To gather, share, celebrate and simply enjoy good times is part of the territory's DNA.

Whether you like to celebrate music, art or the sea, you will be spoiled with the abundance of festival choices that are programmed every year in the Pays de Brest:

  • The Bout du Monde Festival, a significant meeting place for world music, its name “the tip of the world” is quite representative, as it takes place on the Crozon peninsula, a unique site, to be discovered.
  • More into electronic music? You have probably heard of Astropolis ("Astro" for the connoisseurs), which has become one of the top European festivals in its category.
  • Whatever your musical tastes may be, you can’t miss the Vieilles Charrues music Festival: the commune of Carhaix, in Center-Brittany hosts the largest music festival in France and one of the largest in Europe with more than 250,000 festival-goers at each edition.
  • Here, you will experience the international maritime festival, a “must see” event that brings together 750,000 visitors, around 2,000 sail boats, 9,000 sailors and 3,000 musicians. 6 magical days that bring together Brest and visitors from around the world.

“ Fête du Bruit” music festival, short film festival, Pipebands’ Spring, Atlantic Jazz Festival, “Pluie d’images” photo festival, brass bands festival, « Jeudi du port » weekly events… parties, with friends or family, echo from the tip of Brittany.
