Gatineau's summer festival getaway is back for two weekends next month with live music, a swim-up bar, food trucks, and even a ferris wheel. Just two hours drive from Montreal, you can dip your toes in the sand and sip your drink from the pool at Festibière de Gatineau from July 20 - 23 and again from July 27 - 30.

This summer's festivities will feature performances by Montreal hip-hop collective Bran Van 3000, Sherbrooke-based electropop group Valaire, and Nova Scotian electro hip-hop duo Radio Radio. Also on the line-up are Alaclair Ensemble, Caracol, Laraw, Dude le Chansonnier, and Fred Gagnon.
