguenay will be able to enter the site to respect the 1,000 spectator limit.
For those who won’t have the opportunity to attend, the shows will be broadcast simultaneously on the Port Zone’s Facebook page.
