Festival international de guitare – Montauroux

The Montauroux international guitar festival is a wonderful and free event staged over three days in early August in the beautiful perched village of Montauroux.

Since its creation in the year 2000, the Guitar Festival has enjoyed growing success, becoming an unmissable summer event in the Pays de Fayence. To meet the growing popularity of the festival with both residents and tourists alike, the programme has been gradually extended to cover a full three or four days.

The line-up celebrates guitar music in all its different forms, including classical, jazz, pop, and rock. The venues vary from the historical Chapel of St. Bartholemew to the central Place du Clos, which hosts the main stage for the evening acts and headliners.

Most notably, all venues offer free admission to all concerts. Considering the high quality and variety of the musical groups selected, it's no surprise the Guitar Festival has become on of the highlights of the Var Summer schedule.

The undoubted highlight of the 2024 Festival was The Stranglers headline set on Saturday night. Jean-Jacques Burnel (the last member of the original line-up) introduced - in fluent french - such classics as Golden Brown and Peaches, amongst more recent hits like This Song.
