Names old and new come together in lush greenland
Born in 1997, Garorock has gone onto become one of France's premier rock and electronic music festivals, famed for its daring and eclectic lineup.
Taking place by The Garrone river - hence Garorock - festival-goers can expect names they'll all be familiar with, such as this year's headliners alt-J, but also those emerging stars looking to break into our hearts, with the two combining to fulfil a billing that's as much about discovery as it is celebration.
Look around too, and you'll come across a variety of activities for those of a younger generation, with children between 6-12 even having their own festival within Garorock - Garokids, where they can muck into team games, creative workshops and other such fun.
