Main Square Festival France 2024 news

After the announcement of the first 27 groups and artists last December, the Main Square Festival 2024 program has been expanded with 14 new names.

Like what was outlined during the launch of this 18th edition of the Arrageois festival, this second round confirms the eclecticism of the Main Square version 2024 with the presence of SEAN PAUL, one of the spearheads of the dance hall with multiple worldwide successes, or that of TOM ODELL British singer and composer who has established himself as one of the most promising pop references of his generation. We will also find the French EDDY DE PRETTO, who we no longer present, with his varied and impactful musical influences but also the Swedish pop and dance music singer: ZARA LARSSON known for her hits such as “Lush Life” and “Never Forget You.

Guitar and rock fans will not be left out with the addition of the English from BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB whose live performances have made them famous, the Scottish from THE SNUTS, a new sensation on the rock music scene as well as the group YONAKA in explosive energy with its charismatic singer Theresa Jarvis. Another sensation, THE WARNING, a Mexican rock group formed by three talented sisters who combine hard rock and female metal like no other. In another register, NATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE NIGHT SWEATS will bring its sense of fusion between soul, rock and rhythm and blues. We will also be able to discover the psychedelic rock of Australian PSYCHEDELIC PORN CRUMPETS for the last day of the festival.
