Festival Blues in Loire à La-Charité-sur-Loire

The Burgundy summer with a hint of the blues

17/08/2019 - 24/08/2019

Every year at the end of August, the Blues en Loire Festival of La Charité-sur-Loire celebrates music. Concerts given by artists from all backgrounds pulsate at the heart of the town for two amazing days. A musical event where the whole family can explore the magic of the blues!

A tribute to music

At the end of summer, La Charité-sur-Loire welcomes musicians of international repute to the Blues in Loire festival.

Two days during which all the magic of a musical tradition tinged with history will thrill you! In 2011 La Charité-sur-Loire welcomed blues legends such as Eddie C. Campbell, Tre’s & The Blues Knights and even Bill Sims.

Tradition…in song !

Blues en Loire is a great opportunity to enjoy a meander through the streets of La-Charité-sur-Loire. The town’s amazing sites are truly enveloped in music.

Groups of musicians set up and play open-air concerts:

  • In the Jardin des Bénédictins, a magnificent green space at the foot of Saint-Laurent church ;

  • at the Place des Pêcheurs, at the foot of the Sainte-Croix church tower.

See them also in places that have a historical significance:

  • the Cellier des Moines, a former 13th Century priory converted into a theatre space ;

  • the Halle aux Grains.

Literary Interlude in the « Ville du Livre » [« Town of Books »]

A vintage book and printed materials fair takes place on the third Sunday in July and the Sunday that follows the Blues en Loire. The town also pays tribute to the book craftsmen who practise their trade at the foot of the Sainte-Croix church tower. Bibliophiles, calligraphers and bookbinders are there to help you explore the wealth of their ancient craft.
