South of France music festival in a beautiful setting

Every July the Château de Valmy hosts a fabulous music festival, Les Déferlantes, in the seaside town of Argelès-sur-Mer.

There is a mix of French bands and international acts, which in the last few years have included such acts as Sting, The Chemical Brothers, Arcade Fire and Lenny Kravitz.

A relatively small festival, with a capacity of around 12,000, there is a relaxed atmosphere
and two large stages which means no waiting between bands!

There is a token system for drinks and you can buy snacks and also visit the wine bar up on a hill overlooking the site.

Les Déferlantes festival operates a park n' ride system, ferrying festival goers from car parks on the outskirts of Argelès-sur-Mer on free 'tourist trains' (note: there is a 10 minute walk up a gentle hill to the festival site).
