WHERE: Marmande, France
WHEN: 27 - 30 June 2019
In the panorama of summer music festivals, Garorock has become a point of reference for enthusiasts. It will not be the most important festival of the summer, as it would seem to indicate the French, convinced nationalists. It is, in any case, a review to be held in high esteem.
Garorock 2019 takes place in Marmande, France, for the second time in four days, rather than three. At most, the town of Aquitaine, on the Garonne, is known for its vineyards and, above all, the excellent variety of tomato, famous throughout France!
It is certainly not linked to the Marmande tomato, the success of Garorock! At the base there is the excellent music that is proposed, a perfect combination of rock, electronics and Urban music. Big international names have performed during previous editions of the festival. Public Enemy, Iggy Pop, The Bloody Beetroots, Shaka Ponk, Bloc Party, Method Man and Redman, The Offspring, Cypress Hill are just some of the stars of past editions.
Born in the 1996, Garorock is a festival aimed at young and very young people. There is no lack of initiatives and activities also aimed at children, such as Garokids. It is a sort of event in the event, dedicated to children from 6 to 12 years.
