Sunday sees sets from Grand Parc, Grand Blanc, Jeanne Added, Jain. Lou Doillon and Louise Attaque, alongside PJ Harvey Jurassic 5 and others.

For all it has many huge international acts, there are plenty of French acts that we've covered regularly in this blog as well. A well chosen selection.

It's the eighth time the event has been held. Last year more than 80,000 people attended the event, with sets from among others Christine and the Queens, Sting, Lenny Kravitz  and Scorpions. It's some a long way from the first time the festival was held was in 2009, a two day event for 20,000 that saw the likes of Pete Doherty, Charlie Winston, Mogwai and Editors play.

It's held at the Domaine de Beauregard park in Hérouville-Saint-Clair and a variety of tickets from single day to multi-day are available.
