Festival Story:

The Vieilles Charrues Festival started in the middle of Brittany, as a small volunteer-led community project. It has now become one of the largest music events in Europe attracting 180,000 spectators over three days. Every summer, an increasingly enthusiastic crowd comes to enjoy the musical performances of today’s and tomorrow’s stars in the natural amphitheatre of Kerampuilh. The festival has three of the biggest stages in Europe and welcomes over 80 bands. The choice of performers is amazingly diverse and it is that diversity which is at the very heart of the festival’s success. In addition, the success of the festival, a great source of pride for the region, relies on the contribution of more than 5,000 volunteers.
