Alt-rock and electro in a beautiful château setting
Chalking up creative lineups of rock, pop, indie and electronic music since 2009, Beauregard Festival is invading its namesake château again for yet another top-line weekend of unbeatable music and stunning French countryside.
Even after just 6 years of life, Beauregard has already seen a long list of greats pass through its stages. Old-school class – Mogwai, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Pixies, New Order – has matched younger talent in abundance, while the electronic wing has grown into its own great stature, with the likes of Paul Kalkbrenner, Fakear, Gesafelstein and Disclosure weaving digital tones in and amongst the rest.
Château Beauregard lays out ample space in open clearings and forested areas, along with the impressive backdrops that have come to characterise the festival. If you’re looking for something fully-fledged but slightly under the mainstream, look no further than Beauregard.
23 hectares of meadows and wooded glades, le Château de Beauregard is roughly 10km to the north-east of Caen in Normandy.
Beauregard's 2 huge stages flanked by 3 screens each make the most of the château grounds' incredible space.
