La Route Du Rock Collection Hiver is an alternative music festival that takes place in cities of St Malo and Rennes, in the north of France.
Now more than a decade on from the introduction of a winter edition of the iconic French festival brand, the February festival sees rising stars and established acts combine for a series of concerts in venues across the host cities.
Although the summer festival generally boasts bigger lineups, the likes of MGMT, Beach House, James Blake, Teenage Fanclub, Caribou and Car Seat Headrest have made appearances at the winter festival across the years.

The festival takes place in a number of venues in the French city of Rennes, and approximately 70km north in the city of St. Malo.
GETTING TO RENNES
Rennes is connected directly to Paris by rail, and is therefore easily accessible from much of France and further abroad. Rennes also has its own airport (around 6km south-west of the city), with flights to and from a number of European destinations.
GETTING TO ST MALO
If you are travelling from the UK, you can reach St Malo directly by ferry from Portsmouth, Weymouth and Poole or fly from Stansted Airport. From continental Europe, regular trains run directly from Rennes to St. Malo
