a music festival saved from the waters

Seeing the smiling and relaxed faces of people on Friday June 21, 2024 in the streets, everyone took advantage of the present moment. Like a moment of harmony, far from the political tumult. Without false notes. The sun and the sweetness in addition.

In Tours around sixty groups took over public space, indoors and outdoors, sometimes in original emblematic places.

The Tours court has once again opened its doors to the public and musicians for the Music Festival. This time, it was the Lume choir, with its traditional songs and vocal polyphonies, which took advantage of the acoustics of the place.

The patio garden of the courthouse welcomed a capacity of 300 people for the Ensemble Lume, an associative choir of traditional and polyphonic songs.

The Popular Orchestra of the Tours Opera performed for the first time, on the evening of the Music Festival, on the stage of the Grand Théâtre de Tours. A concert which took place after that of the Popular Choir.

The Grand Théâtre offered its stage for the very first time to its Popular Orchestra of 70 musicians.

Initially planned in the courtyard of the Ockeghem hall, the concerts finally took place indoors due to the vagaries of the weather. This is First draft, post-rock/shoegaze band.

The vaults of Ockeghem converted the post-rock interpretations of the Touraine duo First Draft into raw energy. Three rooms, three atmospheres and many other reasons to take to the street for a drink, dance or watch the France – Netherlands football match from a terrace.

In Loches, a sheltered music festival

We had taken out the raincoats and raincoats in Loches, but the song of the Lillith’s (Béatrice, Christelle and Marie) made the rain stop, for the duration of a song by James Blunt.
