Le Festival

A unique Festival that brings together the greatest artists

In just 10 years, the Carcassonne Festival has become one of the 10 biggest French festivals* and has become the cultural event of reference for the whole of the great south. A Festival that is constantly evolving, growing year after year both in terms of its ambitious programming, its stages, and its notoriety which now goes beyond the borders of France.

Every summer, the Carcassonne Festival welcomes more than 200,000 spectators from France and abroad. A Festival that offers an exceptional place and setting, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site: The medieval city and its ancient theater where every evening, some 3,000 privileged people experience real moments of emotion and sharing.

A unique festival without equivalent in France, which offers throughout the month of July, 120 shows, 80 of which are completely free (the OFF), on 11 stages and in themes ranging from OPERA to THEATRE, from DANCE to MUSIC CLASSIC through a multitude of CONCERTS BY NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS.
An example of cultural diversity that has made the very identity of this festival where emerging artists, local artists and planetary stars rub shoulders in each discipline.
