For the second consecutive year, Super Remover is an official partner of the renown Festival international de la chanson de Granby. This 48th edition, to be held from August 17 to 27, will once again highlight budding Quebec artists as they have in the past, such as Dédé Fortin, Luc de Larochelière, Alex Nevsky and 2016 spokesperson Isabelle Boulay, among others.
Why support this event?
As a Granby-based business, we can’t help but support this major competition celebrating Francophonie, side-by-side with major collaborators such as Desjardins, Hydro-Québec, the Ville de Granby and many more local and regional partners. This event is a gem in our community and we’re proud of it! We even have the chance to meet the talented artists who perform on stage.
The FICG in brief
The Festival begins long before the semi-finals held from August 17 to 20. Participants subscribe in February and their submissions are reviewed in April. Artists, groups and authors-composers-performers are called to audition from April 27 to May 8. Among them, 18 semi-finalists are chosen, including 6 French Canadian winners of various interprovincial contests.
From June 7 to 9, the artists are given customized training to perfect their work. In mid-August, comes an internship to prepare for rehearsals and the semi-finals. Super Remover will host three major shows on the Desjardins stage in Daniel-Johnson Park:
- August 25: 30 Succès – 16 Voix (Isabelle Boulay, Boom Desjardins, Michel Rivard, Wilfred LeBouthillier, Les Sœurs Boulay, etc.)
- August 26: Mordicus and Marjo
- August 27: Zébulon followed by La Messe à Dédé Fortin (Yann Perreau, Loco Locass, Koriass, Antoine Gratton, Rémi Chassé, Mara Tremblay and more!)
Enjoy the performances!
