Olivier Ménard, owner of Cohen, a bar which he describes as clandestine Jeans.
Olivier Ménard, partner at the Shaker restaurant and owner of the speakeasy-style Le Cohen bar admits that this year merchants were wondering whether the already very high traffic of the famous rue Saint-Jean was going to be there during the festival.
“We didn't know if it was going to go downstairs, but there are a lot of people. Saturday, after the show, it was full. We have a private bar upstairs [Le Cohen] and the Shaker downstairs. We couldn't bring anyone in anymore. »
Despite a great start, some negative points emerged. Several readers have told us that the sound quality left something to be desired since the beginning of the Festival, on the side of the stands.
The problem would have been especially noticed during the concert of Luke Combs, Friday evening. < /p>
When asked about this on Saturday, the FEQ's chief programmer, Louis Bellavance, said he had not heard of it, but suggested that with the changes made to the Plains site, in particular the new stage, adjustments might be needed.
“There might be a sound hole in that corner. I'm going to investigate.
Another downside, artists who perform on the Plains of Abraham have criticized the lack of participation and the late arrival of festival-goers from the pre- Gold stage.
A situation that has irritated many for many years.
