Meet us at the Éole Factory Festival 2023

Retrouvez-nous au Éole Factory Festival 2023
Éole Factory is the festival for musicians par excellence! Unique in its kind, open to all musical styles, its eclectic programme gives pride of place to brass and wind instruments in resonance with the great instrument manufacturers of the region.

An eclectic programme

The fifth edition of the Éole Factory Festival brings a festive wind to the area: professionals and amateurs alike gather around the omnipresent wind instruments. Éole Factory offers an eclectic programme on the Ile l'Aumône; internationally renowned artists and up-and-coming performers rub shoulders; jazz and contemporary music follow one another, and sometimes even combine.

We will hear Keziah Jones, Ben l'Oncle Soul, Danakil, Vaudou Game, mais aussi Guillaume Perret, Congé Spatial, Megaswing, Kolinga, Sax Machine...

More than 15 concerts, featuring brass and wind instruments, make music accessible to all, while artistic practices are encouraged in the instrument makers' village.

Concert with Guillaume Perret
Thursday, September 7 | Free entry

The documentary 16 levers de soleil (16 sunrises) tells the story of French astronaut Thomas Pesquet during his stay in space. A dreamlike experience with an original soundtrack by Guillaume Perret. The saxophonist will transport us into a jazz trance from elsewhere, blending the electric tones of his instrument with the sounds of the space station and the frequencies emitted by the planets...

The festival village

Éole Factory is also an OFF festival, an opportunity to highlight the extraordinary pool of professional musicians and enlightened amateurs in our region. It is a village where you can eat, share and exchange. It is an event that contributes to the development of art, the strengthening of networks and cultural diversity.
