This is a major French song and music event.

Since 1985, the Francofolies music festival has united the leading French-speaking artists with an ever-faithful audience.

Created by Jean-Louis Foulquier, the festival sets up its premises every year in the centre of La Rochelle along the city ramparts and by the Port.

The programme showcases French or French-speaking artists from the world of song and modern music.

The ‘Francos’, as they are affectionately known, also develop musical events involving schoolchildren and the ‘Chantier des Francos’.

For 15 years now, the ‘Chantier des Francos’, has assisted up and coming young talent in the French-speaking music scene. The aim is simple: to give them the advice they need to perform well on stage and to give them the tools required to enhance their visibility and make their work known. This is how every season, the Salle du Chantier, a former naval dockyard refitted out as a concert hall, hosts about 15 budding young artists. On stage or in the wings, the Francofolies support the talent of tomorrow.

From soul to folk music, by way of hip-hop, electro, blues or rock, all possible styles of music converge in La Rochelle. An extraordinary array of acts occupies the 7 different festival stages !!
A festive spirit and a truly convivial atmosphere take over the city of La Rochelle during these 4 days.
