Festival de Carcassonne 2020

Carcassonne International Festival 2020

  1 Jul 2020    31 Jul 2020

Enjoy music, theatre and dance in the South of France at the 2020 Carcassonne International Festival.

A festival of performing arts with international acts performing in venues all over the city.

The people of Carcassonne love a good party and the city is host to many cultural and musical events creating a real buzz in the summer season.

The biggest is the Festival de Carcassonne, which attracts A-List acts along with smaller concerts and performances including theatre and ballet over a period of several weeks in July.

The main venue is the Théâtre Jean-Deschamps, a small amphitheatre within the walls of the citadel with a great atmosphere and a fabulous view from every seat.

They also cram in over 80 free performances during the festival, from classical and jazz to rap and rock. These take place in the main square of the new town, Place Carnot and Square André Chénier next to the canal and the Carcassonne train station.

A new venue was unveiled in 2015, with a capacity for 10,000 people which will become a regular stage at the festival, expanding it even further. Why not book your family holiday in Carcassonne to coincide with one of these fabulous events.
