The bet to give the kick-off under the sun was not a foregone conclusion. The good weather, in any case, was indeed there for this opening day of the 43e editing of the Jazz sous les pommiers festival, in Coutances (Manche).

During the morning of this Saturday May 4, 2024L’atmosphere rose crescendo in the village where they settled shops, refreshments and trucks restoration. On the bridge, the 430 volunteers were impatient to taste the vintage which promises tasty colors.

“We’ve been cycling for a while and we’re quite happy to go on an adventure after a year of work,” says Denis Le Bas, director of the festival. A start to the adventure under the best auspices with the blue color of the sky and even the heat which pushed hundreds of festival-goers, in the middle of the afternoon, to wander the streets and take over all the places of various programming, giving them a magnificent festive dimension.

91% complete!

At around 4 p.m., there were crowds near the Square de l’Évêché, the Public Garden, the cinema and under the Magic Mirrors marquee to follow the first concerts; and many children, accompanied by their families, had joined the stage of the Lebrun high school to watch and participate, laughing, in the open air show from the Spanish company Joan Català.

” THE filling rate East very satisfaying, announces Denis Le Bas, regarding paid concerts, and the public is loyal. In total, 54 paid concerts and 35 concerts are already sold out, i.e. a occupancy rate of 91%. But there remains still 3,200 tickets on sale.

Headliners but not only that, the artists sometimes came from far away to also discover “less well-known and more adventurous music”. This is above all the good note of Jazz sous les pommiers: richness, diversity, styles and cultures. Music lovers, as well as neophytes, will undoubtedly find what they are looking for here.

Always color and other flavors, those of terroir and thecraftsmanship which are highlighted with in particular cider, beer, oysters, and Camembert. Against a backdrop of exhibitions and activities.

Today, place at Sunday with Fanfares with no less than six groups in the city! And all week again, concertsof the street performances and this desire to be there and to share, in joy and complicity, with musicians, singers, artists, and people. It’s good to live together…

It’s niche music in a small town with a loyal following.
