Beauregard Music Festival in Normandy

Set in the beautiful grounds of Beauregard Castle, this music festival bridges the gap between underground and mainstream, with a creative lineup of electro, techno, rock, pop and indie that’s been running since 2009. This year’s acts include Depeche Mode, Macklemore, Simple Minds, Jack White, The Breeders, MGMT, The Offspring and At The Drive In.

With its wide open clearings and forested areas, the chateau grounds are a great setting for this laid-back weekend – and your best bet is to camp on site, just 10 minutes’ walk from the heart of the action. Prices range from €49 (approx £43) for a one-day ticket, to €164 (approx £144) for a four-day pass.
