Festivals
One of France's top music festivals.

The Vieilles Charrues ("Old Ploughs") festival has continued to grow each year, retaining the enthusiasm and the sense of fun that has always characterised this music festival. What was a party among friends quickly became one of the biggest music festivals in France. With an aim of boosting the region's cultural life, the festival grew into an event on an international scale.

In previous years the Vieilles Charrues has welcomed many major stars from the international music scene onto its stages, such as Cesaria Evora, Joe Cocker, the Scorpions, Youssou N'Dour, Texas and Deep Purple, as well as the best of the French scene. The festival offers an eclectic programme of rock, pop, jazz and unusual music, all in an electric atmosphere!

Outdoor concerts will take place on five different stages: this is a unique chance to enjoy four days of music in the summer sunshine in July! Bring your tent, choose a spot at the campsite, perhaps combine it with a tour of the region... and then get ready to experience some mind-blowing music!
