Prevention and Health

Weather Conditions

The shows take place rain or shine, except in the case of an electrical storm or strong winds that could endanger the safety of festival-goers and artists. Being in Rimouski, on the shore of the Saint Lawrence River, summer evenings can be cool. We advise you to take the necessary precautions to adapt well to temperature changes.

In case of high temperatures, do not forget to hydrate adequately and apply sunscreen.

Please note that umbrellas are prohibited on the festival site. Plan to bring a poncho in case of rain!

Hearing Protection

Plan to bring sound protection equipment for young children. The sound level at some shows could be harmful to their ears.
