Vieilles Charrues

Carhaix: 18-21 July 2019

Whilst the line-up at the Vieilles Charrues changes every year, for over 20 years its recipe for success has remained the same with a mix of eclecticism and conviviality, legends, and legends in the making. Five stages, 80 artists and 230,000 spectators…This festival really is a must!

France’s biggest music festival

Situated in the heart of the Finistère countryside, the festival comes back each year with a line-up that’s music to your ears. The playlist will appeal just as much to electro mad teenagers as pop fans and rocking granddads. The festival has the knack of creating a melting pot of musical styles and generations to suit all styles and generations. Some of the big names that have already performed here include Iggy Pop and the Stooges, 2 Many DJ’s, Amon Tobin, Ben Harper, Bruce Springsteen, LCD Soundsystem, Pixies and Muse.

Created in 1992 by a group of friends, which included Michel Troadec, the current mayor of Carhaix, the idea back then was to “enjoy a good meal, have a sing-a-long and a couple of drinks”, and 20 years later, the Vieilles Charrues hasn’t lost sight of its convivial origins. More than 230,000 visitors visited in 2010!
