We Found The Silver Lining at the Messy Santa Teresa Festival
This weekend marked the second-annual Santa Teresa festival. Located in the heart of the cozy downtown Sainte-Therese, the festival offered an impressive lineup of artists both homegrown and international, including the likes of Feist, July Talk, and Ghostemane.
Unfortunately, the Saturday event was rained out, forcing the bulk of acts playing outdoor to cancel their performances. To make matters worse, rappers Ski Mask the Slump God, Trippie Redd, and headliner Lil Uzi Vert did not make it over the border for their respective Sunday performances, angering fans enough to loot when the latter was announced as cancelled.
In the midst of the madness, however, came some memorable moments. Quebec acts like Loud, Dead Obies, and High Klassified held down the fort for those in dismay with the event's rap repeals. Our team hit Santa Teresa to capture some of the few shows that saw the light of day. Click on any image to get started:
