Notre beau pays est un lieu aux nombreuses richesses naturelles, de se montagnes à ses plages en passant par ses campagnes verdoyantes. Il n'est guère étonnant que son calendrier soit riche en festivals aussi variés que leur décor !
Paris is the European hub for two major Chicago festivals, Pitchfork Music Festival and – along with Berlin – Lollapalooza, which shows the capital’s musical importance internationally. Both continue to bring intriguing and eclectic lineups, but the city doesn’t rely on satellite festivals to prove its musical worth. Since its birth in 2003 Rock En Seine quickly played its part to put France on the international festival map, and Main Square Festival in Arras, a few hours north of the capital, is closely following in its example. For jazz, soul, hip hop, reggae, Afrobeats and more head to AFROPUNK FEST Paris in northeastern tip of the capital. We Love Green is a multi-genre music festival, taking place in Bois de Vincennes in eastern Paris, mixing an eco-friendly ethos with artists like Tame Impala, Björk and Foals.
In 2018 Paris also celebrated 20 years of Solidays Festival, a testament to the strength its popularity and partnership with AIDS charity Solidarité Sida. Running for just as long is Garorock, which, despite its consistently ‘current’ lineups is still markedly family-friendly, and a firm French festival favourite. Les Francofolies de La Rochelle is another established festival, celebrating the finest French acts across a diverse range of styles.
Top alternative billings can be enjoyed from the luxury of the French coast too. Brittany has boasted La Route du Rock for almost three decades in the historic port of Saint-Malo. Festival Beauregard has been held inside the Château de Beauregard, in Normandy, for over a decade and has seen performances from the likes of Depeche Mode, Macklemore and Jack White.
If it's dancing you’re after look to Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival for a week of expertly curated world music in the southern town of Séte, and for straight-up EDM head an hour down the coast to Le Barcarès for Electrobeach. Or if it’s a harder techno party you’re looking for why not cross over to Corsica for the infamously stylish Calvi on the Rocks. Another option is Elements Mountain Festival, which is held in the rural mountain town of La Salvetat-sur-Agout, in the South of France, providing acid, techno and harder style underground beats.
At the other end of the spectrum, Hellfest Open Air brings hundreds of thousands of metal fans to the charming town of Clisson for what they promise to be an ‘extreme music festival’ (though that’s open to interpretation!) and as such is one of France’s most popular festivals. Another home to extreme metal acts is Motocultor Festival in Saint-Nolff, northwestern France. It has seen bands like Alestorm, Sepultura and Hatebreed play there.
Multi-genre festivals include Festival de Carcassonne in the south of France, Les Eurockéennes in the northeastern city of Belfort, and Au Fil Du Son in Civray, western France. Also, La Nuit de l'Erdre in Nort-Sur-Erdre features international headliners, acclaimed French artists and local discoveries.
De nombreux festivals français proposent à leur public de profiter des superbes montagnes du pays et de ses pistes skiables, comme Snowboxx, à la programmation mainstream ou Chamonix Unlimited qui fait appel à la crème de la techno.
