The town of Bourges (18 Cher, Centre) holds an annual arts festival – the Printemps de Bourges -24 -29 April 2012.
With its magnificent gothic Cathedral (St Étienne) – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by medieval streets and houses the town is well worth a visit (just off the A71 autoroute from Paris – Clermont Ferrand).
This festival has made a name for itself over the past two decades as the event of the year when it comes to the latest bands on the music scene. This year once more, 100 000 festival-goers will be flooding the Maison de la Culture and various bars and restaurants around the town.
You will find artists and groups representing the broad spectrum of musical styles today, with performances every day from noon to dawn, with sets of electronic music, sound experiments, but also exhibitions, dance and theatere preformances.
A very multidisciplinary festival, Printemps de Bourges offers 6 days of celebration and sharing to the beat of the music, to be enjoyed without moderation!
