One of France's finest festivals
Main Square Festival is a multi-genre music festival that takes place in Arras, France. For over a decade, the festival has welcomed diverse lineups of artists from across the globe to perform in the historic citadel in the heart of the town.
What started out as a fairly humble event back in 2004 has now developed into one of the country's biggest and most respected music festivals, with fans travelling from far and wide to see international megastars topping the bill; as well as the rising stars and exciting French talent on display across the early-summer weekend.
The incredible Citadelle d'Arras is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and provides a unique setting for the festival.
