“We didn’t expect it. To say otherwise would be a big lie. It gives us energy. It wasn’t easy to restart the machine after two years of the pandemic,” Managing Director Ann Huddon rejoiced.

In 2017, all passes were sold out three days before the launch. In 2012, the FEQ was sold out during the event. The 2022 quick sale is a record.

The organization got the first indication of the success of its next edition during the pre-show of Desjardins. Available passes went in 1 hour 9 minutes.

“Two years after the epidemic, we had certain doubts. The response was very good. We had a second signal of strong sales on the first day of the official sale,” Ms. Hudon said.

People ran out of live shows and art. This explains this enthusiasm. We feel it through our shows at the Imperial Bell, which are going very well. We feel back to normal. The Director General noted that this was a positive thing.

Ms Hudon confirms that for convenience reasons, there will be no additional passes for sale.

Festival-goers who weren’t fast enough to catch up will be able, on April 25, to sell out limited quantities of Gold and Silver Avant-stage Zone and Bell Signature Zone cards.

Anne Hudon specifies that the new Le Jardin area, set up in the plains, will allow 300 people to purchase a single, electronic ticket for each evening which will allow access to other stages by general admission.

These tickets will go on sale April 25 at noon.
