The Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay (formerly the Amphithéâtre de Lanaudière) is an outdoor show venue with exceptional acoustics in a remarkable natural setting. Located in Joliette, in the Lanaudière region, it plays host to open-air classical and pop concerts. The Société de la Place des Arts has managed the Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay since 1995.
The Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay is the main concert venue for the Festival de Lanaudière, Canada’s biggest classical music festival. It also hosts other renters, such as the Sinfonia de Lanaudière, as well as outdoor film screenings.
