First stop on the hunt for the next big thing
France’s premier seen-them-here-first festival, Transmusical de Rennes sweeps through the genre spectrum from rock, pop and folk to RnB, hip-hop and electronic music, picking up cartloads of gems year after year.
“Les Trans” is known and renowned for its visionary lineups that catch the waves of French and European music almost before they have even started to form. Their relentless ear-to-the-ground philosophy creates as diverse a soundscape as you could imagine, with the focus on unearthing talent regardless of the genre.
A glance through the 35 previous editions reads like a who’s who of seminal artists, from Björk (still with The Sugarcubes) in 1988, to Nirvana in 1991, and Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers a few years later.
This year’s leading light Ten Walls is beyond the fresh-faced stage of his career, but the supporting cast is bristling with promise and Les Trans never disappoints. Long live the next generation.

8 venues will host Les Trans, with the main stage at the Parc Expo. Just to the south of Rennes Airport, the Parc Expo has 11 event halls and plenty of parking available.
Rennes is situated in France’s north-west, and is the capital of the region of Brittany.
Rennes Airport is just to the south of the city, but is a small-ish airport with connections mostly from within France. From the airport, the line 57 bus leaves every 30 minutes, taking 18 minutes into the city centre and costing €1.
Alternatively, Nantes Atlantic Airport is further away but is a large, international airport. Buses from the airport leave every 10 minutes into the centre of Nantes – the journey takes 20 minutes and costs €1. From Nantes, trains to Rennes leave every 2 hours and take 1 hour 30 minutes. A one-way ticket will cost around €20.
Each individual show will have different timings, depending on venue and day. See each billing for specific details.
Tickets are available to buy as a 3-day pass, a weekend pass or 1-day tickets.
