FME’s 17th Edition: Three big outdoor concerts and a brand-new Passport!

The Festival de musique émergente en Abitibi-Témiscamingue(FME) has a hard-hitting 17th edition lined up: for the second consecutive year, there are three big outdoor concerts. The full programme will be announced on July 16, but in the meantime, we have the pleasure of announcing the artists who will appear at the celebrated Desjardins outdoor stage on 7th Street. Also, the FME is proud to announce an all-new ticket option this year: The Total Passport.

Musical Programming

Once again this year, the FME will present top-notch talent at the Desjardins outdoor stage.

On Thursday, August 29, French electro-pop composer and performer Jeanne Added kicks off the outdoor schedule. In 2019, she won two Victoire prizes, and festivalgoers may remember that she appeared at the FME at the very beginning of her now-illustrious career. Next up that night is world-renowned Montreal DJ Kid Koala, whose shows are always unforgettable. On Friday, August 30, the Desjardins stage will have the honour to welcome Sarahmée, a rising Quebec star with a sweet mix of rap and pop; KT Gorique, a Swiss rapper with strong beats and a deft pen; and Loud, with their second appearance at the FME in as many years, this time armed with their new album Tout ça pour ça, along with an all-new stage show. On Saturday, August 31, it’s time for the second Hip-Hop Night with FouKi, who darts among trap, reggae, and folk with a rich mix of humour and introspection; Alaclair Ensemble, with their playful vision of Quebec hip-hop; and Koriass, who came back strong in 2018 with their new album La Nuit des Longs Couteaux.

Outdoor Passports, which confer admission to all three of these shows, are on sale now for $50 at on the “Tickets” page.
