An inclusive festival, family and accessible to all. This is what Au Foin de la Rue has been committed to for 20 years. This year, no exception. The festival returns from July 1 to 2 with an eclectic program and devices dedicated to the well-being of people with disabilities.
Since the year 2000, the Au Foin de la Rue festival has shaken up northern Mayenne every summer. Because yes, the Mayenne is not only a lot of countryside — as the organizers have fun — it’s also good music. And this, thanks to a few intrepid enthusiasts who wanted to bring culture to rural areas twenty years ago. Culture for all is the credo of Au Foin de la Rue. This is why the organizers work hand in hand with the volunteers of Accès Pour Tous, to put in place measures making the festival accessible to people with disabilities. And yes, we must not forget that our cities, our leisure activities exclude a large part of the population on a daily basis. How to get to a festival in a wheelchair when the road is muddy? In case of need or questions, Accès Pour Tous volunteers will be available throughout the festival. The concerts will be in song-signature, vibrating vests to feel the music will be available as well as terminals to recharge the seats and of course raised platforms will be set up in front of the stages.

In terms of programming, the festival has nothing to envy to its competitors in the North-West of France. Still true to form, the festival once again features a family-friendly and eclectic line-up, from the guitars of Rodrigo y Gabriela to the edgy electro indie of Bagarre. And these are not the only groups to be in the game: the festival has invited, from July 1 to 2 in Saint-Denis-de-Gastines, headliners and discovery artists who are just waiting to be known. es. We thus find half of Colombine, Lujipeka, the writer-rapper Gaël Faye, the DJ traveler Thylacine, the fifous of La Femme, the Franco-Armenian duo Ladaniva or the techno producer Irène Drésel. Alongside them, the Rennes rock quartet Guadal Tejaz, the Auvergne psychedelic band Super Parquet and the committed electrotrash group Les Vulves assassines. A beautiful little world that we personally look forward to discovering.
