Message from the Director

Dear festival-goers,

The year 2021 was marked by the return of our activities despite a crisis still present in our minds. Despite this, we have deployed all our energy to prepare for you this 11th edition of the Cooksound Festival, which will take place from July 21 to 23 in this magnificent setting that is the garden and cloister of the Cordeliers in Forcalquier. 

It has been 11 years since we succeeded in ensuring that this multidisciplinary event can be accessible to all audiences. This festival aims to convey values of solidarity and sharing where the environment and sustainable development remain essential. 

In addition to a varied artistic and culinary program, we promote child / parent complicity through different activities offered (readings, storytelling, comic book workshops). 

As usual, the Cooksound Festival will offer you a wide line-up of artists from here and abroad, around electro, jazz, hip-hop, funk, salsa, rebetiko, Afro-Soul, blues, rock, in short, a host of talented artists bringing together many aesthetics that will satisfy the greatest number.

The culinary part will promote local producers and partners while offering quality and seasonal fast food.

We would like to especially thank our public and private partners whose loyalty and involvement have enabled us every summer for 11 years to offer a cultural, family and summer event highlighting music, culinary arts, and our environmental values.

A huge thank you to the team, to the volunteers, without whom we could not offer you the program that you are about to discover.

Find us during the month of June on different events : Apéromix in the gardens of Salagon, and screenings sessions Cinécyclo in Montlaux, Lurs and Niozelles.

And it is with great joy that we are waiting for you from July 21 to 23 ! 

Laurent KOUBY
Cooksound Festival Director
