Festival Description

Trans Musicales is one of France’s oldest and most famous music festivals, noted for giving up-and-coming bands a platform alongside dance music heavyweights such as The Prodigy and Laurent Garnier. Notable performers at past Trans Musicales Festivals include Ben Harper, Sonic Youth, Portishead, Bjork, and The Fugees.

This genre-spanning music festival attracts performers from as far away as Nigeria and as close by as France itself; its varied roster features techno, jazz, psychedelic rock, pop, dance, and hip-hop, as well as traditional music.
