PHOTOS – The Rolling Saône festival is in full swing in Gray

It officially launches the festival season in the region: the Rolling Saône festival, in Gray in Haute-Saône. More than 15,000 people are expected at the Halle Sauzay over the three days of the festival, from May 9 to 11. France Bleu Besançon slipped into the crowd for the second day of the concert, Friday May 10. On the bill that evening, Olivia Ruiz and CharlÉlie Couture in particular. Festival-goers, coming mainly from Burgundy-Franche-Comté had a great time, under a beautiful sun.

“It’s a family festival, we feel good there”

Thousands of spectators wander between the scenes. The Rolling Saône festival is a tradition for Daria and her mother Nadine, who came from Dijon, in Côte-d’Or. “It’s a family festival, there’s room, we don’t feel cramped, the people are nice, in short… we feel good there!” Nicolas and his lover Marie, arrived from Besançon, appreciate the variety of musical styles offered. “Every year, they have a great program. We discover local artists, while enjoying the concerts of our favorite artists. We especially look forward to Olivia Ruiz!”

A family festival, that’s what comes out a lot from the mouths of festival-goers. Aurore also came with Timéo, her 8-year-old son and her 6-year-old daughter Clarisse. “It’s very secure for the children and there is also music for them! They are very happy to be able to accompany us to the event.” Timéo, headphones screwed on his ears to protect himself from the noise level of the concerts, nods his head. “It’s so cool! I’m having so much fun!”
