France's rock, pop and electronic heavyweight
Les Vieilles Charrues is the biggest music festival in France. Huge crowds flock to Carhaix every year for the A-list, super-eclectic lineups that have earned it favourable comparison with the UK's Glastonbury.
Stellar names from every angle of popular music have graced Les Vieilles Charrues' stages since it began in 1992, with Arctic Monkeys, The Cure, Rammstein, Sting, Bob Dylan, Muse, Christine and the Queens and the Black Keys among the recent stand-out performers.
A yearly attendance of 200,000+ also plays its part in creating a unique buzz around Les Vieilles Charrues, as France's biggest festival rubs shoulders with the very best in the world.
In the shadow of Chateau and in the shape of a natural amphitheatre, Les Vieilles Charrues' site is both easily accessible and perfectly suited to hosting a festival.
The stage views are great, and the sound quality is consistently high.

Les Vieilles Charrues actively discourages flying to promote eco-friendly travel methods, and there are also very limited internationally well-connected airports nearby, with the best probably Rennes, but even that is over an hour and a half away by car.
Yes, cash machines will be located at various locations around the festival, but they will all charge for use.
