Chaleur Region rock music festival slated for summer pending municipal approval

If everything goes according to plan, there will be a new event for Chaleur Region music-lovers to check out.

'Rockfest du Nord-Est' is slated to take place in Nigadoo this summer pending approval of the village's council.

Co-organizer Nick Melanson says the event will feature several rock acts from across the province and from right here in the Chaleur region.

Melanson says his group aims to attract approximately 2,000 spectators for the inaugural event.

If council gives the green light, the festival will take place at the Nigadoo Sportplex from August 2nd to 5th.
