Atlantic summer in La Rochelle

Print PDF

The Atlantique Stade Rochelais (ASR) is one of the oldest rugby clubs, an Atlantic sport par excellence: its creation dates back to 1898! On the 25th of May, the 'black and yellow' team won against Agen and assured its accession to the Top 14 next season, thus giving the Atlantic an important place in the competition.

In June and July, festivals are the evidence of the opening of La Rochelle on the world. Every year during the last week of June, Sunny Side of the Doc brings together more than 2,000 producers and investors from all over the world who came to negotiate and debate around documentary films. In 2014, the 25th edition hosted 58 countries represented by 468 exhibiting companies.

After that, in early July, the International Film Festival of La Rochelle settles in for 10 days. Founded in 1973, this film festival is characterized by the absence of competition and the screenings of major retrospectives devoted to filmmakers or actors. In 2014, the 42nd edition honoured Howard Hawks and the golden age of Soviet silent cinema. Every year, the festival attracts more than 80,000 film lovers.

The last major summer festival in La Rochelle is Francofolies which honours French speaking artists to a large audience. From the 10th to the 14th of July, more than 120,000 festival-goers were expected in La Rochelle for the 30th edition.

Gijón, Vice President of the CAAC, celebrates the third edition of the Festival Arcu Atlanticu, a festival that combines tradition and modernity, cultural heritage and creative innovation.

A vast cultural program, in which every year a region or a country of Atlantic Europe is the centre of a particular attention, is expected. 2014 is placed under the sign of Irish culture with Cork, thus honouring two founding members of the Conference of Atlantic Arc Cities. The Festival Arcu Atlanticu also counts on involvement and active participation of other municipalities of Asturias. Cabrales, Cangas de Onís, Nava, Ribadesella, Siero and Villaviciosa will present the key initiatives of their municipalities in terms of culture, economic development and tourism.

It is a festival for all ages, with a program dedicated to youngsters in the Arc Space for Children. The stages and the tents of the Festival will be installed around the Puerto Deportivo. Other cultural facilities of the city will be added.

Brest Arena: Let's the show begin!

Print PDF

The opening of the Brest Arena is announced for the 13th and 14th of September, and the first show is planned the 11th of October. Brest Métropole Océane has been elected “Atlantic City of the Year 2014” and the city lives up to its reputation.

Why has Brest Metropole built up an arena? Instead of splitting between a sport stadium and a show auditorium, the city has chosen to create one adaptable facility that could host several types of events.

The infrastructure, with a regional orientation, will create synergies in terms of hosting capacity as well as technical offers. The future Arena could welcome between 600 and 5500 spectators depending of the possible 30 setups.

During the two open days in September, the visitors will discover the different rooms as well as the backstage areas while music and sport shows will animate the visits.

If you want to know more before the opening, you can discover the Arena through the virtual visit.
