This annual festival of classical music takes place outdoors on the main beach at Royan each July and attracts tens of thousands of spectators over a four day period. It is undoubtedly the most popular and important 'spectacle' of the Royan tourist season and is certainly not to be missed.
You can book tickets for the formal seating (price about 30 euros per person) from the ticket kiosk on the seafront or online. Alternatively you can simply turn up and find a spot on the beach or the promenade to watch the spectacle free of charge on what will, hopefully, be balmy, starry summer evenings!
In 2017 the performances take place on 22, 25, 28 and 30 July and if you are in Royan at this time you really must see it.
