La Route du Rock

Every year since 1991, the pirate radios that came up with the Route du Rock have been inviting music fans to rock out to new music. Since 1993 and the concert by a group of illustrious unknowns from Oxford, known as Radiohead, the Route du Rock has continued to reassert its status as a stand-out event for Anglo-Saxon rock. Now, the key to its success is in doubt: a musical siesta on the beach at the foot of the ramparts in the afternoon.
