Message from the Director

Dear festival-goers,

For this 12th edition, the theme is particularly important to us and we are pleased to announce that the will resound in the Gardens and the Cloister of the Cordeliers Convent! SWING will resound in the Gardens and the Cloister of the Cordeliers Convent! 

Grand ball, initiation to swing, regional, national and international artists... the program promises beautiful moments of discovery, music, dance and sharing with highlights for young people: stories, comic book workshops, giant fresco to color and reading time in the gardens.

This year, in order to accentuate our commitment to the ecological transition, we have opted for a real DJ stage that is totally self-sufficient in energy, with a solar power supply and batteries ensuring a supply of electricity day and night.

COOK SIDE The culinary part will promote local producers and partners while offering high-quality and seasonal fast food on equally varied themes.

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. 

And it is with great joy that we are waiting for you from July 21 to 23 ! du 20 au 22 Juillet 2023 Couvent des Cordeliers Bd des Martyrs 04300 Forcalquier 

Laurent KOUBY, director of the Cooksound Festival
