Du 13 au 17 septembre 2017, la pelouse du parc Lansdowne accueillera plusieurs grands noms dans le cadre d’un festival toujours en expansion. L’une des innovations des dernières années fut le volet parallèle baptisé Marvest et qui se présente comme une grande moisson musicale ottavienne. Les 15 et 16 septembre, 52 formations locales et 19 établissements participeront à cette grande fête musicale en bordure du site principale et à travers le quartier du Glebe. Tous les concerts sous l’affiche Marvest seront gratuits. Sans plus attendre, voici quelques concerts que nous recommandons !
