Crème Festival in Villefranche-sur-Mer

Updated: Apr 4

Celebrating “Love, music and feet in the water”, the Crème Festival is a three-day music festival that takes place in mid-June in the beautiful setting of the citadel and beach of Villefranche-sur-Mer.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a charming village, with a citadel, a labyrinth of courtyards, and an old fishermen’s village in peach, yellow and apricot tones. The port is dotted with small, colourful wooden boats, fronting sandy beaches, and a breathtakingly beautiful bay of turquoise waters.

The format is simple; three main areas centred on the Citadel, the Beach, and the Petanque area. The programme includes boat trips, yoga classes, great live music, DJ sets and local delicacies. Electronica, trance, and dance dominate and, trust me, the french are very, very good at this.

The 5th edition - 2024

The fifth edition of La Crème Festival will take place from June 14 to 16, 2024 in the harbour of Villefranche-sur-Mer.
