The Festival of Carcassonne, throughout July annually

In just 10 years, the Festival of Carcassonne has become a landmark cultural event in the South of France attracting big names such as Arctic Monkeys, Diana Ross, Bob Dylan,  Jose Carreras and Elton John to name a few.   This year’s line-up includes Joan Baez, Sting and the Black Eyed Peas. The venue for a lot of the acts is the small amphitheatre within the medieval city itself affording the audience a uniquely romantic and intimate setting.

The event is attended by over 200,000 and culminates in a spectacular fireworks display over the medieval city of Carcassonne.
