Manot Musique

20 June 2015 – Music & Arts Festival – 12 hours of live music


June 2015 sees the first ever Music and Arts Festival in Manot, (16500). The event takes place at the Village de Vacances in Manot on 20th June, as part of the Fete de Musique. There is no entry fee and everyone is welcome. We ask that festival goers bring their own tables and chairs.

As well as food vendors and a bar, there is live music from mid-day to midnight, arts and crafts stalls, a unique and original tea dance, as well as face painting and hair braiding for children. We request that alcohol only be purchased from the bar.

Although the entertainment starts at mid-day, the festival will be officially opened by the Maire of Manot at 2pm with a ‘wish’ balloon release.

The evening culminates with The Robbie Williams Experience – a fantastic young tribute act from the UK.

This site has been set up to tell you all about what you can expect at the festival. Over the coming weeks, as we lead up to the festival, there will be a weekly blog featuring the various acts and stalls.

We hope you will join us to make this a successful event – the first of its kind in Manot.
