This out-of-town event is packaged to entertain and champion the protection of the environment and sustainable development. This does not mean that it’s short of great entertainment, because lovers of pop, reggae, rock and a mix of other types of music are left begging for more after enjoying over 72 hours of nothing but the best of modern music.
I don’t think there is any outdoor event that can measure up to this one. Since 1989, this festival has never disappointed. It seems like everything has fallen into place to provide the 100,000+ party animals who attend this event an experience like no other. The beautiful location, which is only a short distance from Belfort and surrounded by hills and lakes, makes it the perfect place for those who treasure good times. Usually, there are four stages with live bands performing their hits, with all different genres of music well represented.
Big names in music like Elton John, Deep Purple and Indochine are known to entertain an eager crowd of close to 260,000 here at Carcassonne City. A perfect blend of local and international artists is made up of over 100 performers, who keep the electrified crowd on their toes, chanting their hearts out, while putting their best foot forward.
Performances are held at the famous La Fajeolle Main Stage, the Jean-Deschamps Theatre or at the Count’s Castle in the city.
In Calvi, people gather for six days every year, to celebrate and appreciate culture – this year it won’t be different. Various activities including electronic music, artistic performances and Corsican traditions that are held in various places within the city, its beaches and citadel.
In the afternoons, you can experience blistering sets from the world’s top DJ’s on Calvi’s beaches, while in the evenings you could attend performances at the outdoor Theatre de Verdure or relax at the harbor.
