One of the biggest open air events in Europe, it covers an area of 84 hectares, with 7 stages, more than 200 stalls and over fifty bars. Open to other forms of artistic expression, Paléo Festival also invites audiences to enjoy circus acts, comedy and numerous performances involving street theatre.

Paléo covers a pretty big festival grounds, with the acts divided into six different stages; Le Grande Stage is where you’ll see most of the big headliners. Because the festival practically covers a whole week, you’ll want to prepare a fair bit beforehand when it comes to selecting the days and acts you want to attend.

Besides a good glut of public art and the obvious musical element, one important element of Paléo is Le Village du Monde (The World Village) section, an area that is transformed into an invited region, city or country from around the world. Within the village is Le Dôme, which serves both as of Paléo’s six stages and a gallery for artists from the region in question.
