Festival de Saintes

Festival de Saintes 2019

The 2020 festival

Dear festival friends,

Despite all our efforts in the current battle against the spread of the Covid19 virus we cannot maintain the festival in July this year. So, with much regret, we have cancelled the 49th edition of the Festival de Saintes.

This very difficult decision has been taken in collaboration with all the artists who would have been taking part in this year’s festival. Many will be back next year, 2021, to celebrate the 50th edition.

As of next week, the ticket office and public relations team will be contacting you to see which option you prefer :

  • a refund
  • a credit note
  • a donation to the association, L’abbaye aux dames, la cité musicale.

More than ever, we thank you for your loyalty, your support and your good wishes.
We hope to see you all very soon.

Stay safe
