The Puerto Rican-born star was briefly joined by DJ Alex Sensation on stage, which was scheduled for the night as part of the FEQ extras, much to the delight of the 800 lucky people who managed to sneak inside.
“Technically, it is not possible to do a concert. He will do what he can under the circumstances,” Summer Festival programming director Louis Bellavance had previously warned.
Luis Fonsi appeared around 11:30 p.m., about forty minutes after Alex Sensation’s performance began.
“Bonsoir Québec,” he exclaimed, a Joe Sakic Nordiques T-shirt on his back. “I wanted to see you anyway, I wanted to be close to you,” she added before creating a singing frenzy. blame me Y Slowly.
“I love you Quebec,” Fonsi then launched, before leaving, promising to return soon.
This hastily improvised performance partially saved the first Latin evening in the history of the FEQ, which had just failed due to a deluge that the weather forecast had not foreseen.
Luis Fonsi eagerly awaited this first concert of his career. He had even prepared a specially designed song lineup for the Plains.
The rain began to fall at the end of singer Becky G’s concert as the opening act.
The rains quickly intensified and after some lightning and thunder, the organization of the Summer Festival ordered the evacuation of the place, around 9:20 p.m.
The FEQ’s other outdoor stages, where Lil Tecca and Gros Mené performed, were also evacuated.
Luis Fonsi, therefore, suffered the same fate as Foo Fighters in 2015 and Imagine Dragons in 2019, except that he didn’t even have time to sing a single song in the Llanos.
Will he be back for an upcoming FEQ? Louis Bellavance did not rule out this possibility.
Becky G: Extravagant
It’s a shame because the night had gotten off to a good start. The young Californian Becky G, pop star and reggaeton in Spanish with songs that have hundreds of millions of reproductions, offered an extravagant first part.

Then the party resumed and Becky G was able to play her hits Shower Y mamiiii just before the flood.
Alex Sensation: Party Hell
Was it the first part of Luis Fonsi or an extension of the electro evening of the previous day? One thing is certain, Colombian DJ Alex Sensation, who does not yet have a Wikipedia page, led one hell of a party at the beginning of the evening.
Alternating classic house, Latin and rock hits, ranging from LMFAO to Queen to Bad Bunny, he kept his world on its toes from start to finish of his set creating an all-in atmosphere on the Plains. Festival goers near the stage danced and sang their hearts out.
As a warm-up session, you can hardly ask for more.
