CANADA’S BEST MUSIC FESTIVAL? | Quebec Summer Festival in 4K

What’s going on Vagabuddies?
Welcome back to the channel. Right now we are in Montreal airport on our way to Quebec City, Canada. Quebec City is one of the favorite places that we’ve been. We were here a year ago during the winter, and this year Quebec City Tourism has invited us back to experience the best of the city in summer. We’re going to be shooting a four-part video series over the next week where we talk about history, culture, food, nightlife, nature, but today in this episode we will be experiencing the biggest music festival of the summer: the Festival D’Ete. We’ve got backstage passes; some of our favorite bands are playing tonight, but first things first, we’ve got a plane to catch. Allons-y. Let’s go. Ladies and gentlemen, we have arrived into Quebec City. The festival is in full swing. Super awesome. You can already kind of feel the francophone vibe. Everybody just sitting outside in terrazas eating dinner. And we’re going to grab a bite to eat because we haven’t eaten all day. The last time we were here was in the winter. Now it’s summertime, and everything is beautiful. There’s tons of people out. It’s a totally different vibe than in the winter. We’re at this place called L’ Atelier. It does tartars and then raw meat on croutons. But there’s a bunch of different food, and they also have really good cocktails. So we’re getting cocktails, some tapas, some tartars, and then we’re going to the concert. Free shot of Mescal. Thank you. Merci. Well, we just finished a lovely little dinner, and now we are heading down to the actual festival. We’re going to catch a concert. Bro, where are we headed? The cool thing about this festival is that all the venues are scattered throughout the Old Town. They’re all really historic spots. Metallica is playing in the Plains of Abraham, but we’re going to go see Amadou and Miriam They’re some of the best musicians from West Africa. It’s the home of blues, and their concerts are starting right now. Our first night here in Quebec City is completed. Amadou and Miriam, an amazing band if you have not checked them out before. We’ll put a link to their Spotify playlist in the info box. Anyways tomorrow is another day. We’re tired from the plane ride. We’re going to go home, get some rest at the hotel, and then tomorrow we come back for round two with some other awesome bands. Bonjour tout le monde. Ca va? Nous savons bien. What are we up to today, Bro? Well, it’s a beautiful day here in Quebec City. It’s our first full day. We’ve had some brunch. Now we’re going to go hit the St. Lawrence River go cruising on a sailboat. We’re currently in the old port, and the whole city really was built up around the St. Lawrence River. This was like the highway back in the 1600s, 1700s. We’re going to go see the city from the water. “Allons-y, ” which means” Let’s go” in French. It’s just so crazy how different it is coming back here in the summer. It really is two very different cities in the winter and the summer. I’m excited because last time we were here, this river was totally covered from shore to shore in ice, and these crazy, adventurous Quebecers were racing across the river in canoes. They basically have this thing called the Ice Canoe Race every winter, but now we’re out here on a sailboat. Totally, totally different. If you haven’t seen the videos from our previous winter trip to Quebec, you should totally check them out. There’s a link right here in the cards, but it’s definitely a different experience. Later tonight we’ve got more of the music festival, so I think our goal for today is quite modest. Let’s just float around, have a good little time, and then get back in the music and events later today. From the bow of the ship, we can see the whole city of Quebec. On the hill we have the Chateau Frontenac. This is said to be the most photographed building in the world, and that’s for good reason It’s beautiful. The old city is walled and fortified. It was built in 1608. That’s the same time as Spanish were building Santa Fe, New Mexico and the English were building, Jamestown, Virginia. Same age Got the Old town down below by the port and then the upper area right there. There is a funicular connecting the two. There’s my half attempt to trying to pop a bottle without polluting. I was trying to catch it, pop it, and catch it. Alright guys, well afternoon is steadily approaching the evening, and everybody’s starting to line up for the concerts. It’s a beautiful afternoon here in Quebec City. Good vibes everywhere; everybody’s super happy and just enjoying summer, but we’re pretty hungry. I’m pretty hungry. I think it’s time we head over to grab some food. Alright ladies and gents, we’ve arrived at dinner for tonight. It’s a restaurant called Battuto. What do you know about it? Well.. first neighborhood we are in Saint Roch. It’s just down from the Old Town. You walk down staircases, and it’s a beautiful residential neighborhood with a lot of great restaurants. The chef here is known because he won a cooking competition on Quebec TV. But this restaurant is not very big, so it’s super hard to get reservation. I’ve heard that it’s months, even up to a year to get a table. Don’t quote me on that, but you might want to look ahead and book ahead if you come to Quebec. Let’s go see what’s all about. The first courses have arrived. There’s some amazing Italian prosciutto. We’ve got some beautiful olives, romaine lettuce in a buttermilk sauce, risotto, tomato croquettes with aioli sauce. Oh….oh yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for the concert. I’m on my way to the Plains of Abraham, which is where the main stage for the concert is. The Gorillaz are going to be coming on in just a little bit, and It’s going to be a great night. It’s a beautiful evening. Just got an amazing sunset, had an incredible dinner, and now it’s time to let loose and party a little bit and listen some great music. Hopefully, y’all are ready. Here we go. Made it into the media pit. Gorillaz about come on stage. Everyone here is hyped. It’s a really good vibe, and we’ve got to film from back here, so we’re going to our media cage. It’s been an awesome experience here at the Festival Summer D’ Ete here in Quebec City. If you like it, make sure you stay tuned for the rest of the series. The next video is going to be about the history of Quebec City. So stay tuned for that. If you enjoyed this video as much as we enjoyed this festival remember to give it a big thumbs- up ,share with all of your friends, and subscribe and turn on notifications, if you have not already. In the meantime remember to stay curious, keep exploring, and we will see all of you Vagabuddies on the road. Paz, amore, peace.

  13. YES! I come from Montreal and I loved your Quebec series, and now you're coming back!! Keep up the good work guys your content is awesome

  14. If you like summer music festivals, come to Belgium. Rock Werchter, Tommorowland, Francopholies, Dour, Pukkelpop and so much more, it's 51 days in July & August. And, as our country is super small, you can make them all.
    Don't forget we invented waffels & french fries, that we have the best chocolate in the world and around 1150 different kind of beer 😉

  15. You guys do great work! I think if you really need to get up to Newfoundland and Labrador. St. John's, Fogo Island, Gros Morne and L'anse aux meadows to name a few places. Some great scenery and interesting food.

  24. Just started watching you brothers !! Love your videos and I am enthusiastic about traveling but still looking for ways !!

  25. Loving your videos guys, keep it up! Either Im just being an idiot or is there no music listed in the descriptions anymore as there have been a few songs I like a lot. The Deja vu song at the end of this vlog especially, so does anyone know the name because I cant find it.

  26. It's amazing how you can rediscover the city you live in just by seeing it from somebody elses eyes. Beeing used to live here can make the city look boring when it actually isin't. Come back soon, à la prochaine fois!

  27. Great job bros! We first found your vlogs re Mexico City – thrilled to see you in one of Canada's best destinations!

  28. Best music festival ✌ i missed it this year because im in australia, but you make me miss my city so much ❤❤

  29. I was in the city last summers, explored every bit of it. Seeing your video, I am reliving the adventures, lovely <3 Thanks!

  30. I'm from Vancouver but I went to Québec city for school this summer and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Festival d'été was amazing!

  31. Fun Fact about Battuto Restaurant . Is location has always been a joke for locals cause their was a Breakfast restaurant there that always looked close . And one day , their was a note in the door written (but this place was closed for so long with paper in the window) ; THANKS TO ALL OF OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL YEARS OF BUSINESS. It has always been mystifying for us kids, wondering what kind of butcher was hiding in their. It's funny to see the inside after all these years of weird legends…

  32. le festival deuêtre, seriously go one minute on google translation, they will show you how to pronounce Été. Your video quality is amazing, but texts and research are not your force, seriously

  33. Can you provide the name of the company where you booked your sailboat tour? Love this! Thanks for the informative and entertaining vids!

  34. Good job guys, you are very good. However i would have like some traditionnal songs from " Le vent du nord " a world reknowmn group. Ciao

  35. This is so cool seeing you guys discover or rediscover my city because I'm kinda doing it at the same time ahahha gotta love Quebec!!

  36. What????? you didn't go to the Montreal Jazz Festival?, Just festival just to name 2 of them.
