Strong wind, lightning, torrential rain… The weather challenges to which festivals are and will be exposed can be difficult and stressful. Will every festival need a meteorologist?
The Quebec Summer Festival and all other festivals in the province must be ready at all times to adapt their programming to the whims of Mother Nature.
First the FEQ, and then the Festif!, enlisted the services of an on-site meteorologist to facilitate and accelerate decision-making when the weather becomes dangerous. This is Jean-Charles Beaubois, president of MétéoGlobale.
