Huge names in rock, pop and electronic touchdown in this quiet corner of France
Held at the beautiful Citadelle d'Arras, Main Square Festival brings a superstar-bloated lineup to the historical setting.
More than 120,000 descend on the town every year, drawn by the festival's diverse lineup, that in 2015 put Pharrell Williams alongside Muse, and the idyllic, quiet corner of France it resides in.
With a population of just 45,000, charming streets and town squares, Main Square's Arras takeover is totally unique in that it brings such big names to the most inconspicuous of locations, and there's no mud in site.

Arras is in the North East of France, not far from the Belgium border, and was established during the Iron Age by the Gauls.
Main Square Festival takes place at the spectacular Citadelle d'Arras, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is therefore internationally recognised as a place of special cultural significance.
