Festival du Bout du Monde

Another weekend festival kicking off in France today, with the Festival du Bout du Monde getting my attention.

World music is the order of the weekend,  but in the loosest and most inclusive sense.

Over the three days, Crozon in Brittany hosts Fakear, Vaudou Game, Salkah Sue and dozens of others in a colourful and international bill.

Eric Burdon and the Animals, John Butler Trio and Lisa Simone also perform this year,
The even is held in the Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique, giving it the benefit of a stunning location.

It's been running since 2000, and previous years have seen the likes of Alan Stivell, Ibrahim Ferrer , Tinariwen and Youssou N’Dour perform.
