After a great edition in 2022, the Main Square festival announces its return to Arras on Thursday June 29 and Friday June 30, then Saturday July 1 and Sunday July 2, 2023. What about the program? Maroon 5 is the first group to confirm its visit to the Citadel of Arras for an exclusive festival date in France.
Considered one of the biggest music festivals in France, the Main Square Festival, created in 2004, owes part of its success to the site of the Grand’Place in Arras, where the festival took place for seven years. Seven years during which festival-goers were able to admire this Grand’Place, considered to be an architectural ensemble unique in Europe. At the time, this historic site could accommodate around 30,000 festival-goers per day. the Main Square Festival has already been able to welcome bands such as Muse, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Radiohead and Placebo to this venue.
Since 2010, the Main Square Festival therefore takes place on the Vauban Citadel of Arras, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This new place has thus helped the festival to increase its reception capacity with approximately 40,000 festival-goers.
After DJ Snake, Macklemore, Ben Harper or even Christine and The Queens and Bigflo & Oli in 2019, the festival was forced to postpone its 2020 and 2021 editions due to the health crisis. But the festival made a comeback in 2022 by inviting Sting, Twenty Øne Piløts, Black Eyed Peas, DJ Snake, Angèle, SCH, La Femme, -M-, Vald, Pixies, and Sum 41 for the occasion.
In 2023, the Main SquareFestival intends to do as well, if not better. So see you at Arras them Thursday 29 and Friday 30 June then Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 July 2023 on the occasion of his news and 17th edition.
