Les Francofolies de La Rochelle is a five-day music festival in the beautiful city of La Rochelle on the west coast of France.

Since its birth in 1985, the festival has played a key part in championing the music of France and French-speaking artists, irrespective of genre, and has long established itself a cultural site for all ages. Twinned with its location in the historic, limestone-adorned seaport, there’s no better to way to experience the music of the country’s rich past and future.

The festival’s main outdoor stage is situated on the port of Esplanade Saint-Jean d’Acre, however there will also be shows in venues nearby, including a theatre, club and the old harbour.
