The Festival is a fun, musical introduction to the Beaujolais des Pierres Dorées terroir and region.
Organised by the “Les Vendanges Musicales” (Musical Wine Harvest) association, the Festival is truly eclectic and offers a varied programme. This village fête punches above its weight too with big names on stage, but you’ll find local talent – and young acts – too!
The Festival's timing is not by chance: September is an important moment for the Beaujolais region – wine harvest time– and music events are few and far between. The Festival takes place on the main square of the charming village of Charnay, and artists perform on the forecourt of the 17th century château-town hall, transformed into a stage for the occasion. Dressing rooms, catering and backstage technology are housed inside the château.
The Festival Village includes a champagne bar and various food outlets. You’ll also have the chance to meet retailers from the village of Charnay. The special coins used at the Festival are a nod to the surrounding wine region: The Bacchus!
