Line-up announced for France’s La Route Du Rock festival

France's premier summer music festival La Route Du Rock will take place on 13th-15th August this year, featuring acts including Massive Attack, The Flaming Lips, The National, Caribou and Liars.

Thirty bands will take to three amazing venues over the three days of the festival which is held in and around the beautiful walled seaside city of St. Malo on Brittany's Emerald Coast.

The festival has made a good name for itself amongst the plethora of European festivals which take place every summer and are becoming increasingly popular with UK festival goers.

Previous headliners such as Sonic Youth, Portishead, PJ Harvey, The Cure, Sigur Ros, My Bloody Valentine, Mogwai, TV On The Radio and Tindersticks are complemented by an International line-up of new acts; this year will be no different.

If you want to experience the imaginative, bold line-up of this festival, St. Malo is easily accessible by ferry from Poole on the south coast. Discounts are available for UK festival goers.
