See you at the Lorient Festival Interceltique !

The Festival interceltique de Lorient is the largest festival in Brittany and France. It attracts an average of 750,000 visitors and spectators each year! While the town of Lorient is the base for the Festival Interceltique, festival-goers can take advantage of all the activities available in Lorient Bretagne Sud: beaches, visits, walks only add to the cultural discovery you will experience at the Festival! Are you coming?

Every year, for 10 days at the beginning of August, the event brings together 11 Celtic nations in Lorient at several sites in the city (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Galicia, Asturias, Brittany, United States, Acadia in Canada, Australia). Every year, the public comes to applaud more than 4500 artists (musicians, dancers, visual artists, film-makers…). And it has been going on for 50 years!

The 2022 festival puts Asturias in the spotlight from 05 to 14 August, discover the programme here on the Festival Interceltique de Lorient website!
