The Vieilles Charrues Festival – the biggest music festival of France – is held every year in mid-July in Carhaix, Brittany. The festival was created in 1992 by a group of friends and it now attracts more than 200,000 festival-goers every year. The festival is a real melting pot of musical styles, generations and performing legends like Bruce Springsteen, Muse, Charles Aznavour, Manu Chao, etc. During these four days you can eat whatever you want at the food stands and sleep at the free campsite with your fellow festival-goers.
