France's biggest and best
Les Vieilles Charrues is a huge multi-genre music festival in France. With a capacity of well over 200,000 and programs that boast countless global stars year on year, the festival is its country's biggest.
From humble beginnings as a party for 500 way back in 1992, the festival has since reached spectacular heights with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Muse, Arctic Monkeys and Bob Dylan among the music icons who have graced the stages in recent years.
Now 25 years on from that first festival, this summer's edition is sure to be as memorable as ever.
Taking place in a natural amphitheatre in Carhaix, Les Vieilles Charrues' site is both easily accessible and perfectly suited to hosting a festival.
Dépendances de Persivien, Carhaix, 29800, France
By train: TGV services run from Paris to Brest, stopping at Guingamp, which is a small regional train ride away. Similarly, TER services run between Nantes and Quimper, stopping at Rosporden, which is a coach ride away from Carhaix.
By coach: There are various coaches that connect the UK with Brittany.
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.
