One of the artists the most in demand on FEQ social media will top off the awesome lineup on the Plains of Abraham! Canadian superstar deadmau5 is slated to play on July 9, in a confirmed lineup that includes big nameslike Billy Joel, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Bryan Adams, Soundgarden, Journey and many others.

“We’re especially proud to have a top talent like deadmau5. He brings an electronic spark to our already strong and diversified program. This is going to make a lot of festival fans very happy!” says Louis Bellavance, programming director of FEQ.

Joel Zimmerman, more commonly known as deadmau5 (pronounced ‘dead mouse’), is one of the world’s most respected electronic music producers of modern times. Enjoying international chart success with his singles “Professional Griefers”, “Sofi Needs A Ladder”, “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” and “I Remember”, he has also released four critically acclaimed albums: > album title goes here < (his previous release which reached #1 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart, #2 on the Billboard Independent Album Chart and #5 on the Billboard Digital Album Chart),  4×4=12, For Lack Of A Better Name and Random Album Title. His new album while(1<2) will be released on June 17.  The multiple JUNO Award-winning and Grammy®-nominated artist performed at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards as part of its first ever telecast performance highlighting electronic music. His ability to push the boundaries of his talent grows at an equal rate to his fan base, which counts almost 9 million on his Facebook page. A major touring act, he has headlined Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Budweiser Made In America, Sonar, Virgin Mobile FreeFest, Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, HARD Day of the Dead, and Creamfields, and sold out Rogers Centre in Toronto and PETCO Park in San Diego, as well as multiple consecutive nights at legendary venues like the Roseland Ballroom in NYC and the Palladium in Los Angeles. Plans for a major world tour in 2015 are in now the works. He appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone (summer double issue, 2012), marking him as the first electronic artist to do so.

The 47th edition of the Festival d’été de Québec will be held from July 4 to 14, 2014.
