The most natural festival explained in 4 words…



As a travelling festival, the Escapades Musicales takes you through a unique trip around the Bassin d’Archachon and the Val de l’Eyre, between land and sea, at sunset. Each concert of this musical journey takes place in a different location chosen for its acoustics, known for its natural abundance or wonderful architecture. The festival of Bassin d’Arcachon is present in 15 places and federates and brings together audience, local associations, companies and institutional actors during 2 months of festivities. Besides public concerts, the Escapades Musicales continue their travel with school groups by offering them an educational concert.  


By encouraging concerts in the open areas, in a number of natural sites and emblematic places from the Bassin d’Arcachon, each evening is a new musical experience at the heart of a precious case. It is also an opportunity to discover some of the most beautiful sites from the Bassin and Val de l’Eyre and to enjoy, for one night, all the richness of the local architecture and heritage. « The most natural festival » fits in the heart of such a landscape with respect, and undertakes to contribute to their enhancement and their environmental protection, while strengthening the cultural influence of the Bassin d’Arcachon and Val de l’Eyre.  


Every concert is explained by musicians to share special moments of discovery and meetings in a warm atmosphere. Open seating and pricing policy (free under 18s, special prices for young people) allow us to share music with a wider audience. After-concerts gatherings are organised to promote exchanges and encourage meetings between musicians and public.  


The Program, built on the highest artistic quality, goes from classical masterpiece to lesser known work. Pejman Memarzadeh, conductor of « L’Orchestre de l’Alliance » and artistic director of the Escapades Musicales, gathers around him internationally renowned soloists come to share with the Bassin audience, unforgettable musical moments.
