The Main Square Festival in Arras proudly celebrates two decades of concerts, emotions and unforgettable experiences. Since its beginnings in 2004 on the Grand’Place, the Main Square Festival has established itself as an unmissable event for music lovers, its three stages attracting festival-goers from all corners of France and beyond.
In 2004, PLACEBO was the first big name at the festival. As a nod to destiny, the English duo will once again be present at the opening to celebrate this anniversary. Among other long-awaited headliners, Main Square will host metal band BRING ME THE HORIZON. We will also celebrate the return to Arras of LENNY KRAVITZ and the artist with numerous Grammy Awards SAM SMITH, as well as the first visit of the rapper NINHO.
To celebrate this anniversary, the Citadel will be transformed into a giant dance floor with the return of electro house from the French duo JUSTICE, the arrival of the master of turntables and beat VLADIMIR CAUCHEMAR, the king of trance, the Dutch ARMIN VAN BUUREN, the phenomenon duo THE BLAZE, the contagious energy of DELUXE, DJ MOSIMANN and the colorful techno of IRÈNE DRÉSEL.
Rap is just as awaited by festival-goers with this year ZOLA, ALONZO, LUTHER, JOSMAN, BIANCA COSTA or even the regional stage BEKAR who returns after setting fire in 2022.
Rock will not be left out with one of the leading groups in the revival of English rock NOTHING BUT THIEVES, the first appearance of the artist with 40 million albums sold worldwide AVRIL LAVIGNE, that of indie rock AGAINST THE CURRENT and airy metalcore from LANDMVRKS.
As with every edition, nice surprises await festival-goers such as the presence of LOUIS TOMLINSON member of One Direction or the return to Arras of PATRICE and his sweggae.
After 20 years, it is still time for the first times with the arrival of the revelations of recent months such as ZAHO DE SAGAZAN and PIERRE DE MAERE or the prodigious young blues guitarist and singer CHRISTONE “KINGFISH” INGRAM. While waiting for more…
