Summer Music Festivals


During July and August, islanders and tourists alike arrive en masse for two major music festivals: Patrimonio's Les Nuits de Guitare (www.festival-guitare-patrimonio.com) is held in a magical setting: a grassy moonlit seaside park near the illuminated 16th-century honey-stone church. It brings together international guitar virtuosos from the classical, pop, rock, Gypsy manouche, flamenco and jazz worlds. The Porto-Latino (www.porto-latino.com) takes place in the St.-Florent citadel and features a prestigious lineup of Latin music stars from Brazil, Cuba and the U.S.

For teenagers, there's also the Calvi On The Rocks festival, held in early July, which is a splashy electro music extravaganza held on the beach, featuring an international lineup of DJs and artists. The party rages on until the wee hours at nightspots all over town, like Chez Tao.
