The Basics

6-8 July 2018
Arras, France

Main Square Festival is an annual three day music festival held in the Vauban Citadel in the southwest of Arras, France.

Across a weekend in early summer, the picturesque northern city is transformed into a hotbed of music, with international superstars coming together on a lineup that spans multiple styles and genres.

The festival's headliners regularly draw from rock, metal, indie, pop, rap and dance music, from Placebo at the very first edition in 2004 to Radiohead last year, via David Guetta, Iron Maiden, Coldplay and many more in the interim.
