Practical guide



From July 07 to August 06, the Festival de Lanaudière offers a remarkable season in an enchanting setting and warm atmosphere.


  • 14 concerts at the Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay, whose exceptional acoustics and rural setting make it one of the best outdoor concert halls in the country;
  • 8 concerts in the region’s churches
  • 7 outdoor concerts Hors les murs, in cultural and agro-tourism sites;
  • 6 free movie nights;
  • Two artists' masses


Concerts are never cancelled in the event of rain. If you hold a "lawn" ticket and it rains during the concert, it will still be possible to exchange it for another concert in the 2023 edition, subject to availability only, in the 48 hours preceding your event. To exchange your tickets, please contact the Place des Arts box office at 1 866 842-2112. In the event of a severe thunderstorm, our staff will make the necessary arrangements to ensure your safety.

As the Fernand-Lindsay Amphitheater is an open-air concert hall, plan to bring warm clothes for the evening concerts, as the air sometimes becomes chilly at dusk. Wear comfortable clothes and enjoy the enchanting setting of the Fernand-Lindsay Amphitheater, the Festival takes place in a relaxed atmosphere.


The gates of the Fernand-Lindsay Amphitheater open 2 hours before the start of the concert. If you do not have your tickets, we advise you to arrive approximately 40 minutes before the start of the concert. Traffic around the Amphitheater is sometimes denser.

If you've chosen to enjoy one of the Festival's fine dining partners, plan to arrive at the restaurant around 5 p.m. (Fridays and Saturdays) or 11 a.m. (Sundays), so you can enjoy the pleasures of the table at your leisure. 

Latecomers to the "Seat" section must wait for a break in the program to access their seats under the roof.

family, children & pets

Enjoy free access to lawns at all times. Children have the opportunity to stretch their legs and play safely on our vast green space which runs through the entire festival.

So as not to obstruct the view and harm the spectators, the parasols must be closed at the start of the concert. 

All animals are prohibited on the Fernand-Lindsay Amphitheater site. Please note that guide dogs are accepted.


Performers and works may change without notice; the Festival cannot be held responsible for last minute changes.

first aid

For your safety, staff trained in first aid are present at each concert to assist you in case of discomfort.

Environmental Protection

We invite all our visitors to respect the natural attractions of the site and not to travel in the wooded areas. We also ask you to use the trash cans and recycling bins. Moreover, during your visits to the region, we invite you to respect the cultural heritage of our century-old churches.
