The Green Escape Festival in Craponne

From 26 to 28 July 2019 Craponne

The "Green Escape Festival in Craponne" is one of the highlights of the Velay summer. For the past 30 years, Craponne-sur-Arzon has been hosting the major names in country music. In 2007, the festival was voted the "Best European Festival" by the prestigious Country Music Association in Nashville!

Rock, folk, blues and country
in Velay

Since 2018, the 15,000 festival-goers have enjoyed an even wider range of music at the concerts on 27, 28 and 29 July. Country music is still there, of course, but much else besides! Folk music, blues, rock’n’roll: all on offer for the new festival and with the headliners Status Quo!
