A festival that is unlike any other
Following on from the success of the first few years, the Lives au Pont du Gard Festival continues with its work, promoting respect for the artistic vision chosen and spirit of the place.
This elegant festival, with its popular, packed programme, enjoys a particular advantage: namely, its undeniably magical setting. Every year, the stage and the numerous artists who preside over the event, stand facing this mythical setting, which towers 50m above the winding river.
More than ten contemporary artists from France and abroad, up-and-coming artists, experienced groups and local talents from the world of pop, hip-hop and electro music are invited to take part in a coherent and original programme of musical events.
Hip hop, trip hop and dubstep will be on the agenda for Thursday 9th July. Soul, folk, rock, pop and electro are the main music trends for Friday 10th July.
"Lives au Pont" is a festival like no other. Six artists, including solo performers, groups and DJs will perform live each evening from 7pm to 2am. This lengthy programme means that spectators can fully enjoy the site. They can listen to the concerts as the sun sets, enjoy the beach along the banks of the Gardon, stroll around the bridge, have a drink on the restaurant terrace or simply stretch out on the grass, under the trees etc.
