As is the tradition, several music stars in quebec will take part in this national festival virtual, which would value of important places from different regions of the province, has reported to us a well-informed source in the culture medium.
It is Jean-François Blais, who has made his mark on the live of the universe, The Voice and driver of the grand spectacle of the plains of Abraham for the past four years, which will ensure the staging and implementation of the program. It will be, in large part, presented live by respecting the measures of social distancing.
The aim is to bring together Quebecers in front of the small screen. It would be already clear, that the long time partner of the national Holiday, Télé-Québec, télédiffusera the show, but we wish, we are told, convince the other major networks of the present time.
The animators and the artists who will participate in the event will be announced later in the spring.

This project is born from the observation that the chances of presenting the usual show on the plains of Abraham have become almost null, especially since the declaration of François Legault, yesterday.
