About this festival
The boutique Corsican festival returns to Cargese for it’s 8th edition on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of August, set across three days on the beach and three nights in a boutique festival site near the idyllic seaside town of Cargese. In 2018 Cargese Sound System joined forces with Centris Events, the group behind Brunch -In and DGTL Barcelona, drawing on their wealth of experience in order to deliver a developed concept: Cargese Sound Festival. With renewed energy the festival will focus on generating a deeper engagement with its roots in Cargese, with Vibe Architects enlisted to develop the look and feel of the festival in order to highlight the natural beauty of Corsica.
Cargese is a village in southern Corsica in the Canton of Sevi-Sorru-Cinarca. Located above Punta di Cargese, the village has several historical monuments that make it an emblematic place of the Corsican region. Two churches; one Latin and the other Orthodox, represent the history of Cargese as a meeting-point of cultures. The village is placed among headlands marked by watchtowers.
Delivering a musical program on the forward-thinking artists across the spectrum of dance music, Cargese Sound Festival invites audiences to escape to the Mediterranean for three days and nights in the scenic sea-side town of Cargese, with the day program spent taking in the sun at the beautiful beach stage and nights dancing under the stars in a nearby boutique festival site. The lineup for 2018 includes a mix of international stars, newcomers to the French dance music scene, and shows a continued commitment to supporting and developing local DJs. Leading the way is convention defying South-African breakthrough star Black Coffee, head-honcho of Crosstown Rebels Damian Lazarus, Detroit originator Derrick May, creator of the integral Life and Death label DJ Tennis, Rome-born and Paris-based rising star Lowris, Panorama Bar resident Margaret Dygas, Italian cowboys Marvin & Guy, German gang-leader tINI playing b2b with Rex Club's Molly, and Parisian star Traumer.
