Festival de Saintes

In 2023, the Festival de Saintes will take place from 15 to 22 July.

50 years plus 1, let’s continue to write the story of this emblematic festival together.

In 2023, the town will take on a festive atmosphere with this new edition of the Festival de Saintes. The Abbey and other remarkable venues will resonate with the most beautiful music of both yesterday and today. The best European artists meet and mingle at the festival which,  in just a few years, has become the international benchmark for the revival of classical music.

And the creator of next year’s programme… the  outstanding conductor who will be with us in person, Hervé Niquet.

8 musical days to live intensely.
