Let’s discover the most fantastic French summer festival of classical music !

Festival Berlioz - Presentation

The Festival Berlioz’ national and international reputation makes it one of the biggest classical music appointments of the season. It is also one of few symphonic music festivals in France. This yearly summer festival takes place in late August at La Côte-Saint-André, birthplace of the great Romantic genius Hector Berlioz.

The symphonic concerts are given in the court of the Château Louis XI, under a unique structure which combines both concert hall acoustics and outdoor benefits, and protects the audience from potential bad weather. Musicians always take great pleasure in performing major Romantic pieces in such an unusual venue.

Many concerts are also held in the surrounding area, mostly in churches or other smaller venues showcasing various repertoires : recitals, chamber music, contemporary creations etc. During two weeks, La Côte-Saint-André vibrates to the beat of street performances, lectures, exhibitions, workshops and other festivities.

Thanks to an affordable pricing policy, the festival welcomes each year a wide range of spectators to enjoy its outstanding scenery, friendly atmosphere and informal spirit.

The Festival is organized by the AIDA - Agence Iséroise de Diffusion Artistique (Artistic Diffusion Agency of Isère).
This organization is a public cultural cooperation establishment founded in 2004 and subsidized by the Département of Isère, the municipality of La Côte-Saint-André and the Bièvre Isère Community of Commons. The AIDA is chaired by Patrick Curtaud, Vice-President of the Conseil Géneral in charge of Culture and Heritage. Its board includes government representatives and qualified personalities who work closely with the director, Bruno Messina. In addition to the Festival Berlioz, the AIDA organizes other major cultural events of the Isère department.
