Veterans like Patrice Michaud and Michel Pagliaro, along with younger artists like Alicia Moffet, Jay Scott, Sarahmée, Les Louanges and Fouki are scheduled to perform in the concert, which will be broadcast on ICI Radio-Canada Télé, TVA and Cogeco Media’s music radio stations on June 24 at 8 pm

Pierre-Yves Lord will host the concert, which also includes performances by Kathia Rock, Ariane Roy and Roxane Bruneau.

The concert is titled “J’aime ma langue” (I love my language), and organizers say artists “will use the French language to unite, move and make all of Quebec vibrate.”

The last two versions of the concert were done without an audience in other cities to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Festivities are planned in Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles from June 23 to 25, including the annual parade, which is also using the French language as a theme.
