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.
