Once again, the rugged Atlantic coast of France welcomes dozens of musicians and thousands of festival fans
(TRAVPR.COM)UK - July 31st, 2012 - Since 2000, the second weekend of every August has seen a vast festival of world music descend upon one of Brittany’s coastal beauty spots, the Crozon peninsula.
Between August 3rd – 5th this year, 60,000 people are expected to visit the ‘Prairie Landaoudec’, now one of France’s biggest musical gatherings. Bands and performers from every continent attend, and the Festival de Bout Du Monde has grown so popular, the number of visitors is now limited to what the area can cope with.
The festival’s programme attempts to combine established artists with talented newcomers, on three separate stages, located to allow the differing styles space to express themselves fully, without disturbing each other.
The musicians could hardly be more varied; from New Zealand come The Black Seeds, from Scotland, The Waterboys; Jamaican reggae artist Jimmy Cliff, vintage balladeer Salvatore Adamo, Mali vocalist Fatoumata Diawara, US rappers Beat Assailant, Israeli folk-rocker Asaf Avidan, Korean Jazz Quartet Youn Sun Nah …something for absolutely everyone.
The location is a huge part of the appeal, offering great scenery and unspoilt beaches. There’s a warm, family atmosphere and every opportunity to try international cuisine as varied as the music.
A vast area is set aside for tenting visitors, and huge car parks are provided. Dedicated trains, buses and even boat services help to coordinate the free movement of so many visitors. For music lovers travelling light, the Edge of the World is the only place to spend early August.
