Catalyseur d’une envolée festive dans le centre-ville de Gatineau l’an dernier, la première édition du festival Transistor vouée à célébrer la radio numérique s’est avéré un franc succès. Les autorités de la région ont salué l’initiative et soutiennent cette année la deuxième mouture, un autre rendez-vous rassembleur qui a été annoncé en grandes pompes au Troquet. Les organisateurs Julien Morissette et Steven Boivin ont présenté la programmation qui compte près de vingt projets de baladodiffusion qui seront présentés en direct de l’événement.
