The alt-rock jewel in Brittany's crown
Winding up to mark its 25th birthday in true style, La Route du Rock continues to show why it has become a staple of the European festival calendar.
Rock, indie and soft-edged electro come together in a tribute to old-time greats and new music alike, all the while revelling in the stunning settings of Saint-Malo and Le-Fort-de-Saint-Père.
Last year saw Portishead, Caribou, Slowdive and The War on Drugs join the likes of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, The Cure and The National in gracing the iconic Fort Stage. Meanwhile, daytimes are taken care of with a slower-paced lineup at the Beach Stage on Saint-Malo's beautiful coast.
La Route du Rock is split across two locations, with three principal stages. Saint-Malo fills the daytimes with down-tempo mixes at its Beach Stage, while the Fort de Saint-Père gets going each evening. The Fort is an 18th century Vauban castle, built with stone quarried in Saint-Pierre-de-Plesguen and Chausey.

BY TRAIN: The TER Bretagne Train is €12 for a return ticket from any station in Britanny.
Unfortunately, Björk has had to pull out of her Summer and Autumn tour due to scheduling conflict, and therefore, she will not be performing at La Route du Rock. The Festival has stated they will be refunding day tickets for Saturday 15th, however, as Festicket only sells 3-day passes, our customers should be unaffected. We do apologise for any inconvenience.
