Rooftop festival in Cannes
Edit: The Pantiero festival has been discontinued.
The Pantiero Festival is held every year in Cannes, offering an interesting selection of upcoming bands from across Europe. The focus is electronic, but in a wider range than most other festivals. A fun twist if that some of the concerts are held on the roof of the Palais des Festival itself.
The festival offers:
– a programme of new musical trends while respecting a strong identity: the Pantiero Festival’s international reputation is as a talent spotter. Each year, a mix of young talents and confirmed artists of the new musical trends are invited
– local DJs. Since 2006, the public has been welcomed by an emerging local DJ.
– accessible entrance fees.
– responsible behaviors with regard to Quality / Security-Health / Environment :The Pantiero Festival provides access for persons with disabilities and reduced mobility and to welcome the public and the artists in maximum safety conditions. The Pantiero Festival, located in the heart of Cannes, minimizes noise problems by using a directional sound (Line array) system.
