This back-to-school season festival is a major event of Dijon : during ten days, we propose more than thirty shows in various places in Dijon and the surrounding areas.
Our aim is to create a convivial event, that is why we are also proposing some free concerts, some shows for school students or for the prisonners of the House of Detention of Dijon.
During the last week-end of the event, we create a village of the festival near the Port du Canal and we turn this place into a friendly spot where the citizens can discover worldwide artists and cultures.
A festival without borders !
