“It wants to position itself as the biggest music festival in Brome-Missisquoi while being accessible to a wide audience.

We wanted to offer them something that was going to join as much while being different “, has indicated the latter on the sidelines of the press briefing at The Voice of the East.
“Almost exclusively “
