Brest hosts the Astropolis Dance Music Festival, a celebration of electronic music involving some of the biggest names in the genre in the country. Since 1995, this annual event has been held every July, over a period of three days, in various venues across Brest, including the Port du Commerce, Cabaret Vauban and Astroclub. Almost 20,000 clubbers descend on this destination to experience electro, techno, hardcore and even pop and punk during the festival, while younger fans are catered for by the Astroboum techno party. The festival’s roots are in the 1980’s rave parties and although it has evolved, it still stays true to its origins.
Les Jeudis du Port music festival is also held every July in the port of Brest. Musicians perform to the crowds on various stages and audiences can experience a vast range of music genres. Between shows, street performers showcase their skills all around the city.
