From its beginnings as a simple summer concert to promote the heritage site, the festival has over the past 40 years become one of the region’s unmissable musical events.
The festival’s success is in large part due to its commitment to creating a space for dialogue between the sacred and secular musical cultures of the world, in a humanist spirit of sharing, exchange and understanding.
The abbey of Sylvanes, with its exceptional acoustic and now adorned with new windows, will welcome internationally renowned artists for a festival which links the great sacred repertoire of the West with sacred and secular music from around the globe. Come and join the journey and discover the songs, dances and rhythms of the world!
