Rock Route- Summer collection
A rocky road.
Dates to be confirmed.
The Route du Rock is one of Brittany’s top music festivals, featuring some of the best acts on the market (think MGMT, Cold War Kids, Midnight Juggernauts or Sigur Ros). If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it is a reference to the Route du Rhum, the famed sailing race that leaves Saint-Malo every year.
The Route du Rock came into existence in 1991, courtesy of the Rock Tympans association – and found its venue in the imposing Fort Saint-Père designed by legendary architect Vauban. At first a single day festival once a year, the festival is now a three day event in summer, and also features a winter edition hosted by three popular bars in the city.
This festival continues to grow in popularity and music-lovers flock from all over France and abroad to hear the sound of major bands alongside promising newcomers handpicked by the organisers. If you are up for some quality electro, popand rock, ready to dance your heart out in an 18th-century fortress, beside the beaches of the Emerald Coast, then get your tickets and head on to Saint-Malo for a rock festival to remember.
