A city full of music
Stuffed full of big name stars all the way from indie, rock and metal to pop, electronic and urban, the historic citadel of Arras in northern France plays host to one of the most eclectic music events on the planet.
Main Square is among the country’s leading festivals, and its stunning location alone would be enough to bring in its yearly crowds of 100,000.
But the diverse lineup – which saw Iron Maiden play alongside Jack Johnson and David Guetta last year – adds a unique intrigue, with something there for everyone’s taste.
The impressive Citadelle d'Arras is a UNESCO World Heritage site, meaning it is internationally recognised as a place of special cultural significance.
Arras is situated in the far north-east of France, close to the Belgian border.

The closest airport to Arras is Lille.
FROM LILE AIRPORT: The navette, or shuttle service, from Lille Airport departs hourly and takes 20 minutes to reach Eurallile, in the city centre. Lille Flandres rail station is just round the corner, and trains depart from there once per hour in the direction of Arras. The journey takes just over half an hour. The whole trip should cost you around €20.
Unfortunately not. However, there are cash machines available in the city centre itself.
No, but anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Yes, you can take soft drinks and beer, but each person is restricted to 12 cans. Don't get greedy.
