World Tour  was among the most popular shows in Québec since the performance of former Beatle McCartney in 2008. One of the world’s top American hip op bands had 150,000 fans dancing with every song. Lead singer and songwriter Will.i.am gave a virtuoso DJ performance lasting 25 minutes.

Place d'Youville was jumping Sunday afternoon to a blend of blues, funk, traditional New Orleans Jazz and Motown, courtesy of Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, a unique New Orleans based outfit that a few years ago might not have been signed for the Festival d'été.
